Temperatures are dropping.  Here are a few pointers to help protect your pipes.

  • check sprinkler systems.  make sure they are turned off and drained.
  • Locate your main water shut-off and shut it off for the winter.
  • Remove exterior hoses.
  • Protect any pipes exposed to the cold. wrap them with insulation.

When Temperatures stay below freezing:

  • Open cabinet doors to pipes that are on exterior walls to let in warmer air.
  • Keep water running trough the pipes, even a small trickle.

If your pipes do freeze:

  • Shut off the water immediately
  • Thaw pipes with warm air.
  • One pipes are thawed be careful and slowly turn water back on checking joints for any cracks or leaks.
