  • How To Protect Your Water Pipes from Freezing this Winter

    Seven Ways You Can Protect Your Home’s Water Pipes This Winter

     
    The Region of Peel is responsible for maintaining and upgrading the water and sewer pipes outside your property line. For those residents who are homeowners, you are responsible for maintaining water and sewer pipes from your property line to inside your house.

    In extremely cold weather your pipes can freeze leaving you without water, or cause your pipes to burst resulting in expensive property damage.

     

    To help prepare your home for the cold weather follow the steps below to help prevent frozen pipes.

     

    1. Before the first frost find your outdoor shut-off valve and turn it off. The valve is inside your home close to where your outside taps are.
    2. Disconnect your garden hoses and allow outside taps to drain.
    3. Look for areas in your home where pipes may freeze. This could be in the basement or crawlspace, near an outside wall, or in the attic or garage. Insulate these pipes with foam pipe covers available from home improvement centres or building supply stores.
    4. Caulk areas that may have a draft such as windows and doors, dryer vents and areas in the garage.
    5. Protect your water meter by insulating the pipes around it. Your water meter is found in the lowest part of your home beside the main water shut-off valve. If your meter is located inside a cabinet, leave the doors open to allow warm air to reach it.
    6. If you are going away turn off your main water shut-off valve near your water meter and drain your pipes through a sink or tap in the lowest level of your home. Have someone check the house daily to ensure the heat is on and no problems occur.
    7. Maintain a consistent temperature of 15 C or 60 F in your home at all times.

    You can visit our website at peelregion.ca/frozenpipes for a video on winterizing your indoor pipes and tips on what to do in the event that your pipes do freeze. You can also call the Region at 905-791-7800 at any time to log a service call.
