Don't Let Winter Plumbing Problems Leave You Out in the Cold!

During the winter, there are a few plumbing problems that tend to happen. At J. Griffin Heating and Plumbing, we offer a wide range of plumbing services and have a lot of experience with these common winter plumbing problems. Here are some things that could go wrong, in order of how likely they are to happen.


If the temperature drops low enough in Massachusetts to freeze your pipes, you should take care of the problem before they burst. You can keep the pipes from freezing by wrapping them in insulation. If your pipes are already frozen, look for low or no water pressure from your taps or showers. This could be a sign that the pipes are frozen. In this case, you should turn off the water and call J Griffin Heating and Plumbing so they can fix the problem right away.


Water line leaks can happen at any time, but they tend to happen more often in the winter. This is because sudden drops in temperature can cause the water line to split. When temperatures drop, the water line contracts, and when temperatures rise, it expands. Sometimes, the water line can’t handle these sudden changes, and leaks happen. Temperatures can change quickly, so keep an eye out for any signs of leaks and let us know if you find any.


When it’s cold outside, water heaters have to work harder to heat up the water, which isn’t always a problem if the heater is working right. But if the water heater is old and has been used a lot, it may not be able to keep the water at the right temperature. Most standard water heaters last about 10 years before they start to break down. If your water heater can’t keep the temperature you want, it might be time to get a new one.


During the holidays, people eat and party, but it’s important to watch what you put down the drain. Grease, coffee grounds, and bits of food can stick to the sides of pipes and cause blockages, which can lead to drains that won’t drain. Put all food waste in the trash to avoid this problem.
