Winter Weather Tips & Advise

When temperatures fall below 32 degrees, water pipes are at risk of freezing and bursting. Even tiny cracks can release hundreds of gallons of water a day, which will cause your bill to skyrocket and cause flooding and structural damage to your home. Below are tips to help with your water pipes.

Learn where your customer’s water shutoff valve is.

Make sure the pipes in your house are protected from freezing.

Remove your water hoses and cover the spigots.

If you have a sprinkler system still running make sure it is not scheduled to run while the temperatures are below freezing.

Open cabinet/vanity doors so that warm air can reach the pipes underneath your sinks.

Leave water dripping or trickling slowly from your faucets.

Wrap any pipes you have access to.

Closely monitor all pipes
