Winter Isn't Over Yet
The groundhog has indeed seen its shadow, but more importantly, it’s only February. Spring may be just around the corner, but the possibility for freezing temperatures still exists. It’s important that you know how to keep your pipes from being damaged by the extreme cold.
Remember to add insulation to pipes in your cabinets, attic, basement, and crawlspace. You should also drain water from swimming pools and water sprinkler supply lines. Additionally, make sure to close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs and keep the outside valves open.
Although pre-planning can go a long way toward keeping your home protected from the cold weather, oftentimes water damage is not preventable.
