Michigan has endured a deep freeze this winter so it is more important than ever to make sure that your pipes can withstand the frigid temperatures. Water pipes in the attic, crawl space, and basement need to be insulated. Foam insulation is available at most hardware stores and can be easily secured using electrical tape or copper wire. These exposed pipes as well as those that share an outside wall and the pipe between the water meter and your home are most susceptible to freezing. Avoid the headache of a bursting pipe, prepare your home.
Contact Putman & Son’s Plumbing 24/7 hotline for any of your plumbing needs.

Frozen pipes are often a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do as a homeowner to reduce the chance of your pipes freezing. Take time to address the following recommendations as temperature wind chills have dropped below freezing this winter already.
Take inventory of the uninsulated pipes in the unheated areas of your home. Heating uninhabitable areas is an inefficient use of energy; however, it is important for the pipes in these areas to be protected from extreme temperatures.
When indoor pipes are exposed to temperatures below freezing they can freeze within minutes and without any warning. To prevent this from happening, apply pipe insulation to every instance of vulnerable pipe. Special bend covers are available to cover non-linear sections. You should also be alert to pipes which run directly against exterior walls, even those within heated rooms. Temperature exchange between walls and pipes can occur rapidly.
Insulation is also useful for areas like attics, basements, and crawl spaces. By insulating these areas, your furnace will be able to function more efficiently and pipes naturally will remain warmer in the winter.
Keep your water heater maintained to make certain that it is fully operational this winter. Sending frigid water through extremely cold pipes is a recipe for disaster.

Plumbing diagnostics can uncover hidden issues within your home’s plumbing system. Homes have been designed to hide ancillary systems like plumbing, making it difficult and often impossible for homeowners to visibly inspect components. We have a variety of methods and tools at our disposal to diagnose plumbing issues.
Are you in the process of buying or renovating a home? Plumbing diagnostics can be useful for identifying any potential problems, sometimes before you have visible signs or they even happen. Hiring a certified, licensed plumber to fully inspect a plumbing system is recommended in addition to traditional pre-purchase home inspections.
Specialized tools make it possible for us to quickly discover the reason for poor performance and hidden leaks. In addition to solving the visible symptoms of plumbing problems, our objective is to discover the cause of the issue to perform a full repair. Putman & Son’s Plumbing are proud to offer a quick response and has a 24/7 hotline available to you for all your urgent plumbing needs.
Drains, pipes, toilets, tubs, and sinks represent where most residential plumbing problems originate. These issues cause more than stress, they likely waste water and energy too. Even small leaks have the potential to waste gallons of water every day. Many leaks remain unaddressed for weeks on end until damage becomes visible or a loss in water pressure is noticed.
If your home is experiencing plumbing troubles, the team at Putman & Son’s Plumbing is here to help. Contact us anytime regarding all of your plumbing needs. We guarantee all our work and provide exceptional workmanship in every repair.
