There’s a cold snap coming in, check out our helpful tips on how to winterize your home plumbing, but if it just so happens that cold snap causes a pipe in your home to burst follow these steps:

Frozen Pipe

  • Close your main water shut-off valve to your house. Most shutoff valves are located where the water line enters the house, either at the front of your house where youconnect your hose, or basement near the hot water heater, or inside the garage.
  • Turn off the water heater. Locate the dedicated shut-off valve on the cold water inlet.
  • Remember, the repair of broken pipes on the customer’s side of the meter is the customer’s responsibility. Contact a plumber for repair work.
