Winterizing Your Home

Sub-freezing winter temperatures could cause damage to water pipes and other property. As the weather gets colder, it is always good to prepare your home in case of a freeze. Protect your water pipes by doing the following:
  • Cover all exposed outdoor water lines with pipe insulation.
  • Cover all outdoor back-flow preventers and irrigation systems with pipe insulation
  • Leave cabinet doors open at each sink to allow warm air to circulate around the pipes.
  • Leave one water tap per household slightly open so that water drips continuously.
  • In case of a water line break, turn off the water at the water meter box.
