Our cottage winterization checklist includes:Contact the city to shut off the main water supply
Shut down of the well (if applicable)
Drain out the water heater
Drain water softeners, water lines, toilets, sinks and all plumbing fixtures
Put safe, potable/RV anti-freeze into the toilets and anything that has drain traps to assure no freezing occurs. No matter how well done the pipe blow out process is there will always be a little water that collects in the traps that could freeze and burst. Our experience tell us that putting a small amount of safe, potable/RV anti-freeze into toilets and drain traps is critical to the safety of your plumbing system.
We provide customized winterization services so you can have a worry-free winter
