    Do not let this happen to you...........

    Some things to keep in mind as the temps begin to drop.

    1. Know where your main shut off valve is. Know how to turn the water off in your home in case of an emergency.

    2. Close the foundation vents during the winter.

    3. Remove the garden hoses from your outdoor hose bibs. 

    4. Make sure that there are no exposed areas on your water lines. Areas to check would be garage, attic, well head/pressure tank if outside.

    5. Do not turn the heat down during extremely low temperatures. 

    6. Most homes in this area are built to survive the forecasted temps over the next week or so. Be more diligent when the temperature reaches single digits for an extended period.
