BEFORE A FREEZE
Wrap and cover all exposed faucets and pipes located outside or in unheated areas of your home.
Remove garden hoses from outside faucets.
Know where cutoff valves to your inside water system are and how to use them.
IN SUB-FREEZING WEATHER TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS IMMEDIATELY
Faucet Dripping - Let water drip slowly from your kitchen, bath face bowl and bathtub faucets. The drip should be approximately one drip every 3 seconds. Please do not run the faucet in a steady stream, or leave on all the way, as serious flooding could occur. Leave dripping until the weather warms up.
Cabinet Doors - Be sure to leave open cabinet doors under kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow heat to get to the plumbing.
