Winter weather has arrived early this year. Keeping an eye on the weather forecast and protecting your pipes and property can save you a lot of trouble and the unnecessary cost for plumbing repairs.
“When temperatures drop below freezing, standing water can easily freeze overnight,” said Garland Water Utilities Director Robert Ashcraft.
When temperatures are expected to drop below freezing, remember to drip your faucets, open cabinets under sinks, and cover or wrap outside pipes and spigots. Don’t forget to turn off your sprinkler system. Icy streets and sidewalks can cause injuries and accidents that can leave you personally liable. These proactive measures can help prevent frozen or burst pipes and costly repairs.
