This week’s sustained freezing temperatures could wreck havoc on water pipes. Protect your pipes by:
– Opening cabinet doors under sinks adjacent to outside walls. – Letting water drip slowly from inside faucets. – Keep the doors shut on an attached garage if plumbing is routed through the space. – Protect pipes that have frozen in the past
If the pipes freeze: – Shut off the water immediately. – Thaw slowly by applying heat with a hair dryer, space heater, or hot water. – After thawing slowly turn water on to check for cracks and leaks.
