As we’re starting to drop into colder than normal temperatures, we’re requesting that all residents run cold water in lower sinks at pencil width while home during the ongoing sub-freezing temperatures. This simple step helps prevent pipes from freezing.
- Clear the sink of obstructions
- Ensure water drains properly
(You’ll want to make sure the water doesn’t overflow and cause floods; so make sure drains are functioning properly)
- Turn on the cold water
(The water stream should be very thin, roughly pencil width)
- Turn off the water when you leave
(No need to run water when you’re not home.)
