Tip - Avoiding Frozen Pipes
Let cold water drip from the faucets
Keep garage doors closed and sealed with weather stripping
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warm air to reach the plumbing
If you have young children or pets remove any chemicals.
Keep your thermostat set to a warm temperature. If you're leaving town, set it to no lower than 60 degrees.
Consider shutting off your water supply at your home's main valve.
Be sure to drain your pipes by turning on your faucets before leaving the home for long periods of time
If your pipes freeze: turn on the taps, try to warm the affected area with a hair dryer and call a plumber.
If you experience a burst in the pipe: immediately shut off the water at your home's main valve.
Locate this valve ahead of time.
