Cold weather ahead: protect your pipes!

By: AtYourService.Seattle.Gov

burst-pipeWith cold temperatures – and even some snow! – in the forecast, it’s time to make sure you and your home are prepared to weather whatever Mother Nature sends our way.

Prep Your Pipes

Freezing temperatures can burst water pipes around your home, potentially causing serious property damage and wasting large amounts of water. Follow these tips to prepare your pipes for the cold:

  • Insulate pipes in your home’s crawl space, attic, or basement.
  • Insulate outdoor pipes and faucets to keep them from freezing
  • Disconnect garden hoses.
  •  When the temperature hits freezing, open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and near exterior walls.
