All You Ever Wanted to Know About Insurance

WEATHER ALERT: Freezing temperatures ahead - take proactive steps to prevent frozen pipes!

Before It Gets Cold

•  Check and drain the water supply lines to your sprinkler or irrigation system
•  Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses and place an inexpensive foam cover over the faucet.
•  Insulate water pipes.
•  Know how to shut off your water.

As Temperatures Drop

•  Keep your house warm - at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit
•  Open cabinet doors under kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow heat to reach the pipes
•  Open indoor faucets, hot and cold, to allow a trickle of water

When a Pipe Freezes

•  Turn off the main water supply and call a plumber
•  Thaw the pipe with warm air - try using a hair dryer or heating pad 
•  Careful turning water back on - check for cracks
