September is near, which can only mean one thing (besides pumpkin spice season): cooler weather is soon approaching. Sure, it may not entail frosty, cold, foggy weather yet, but it’s getting there, folks!
For our team at ASJ Industrial Hose & Fittings Inc., this is an important time for us to inform our customers that now is the moment to start planning ahead and ensuring that your commercial hoses are going to be best taken care of during the temperature drop soon to come. Knowing what you’re going to do during these upcoming chilly months is important so that you’re already ready when the time arrives.
How to Care for Your Commercial Hoses in the Lower Temperatures
It may not be time just yet, but it doesn’t hurt to start learning how to adequately care for your industrial hoses when the ambient temperatures are cold outside.
There are many little (but incredibly vital things) you can do to best ensure the safety of your precious hose supply, including:
- Remembering to turn off flow of water to your hose when it’s not in use
- Releasing any remaining water from your hose after shutting off the water
- Disconnecting your hoses from their valves to prevent freezing of water pipes
- Storing your hoses and hose accessories in a warm (not hot), covered area
- Making sure any part of your hoses or hose accessories are not exposed to harsh outdoor conditions such as frost, freezing temperatures, or hail after being stored
Keeping your industrial hoses in good condition for as long as possible all starts with responsibility and proper care.
