WARNING! There will be a freeze tonight. Are you prepared? With temperatures getting as low as 29° over the weekend, we here at Goodbee Plumbing, want to make sure you are ready. Here are couple of tips to prevent your pipes from freezing or worse, breaking:
1) If your house is raised, wrap your pipes well and make sure to run your water through the night. No more than a slow drip, but enough to keep the water flowing. It is best to run water on multiple faucets.
2) For slab houses, make sure to run your water through the night. Again, no more than a drip, but enough to keep the water flowing. It is best to run water on multiple faucets.
This will allow for a constant flow of water to assist in the prevention of your pipes from freezing or breaking. If you have any questions about these prevention methods, please call our office at any time. We are here to help!
Now, if the unfortunate happens and you forget to protect your pipes or you didn’t read this lovely blog and your pipes do freeze or break...no need to panic! Goodbee Plumbing will be here all weekend. We will have all of our professionally trained technicians here and prepared for any issues that may arise from this freeze.
One last tip! As we are animal lovers at Goodbee Plumbing, we just want to add a friendly reminder to please bring your animals in tonight. It will be below freezing and if you feel the cold then they feel the cold too!
