Cold weather tips to prevent freezing pipes

Pipes freeze due to quick drops in temperature, poor insulation and thermostats set too low. Both plastic and copper pipes can freeze and burst, and a cracked pipe can cause flooding, structural damage and mold. When pipes freeze, water in the pipes turns to ice and expands. The pressure causes cracks, and even a small one can leak 250 gallons in a day. Here are some tips you can follow that will help prevent freezing.

  • Disconnect outside water hoses.
  • Inspect outside faucets, and repair dripping or leaking faucets.
  • If your home has an interior shut-off valveleading to outside faucets, close them and drain water from the pipes.
  • Cover outside faucets with a faucet insulation kit available at home and garden stores.
  • Apply heat tape around exposed pipes.
  • Allow a trickle of hot and cold water to drip overnight in sinks and bathtubs that have supply pipes that run along outside walls.
