The following steps can help to protect your water pipes and water meter from freezing temperatures:
Wrap any exposed water pipes and meter with heat tape.
Add insulation around the water meter.
Make sure your outside hose spigots are frost free, otherwise turn off the valves inside your home.
When temperatures plummet, it’s a good idea to keep a small amount of water flowing through the pipes within your home to keep pipes from freezing. This can be achieved by keeping a faucet turned on slightly; usually a steady drip will be sufficient.
By taking these precautionary measures you may be able to avoid costly repair bills and water damage to your home.
