Winter Plumbing Tips

Winter Plumbing Tips

  • If you don’t already know find out where the main shut off valve is to your home (this will keep a small leak from turning into a big problem)
  • Report broken or missing shut off valve lids to the water department to keep from filling and freezing the valve
  • Look for drafts around pipes and fixtures and seal them
  • Have pipes insulated in areas that are not heated
  • On nights or long periods when the temperature is below freezing, leave the faucet or fixture furthest away from the meter dripping to help prevent pipes from freezing (Moving water is harder to freeze than water at a stand-still)
