Brrr. Colder temperatures and short days ahead. As cold weather approaches, a little preparation can stop some big messes.
- Remove all outside hoses attached to your faucets.
- Put insulation caps over your faucets.
- Never shut your heat all the way off, especially if traveling. A cold snap could burst your pipes.
- Shut down your sprinkler system as soon as the first frost hits.
- Insulate pipes that are exposed to sub-freezing temperatures.
