WaterSafe's 5 Point Checklist To Help Landlords Avoid Plumbing Issues This Winter

To help you cope with common plumbing problems, and the best ways on how to fix and prevent them, WaterSafe, the UK body for approved plumbers, has compiled a five-point checklist to help landlords avoid plumbing problems this winter.

1) Locate your stop tap – if a pipe freezes and bursts in your home you need to be able to shut off the water supply quickly.

2) Insulate outside taps and pipes in unheated areas like lofts, garages and outbuildings to help prevent them from freezing and bursting.

3) Repair any leaky taps or valves – this will stop the frost getting in and you’ll save water too.

4) Check if your central heating boiler needs a service.

5) If your house will be empty, leave your heating on low – about 14 degrees centigrade. Or, if you’re going to be away for a while, turn off your water supply and drain the system.
