Protect Your Home BEFORE Temperatures Drop

We’re already hearing this year’s winter season is going to be colder and snowier than last year.

Protect Your Home This Winter from Costly Repairs

With winter just around the corner, take these simple steps to keep your water pipes and meter from freezing when the temperatures drop.

Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses.
Detaching the hose allows water to drain from the pipe. Otherwise, a single hard, overnight freeze can burst either the faucet or the pipe it’s connected to.
