Help Prevent Pipe Freezing

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.

  1. Clear the sink of obstructions
  2. 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)
  3. Turn on the cold water
    (The water stream should be very thin, roughly pencil width)
  4. Turn off the water when you leave
    (No need to run water when you’re not home.)

Following the above steps will ensure consistent water flow through underground pipes, greatly reducing the risk of freezing!
