Know Where You Water Shutoff Is Located
It is very important to know where your water shutoff valve is located.
Locate your water shutoff valves so you can shut the water supply off quickly in case of damaged, leaking or frozen pipes or other plumbing emergency..
1. “Install an automatic shut-off valve on your main water line so you can quickly turn it off in a plumbing emergency. This valve prevents flooding from burst pipes while you are away from the property or unable to respond in time.”
2. “Provide tenants with detailed instructions on how to shut off the water supply in an emergency. Doing so will ensure tenants can address any plumbing issues quickly before they become serious problems.”
Prevent Frozen and Burst Pipes
- To keep water from freezing on an outdoor fixture during the winter, shut off the water valve to the outdoor spigot.
- Drain excess water from the pipe.
- To prevent indoor pipes from freezing, cover exposed pipes with foam insulation.
- Use cable ties to tie down pipe heating cable for pipes needing extra heat to stay fluid.
- If pipes under a sink are on an outdoor-facing wall, open up the cabinet doors to let the heat from the house flow underneath the sink.
- On frigid days, leave at least one sink on a slow drip to keep water moving in the pipes.
