When the temperature gets colder, your pipes might be in danger! Frozen pipes can be a common problem if it stays below freezing for most of the winter. Instead of having to deal with the hassle of frozen pipes, follow these tips to keep your water moving all winter long!

Watch your water pressure. The first sign of a frozen pipe is restricted water flow. If you do notice a change, contact Millennium Plumbing ASAP!

At night, when the temperature is coldest, let a small amount of cold water trickle from your faucets. The moving water will not freeze, so your pipes will not be in danger.

Keep the temperature in your home above 55° to prevent pipes from freezing and open cabinet doors under sinks and faucets and near exterior walls to help circulate warm air and keep pipes warmer.

Disconnect outdoor hoses and drain outdoor pipes before winter to prevent damage. If a hose is left connected during cold weather ice can form.

After you disconnect the hose, install an exterior insulated faucet jacket. This will protect the outdoor faucets and the connecting lines running into your home.

Follow these tips for a winter without plumbing issues!
