Protect Your Pipes...(Issue 178)

Frozen Pipes article

Take these steps to get ready for winter:

  • Cover faucets and exposed pipes with insulation, or wrap them with thick towels.
  • Open cabinet doors. This allows heat to circulate and keeps interior pipes warm.
  • Keep faucets running with a small trickle of water or constant drip.
  • Secure basement doors, windows, and crawl space openings.
  • Remove garden hoses from outdoor faucets.
  • Open outside hose taps so water can drain.
  • Apply electrically-powered heat tapes.
