Winterize outdoor pipes

It's been a mild winter so far in PG County, MD  but as the temperatures are getting steadily colder it's important to remember to winterize outdoor pipes.  A few simple steps will prevent your pipes from freezing and potentially causing major damage and expense.

Winterize outdoor pipes:

Step 1:  Turn off the water to the outdoor pipes

Step 2:  Open the outdoor faucet to allow any water in the line to run off

Step 3:  Leave the faucet open until the Spring when the temperatures are consistently above freezing

Step 4:  If desired, insulation can be added to the outdoor pipes.

 

In addition to the steps necessary to winterize outdoor pipes don't forget to always leave the heat on at a minimum level even when you are away from home to minimize the chances of the indoor pipes freezing.

 

Simple steps taken to protect your home will ensure that your home survives winter with no damage.
