Prevent Frozen Water Pipes

To prepare your pipes for fall and winter, unhook any attached hoses from outdoor taps and drain any remaining water from the hose. To prevent frozen taps, cover them with a Styrofoam connector that you can purchase from a hardware store.

If you have pipes that are not underground, disconnect them from the water source if possible and blow air through them. If it’s not possible to disconnect them, put insulation on or over the exposed piping.
