A burst pipe is no good pipe
With this cold weather come freezing water and pipes. With very little to no snow cover to insulate or protect your pipes, they are exposed to the freezing winds and ground. There are many precautions everyone can take to prevent a pipe bursting and may save you hundreds to thousands of dollars.
- Heat tape. You can go to your local hardware store to purchase. It will keep your pipes at the temperature to prevent them from freezing.
- Stacking straw or hay bales around the foundation of your home can help keep the wind and snow out with helping to keep the little bit of warmth in.
- Leaving water trickling. Leave your faucets on just a little bit can save so much. Keeping water flowing can save it from freezing. It also releases any pressure that may build up from freezing and expanding
