Winter Plumbing Tips

The same natural forces that trigger cold-weather breaks in our underground mains can cause pipes to burst in your own household. Here are some tips to avoid costly damage.

Winterize your sprinkler system.

Disconnect, drain, roll up, and store garden hoses.

Know the location of your water shut-off valve and test it regularly. In most homes, the shut-off valve is in the basement or the crawl space, on a wall facing the street.

Winterize unheated or vacant buildings.

Insulate water pipes that may be vulnerable to the cold or have caused problems before.
