Freezing Temperature

When temperatures are consistently at or below freezing:
  • If you have pipes that are vulnerable to freezing, turn water off at the source and empty the pipes of residual water.
  • Open cabinet doors to expose pipes to warmer room temperatures to help keep them from freezing.
If your pipes freeze:
  • Shut off the water immediately. Don't attempt to thaw frozen pipes unless the water is shut off. Freezing can often cause unseen cracks in pipes or joints.
  • Apply heat to the frozen pipe by warming the air around it, or by applying heat directly to a pipe. You can use a hair dryer, space heater or hot water. Be sure not to leave space heaters unattended, and avoid the use of kerosene heaters or open flames.
  • Once the pipes have thawed, turn the water back on slowly and check for cracks and leaks.
