Be Water Wise and Winterize

 WinterizeYour Home

Winter will soon be upon us and that means below freezing overnight temperatures.  In addition, we often experience deep-freeze cold waves when temperatures do not rise above freezing all day.  The effects of frozen and bursting water pipes can be a nightmare for the inexperienced or unprepared resident.  Leaving your homes heat at 55 degrees F does not always ensure your pipes will not freeze when temperatures drop during deep freezes.  Every system is different.  If you have specific questions, please contact a plumber.  Winter storms can cause power outages, which disables most heating systems, which results in frozen pipes.  Whether you are a part-time or full-time resident, please follow these recommendations when leaving you home for short or extended absences:

 TURN OFF the WATER TO YOUR HOUSE:  Shut off the stop and drain valve.  This will stop the cold water supply and drain water from your house. 

• Make sure you turn it fully to the right to turn it off.  If it is not closed fully it can continue to run water into your house.
•  It is also a good idea to test it and make sure it works before winter. 
•  DO NOT USE THE SHUT OFF VALVE AT THE METER! 
• Mark your stop and drain valve with a stake so it is easily located in deep snow.

 DRAIN INDOOR PLUMBING:  Flush toilets and open faucets to remove water from interior lines.
• Close faucets once water is drained
• Pour biodegradable anti-freeze into all toilets and sinks to displace water in the traps.

 TURN OFF and DRAIN ALL EXTERIOR YARD IRRIGATION:  the CSD does not allow outdoor irrigation from November 1st to April 1st.
• Set automatic irrigation timers to OFF
• Turn off stop and drains to the irrigation system
• Disconnect garden hoses from hose bibs
• Wrap outdoor hose bibs with pipe insulation
