Protect Your Pipes: Last Minute Tips
Local plumbers are gearing up to get busy over the next 48 hours, as a deep freeze hits the mountains - and mountain homes.
If you didn't get a chance to winterize, there are still some key preventitive measures you can take before the temperatures plummet tonight.
Make sure hoses are disconnected from outdoor faucets, garage, attic and crawl space doors are shut tightly and check foundation vents to make sure they're shut as well. If wind gets in through even small gaps, it can blast a pipe and freeze it quickly.
Another tip - turn on your faucets before you go to bed. Keeping water moving through the pipes can precent a pipe from freezing, and eventually bursting.
