Keeping Ice Where It Belongs
Frozen pipes are not something we typically have to worry about here in Charleston. And we much prefer our ice to stick to chilling our cocktails and not our pipes. However, it's going to get cold this weekend so, as a reminder that ice does occasionally cause some winter woes, Charleston Water Systems has great information and tips on to protect your home or business from a winter storm related water loss. From insulating pipes in advance to as simple as letting faucets drip in below 32 degree temps. Check out the full article here.
As many of the homes in the South are on a slab and have plumbing in the attic, even a small leak can cover a lot of territory as it not only seeps horizontally, but down into the lower floors as well. Just a few moments of preparation, could very well save you thousands in damages.
