Help Prevent Frozen Pipes This Winter

With extreme temperatures around this winter, homeowners can lessen the chances of frozen pipes with this simple preventive measure. Turn on both the hot and cold taps so that they produce the tiniest line of water trickling out of the tap. By leaving faucets slightly open so that water barely trickles, water can continue to move through the pipes which helps to prevent freezing of both water lines and meters.
