How can I prevent my pipes from freezing?

Prevent frozen water pipes and breaks in your home during freezing temperatures by following these preparedness tips:

  • Let water drip from a fixture that is the furthest away from the water supply line. 
  • Leave cabinet doors open under the sinks so heat from the room reaches the pipes. 
  • Make sure the water is turned off to outside spigots, remove any hoses or attachments and cover the spigot.
  • Locate your emergency water shut-off valve in case a water pipe freezes and breaks.
