Here are a few tips to keep the plumber away this winter.
  • Drain water hoses and store them inside for the winter.
  • Shut off outside bibs from the inside then leave the outside valve open.
  • Make sure the outdoor meter pit lid is on tight.
  • Insulate pipes in crawl spaces.
  • Seal leaks that allow cold air to get inside near pipes.
  • Make sure underground irrigation systems have been purged of all water.
  • Make sure automatic timers and supply valves have been turned off.
