Frozen pipes

With the cold weather already upon us we need to start thinking of frozen pipes. Check to see if you have water pipes running on top of your foundation walls. If you do, there is a good chance that the pipes may freeze. Better get some insulation on them. Also, now is a good time to shut off all exterior water spickets from inside the house and leave the outside faucet open. Make sure all waterlines in unheated garages and crawlspaces are also insulated. It’s a good idea to insulate the traps also. This will prevent ice from building up and coming up in the drain!
