Preventing Frozen Pipes

preventing frozen pipes for web

Before winter sets in:

  • Repair broken windows, doors & walls.
  • Tightly close doors and windows to the outside.
  • Insulate outside walls.
  • Insulate your pipes and meters.  Consult your local plumbing or hardware store about proper materials.
  • Seal all leaks in crawl spaces and basements.
  • Turn off water to outside faucets.
  • Be prepared in case of frozen pipes.  Store enough drinking water: one gallon per person, per day for at least three days.

If a pipe freezes:

  • Completely open the cold-water faucet closest to the pipe.  (Relieves pressure and reduces the chance of breakage).
  • If you decide to thaw the pipe yourself, use a hair dryer, NOT a blow torch.
  • If in doubt, call a registered plumber for help.
