Preventing Frozen Water Pipes

As extreme temperatures are approaching the area, the City of Mishawaka is asking homeowners to take preventative measures to help protect water pipes and meters from freezing.

Turn both the hot and cold taps on so that they produce the tiniest line of water trickling out of the tap. Leaving faucets slightly open so water barely trickles keeps the water moving through the pipes and helps to prevent freezing of both the water lines and meters.

Following this simple tip could help save you from untold expense and cleanup efforts.
