The best way to prevent frozen pipes, and costly repairs, this winter is to prepare in advance.

Make sure to do the following:

  • Drain outside pipes and faucets

  • Cover or insulate exterior faucets and vents

  • Caulk and seal openings to eliminate drafts

  • Insulate pipes in unheated areas

  • Winterize irrigation systems and backflow devices

    If a water pipe does burst, turn off the main shut-off valve and call a plumber.
