The Plumbing Life Saver explains there are common winter plumbing problems that affect the area due to dropping temperatures. One of the most common issues for households in port stephens in winter is backed up kitchen drains. Colder temperatures can cause grease that has been washed down the drain to congeal, which can create a clog and back up the drain. If the issue is not addressed, it can get much worse and cause expensive plumbing problems.

According to The Plumbing Life Saver, another common issue is the laundry plumbing system being affected by colder temperatures. If the plumbing lines are too shallow in the ground, the laundry drainage system can back up as most people use cold water to wash their clothing to save on energy costs.

There is also the possibility for pipes to burst in winter. Cold temperatures can cause pipes to expand and contract, which can damage the metal and create major plumbing issues that can be expensive to repair, explains The Plumbing Life Saver. Water that sits in the pipes can also freeze which can cause damage. 

By taking the right precautionary steps, The Plumbing Life Saver says many common winter plumbing issues can be prevented. Ensuring anything that is washed down the kitchen sink is flushed with hot water will help to avoid clogs and back ups. In winter, switching to a warm water wash cycle can help keep laundry pipes that are shallow in the ground from freezing.
