Take Care of Your Water Pipes During Upcoming Cold Weather

Unusually cold weather is being forecast for this weekend, so make sure you take some steps to keep your water pipes from bursting.

We have a complete guide that will help you protect your pipes, and thaw them should they freeze.

Here's all the information here:

Don't Forget To Protect Your Garden Hoses As Well

Your garden hoses can also burst in the cold. So spend a moment protecting them.

If you leave the hoses outside, take off the spray nozzles and take out any kinks so there is plenty of room for the water in the hoses to expand as temperatures drop.

Make Sure Your Automatic Sprinklers Are Off

With a very wet winter, it's obvious. But, since we advise you to run them early in the morning during the dry months, maybe you wouldn't notice if they are are running. It's a good idea to check to make sure they are off.
