It’s that time of year when we begin to see freeze warnings in Tulsa! When the temperature drops, there’s a potential for pipes to burst. You can help prevent winter water issues in your Tulsa home by doing the following:
- Disconnect your hose – hoses trap water. When you leave the hose connected, the water does not drain out. The water freezes and then leaks into the house.
- Open cabinet doors and laundry room doors where they don’t have good air flow, especially if the home is vacant, or you’re leaving for a period of time.
- Leave the heat on at 55 degrees.
- If the home is vacant, or you’re going away, turn off the main water supply lines and drain the pipes.
Take the time to winterize your home properly. These quick and easy steps may help prevent costly issues.
