First, make sure that your outside pipe are insulated well. Before winter, drain your hoses and disconnect your outdoor faucets. A bit of prevention prevents a costly plumbing bill. Clean the aerator to fix low water pressure issues that are caused by the buildup of sediment. To clean the aerator, you first want to disassemble the faucet and remove it. After that, remove the aerator and scrub it clean with a fine brush. You can use vinegar or some other type of cleaning solution to assist in the task. Rinse and reassemble the aerator, then reattach it to your faucet. By removing any grit, grime and debris from the aerator, the water pressure should significantly increase. If you have plumbing problems caused by grout in the water lines, it is best not to attempt to fix it yourself. You could try to break up all the grout to send it down further.

Your pipes can freeze if temperatures around them fall below freezing. At best, it can take time for them to thaw and for you to be able to have running water. The worst case scenario is a busted pipe and a costly repair. Ensure that a septic tank is emptied approximately five yearly, and make sure it is properly maintained. This will keep sediment from hanging out in your tank and eventually causing there to be a backup in your home. Getting your septic tank drained occasionally may be expensive, but it's dirt cheap compared to the cost of repairing a damaged septic system or the cleanup cost when raw sewage backs up into your home.
