Cold Weather Tips


During periods of extreme temperatures below freezing, keep the pipes flowing by opening lower cabinet doors and leaving a pencil size stream of water running in the sink.  It is also advisable to insulate or add heat tape to unprotected water pipes and water meters.

Never use an open flame or torch to thaw frozen water pipes.  Instead, use a hairdryer.  It is much safer for you and your pipes.
