General Winter Maintenance

A number of drainage maintenance operations are directly linked to the seasons, and especially to the winter and spring periods. These operations require good continuous monitoring of weather conditions, and a maintenance contractor with a good ”touch” for operational timing to prevent road damages occurring, and prolong the lifetime of the pavement.

Neglecting such maintenance works can have a major effect on annual paving costs. A good bonus system for contractors doing good work in these operations, as well as stiff sanctions for failing to deliver performance, would be a profitable option for road owners.

The best way to ensure your plumbing system is working properly is to schedule annual inspections with a professional. In addition to annual inspections there are a few things you can do that will save you money and effort in the long run. We have summarized some key tasks that most people can do themselves – but if you’re not comfortable Damm 24 is ready to help with any of your plumbing repair and maintenance needs. We are located in Glasgow, Scotland.

Why is winter-proofing drains and sewers important?

Water expands in volume when it freezes. If you freeze a can of Coke, for example, it may burst in your freezer. The same thing can happen to your company’s drains and sewers, which can cause a lot of damage to your plumbing system and property.

To prevent a frozen sewer line, use insulation normal residential insulation can usually do the trick, but if you are in an area where the temperature drops exceptionally low or your sewer and pipes are exposed to a draft, rather invest in thicker insulation.

There are a few options to insulate your pipes. Tubular insulation works well, but if you are doing the job yourself be sure to carefully measure the diameter of the pipes to ensure that you buy the right size.

 An often-overlooked part of winter-proofing a plumbing system is to close all outside hose connections. Open the hose connection so that any water in the hose will run out and close the valve that controls the water flow to the hose cock outside the building.
