Preventing Frozen Pipes
Extreme weather conditions and continuous subfreezing temperatures can cause the water in culinary lines to freeze. This could leave your home without water or cause the lines to break and flood. To prevent this from happening, please take some precautionary steps.
Tips to prevent Freeze ups:
-Disconnect all outside hoses and make sure sprinkler systems are shut off and properly drained.
-Insulate plumbing near open, uninsulated exterior walls such as in the basement.
-Insulate exterior hose faucets.
-Leave a faucet running slightly in the house during sub freezing temperatures. A continuous stream, about half the diameter of a pencil. This will keep water flowing through the pipes.
