How to Winterize Your Home

Each winter, many homeowners face the expense and inconvenience of frozen water pipes. We advise our customers to have irrigation systems turned off and winterized by Nevada Day (or Halloween). Because lawns will be going dormant as the weather turns from fall to winter, this is a good date to remember as a guide. Monitor the weather—and specifically freezing temperatures—to be sure you winterize to protect your pipes.

Why Is Pipe Freezing a Problem?

Water expands as it freezes.  This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including plastic and metal pipes. No matter the “strength” of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break.  Pipes that freeze most frequently are those exposed to severe cold, like outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler likes and water supply pipes in in unheated interior areas like basements, and crawl spaces, attics, garages or kitchen cabinets.  Also, pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are subject to freezing.

To avoid frozen pipes and repair costs, please follow these precautions: Read More
