Frozen Pipes Public Education - December 22, 2017

Prevent Frozen Pipes Image.JPG

 

Be prepared! Protect your pipes from freezing

With the busy holiday season approaching, don't forget to take the steps necessary to protect your pipes from freezing. If you are leaving for an extended period of time, turn off the water at the main service valve in the basement and open the taps to drain the water from your plumbing lines. Homeowners should also open kitchen, bathroom and laundry cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate around the plumbing. Get more frozen pipe prevention tips.

Be prepared! Protect your pipes from freezing

Frozen pipes can leave you without water or cause your pipes to burst, leading to expensive property damage. If your pipes are prone to freezing, you may wish to contact a plumber for advice. Here are some tips to help protect your home:

• Know where to find your main water shut-off valve (in case your pipes burst).

• Insulate pipes most prone to freezing, especially near outside walls and in crawl spaces, the attic and garage.

• Seal air leaks in areas where pipes are located. Check around windows and doors, electrical wiring, dryer vents and pipes.

• Drain and shut the outdoor water supply as outdoor faucets are the first to freeze.

• Keep areas that contain indoor pipes above 8°C, especially near the water meter.

• In extreme cold weather, you can choose to run a pencil thin stream of water to keep water moving. However, you will be charged for the water used if you choose this step.
