Helpful Tips for Winter

Get ready for cold winter weather with some helpful tips, courtesy of the American Water Works Association (AWWA).

  • Pipe wrap, “heat tape”
  • Sprinkler system shut down and drain
  • Open sink cabinets, to let warm air reach pipes
  • Never turn the heat off when leaving the house (55 degrees is recommended)
  • Let faucets drip during extreme weather, water is less likely to freeze when it’s moving. It can also help to reduce pressure if it does freeze.
