CITY OF WHEATON: Prevent Pipes from Freezing
City of Wheaton issued the following announcement on Jan. 29.
The City's Water Division encourages you to follow these tips to prevent pipes from freezing in your home during extreme temperatures.
- Make sure to insulate pipes in unheated areas or against outside walls and seal any leaks that may let cold air in.
- Keep your garage door closed if your water meter is located in that area.
- Disconnect your garden hose and shut off the water supply to outside faucets.
- If the temperature gets extremely cold, open cabinet doors under sinks to allow heat to get to pipes and let a faucet drip at a trickle if possible.
