After Labour Day, it is usually time to close down your cabin, trailer or vacation house for the winter. One of the biggest issues is preventing your pipes from freezing during the off-season, which is a very common problem.
Experienced plumbers in Edmonton recommend that you should partially winterize any time the residence is not used full-time or when it will be left unoccupied for long stretches. You should completely winterize your cabin or trailer after Labour Day and continue until the middle of spring.
You will need to go through a few steps to winterize your cabin or trailer. If you will not be parking a trailer in a covered, warm space, do follow these winterizing tips too:
Even when you follow all of these steps, you may not get all of the water drained from your cabin’s pipes. If you experience any breakage or pipe issues, Always Plumbing & Heating is here to help.
