Shutting The Water Off For The Winter

Shutting The Water Off For The WinterIt’s not uncommon in Minnesota for people to pack up and head to warmer climates during the winter months. One common question we at Dan’s Plumbing and Septic are asked is how to properly shut off the water to the entire house to ensure pipes don’t freeze.

Let’s break the process down step-by-step:

Dealing With Low Water Pressure

Dealing With Low Water PressureWe’ve all likely been there before – we turn on the faucet and the water pressure is low. Is it because someone is taking a shower? Did someone start a load of laundry? Is the dishwasher running? Has my plumbing gone bad? These might all be thoughts that went through your head at the time. While low water pressure is certainly an annoyance, it is fixable. The plumbing professionals at Dan’s Plumbing and Septic in the Twin Cities want to help.

There are several reasons why the pressure in your faucet might be low. First, it’s best to check multiple faucets. If the issue is present only at one fixture, then you have an isolated incident with one device.
