Tips On How To Protect Your Pipes

Tips On How To Protect Your Pipes

The Amador Water Agency wants to remind you to protect your pipes. It happens every year – freezing temperatures sneak up on you and suddenly you’re dealing with a broken pipe and a lot of water loss. They have some tips to help prevent that and suggest you do it now if you haven’t already. You should be able to do these things yourself: wrap hoses bibs and water lines that are outside with insulating pipe wrap and do the same with any irrigation systems. Disconnect, drain and store your hoses. Also, know where your main water shutoff valve is so you can get to it quickly if a pipe bursts. Make sure your pets water doesn’t freeze over, too. Also, have a supply of bottled water on hand in case something does happen. If your pipes break and you are an AWA customer, you can call them 24/7 at 223-3018.
