•OPEN A WATER TAP WIDE OPEN FOR 2 TO 3 MINUTES SEVERAL TIMES A DAY TO GET AN EXTRA FLOW THROUGH.

•IF YOUR HOME WILL BE UNATTENDED FOR MORE THAN 12 HOURS, HAVE A FRIEND OR NEIGHBOR COME IN AND RUN THE WATER EVERY 8 TO 12 HOURS.

•IF YOUR WATER PIPE BECOMES FROZEN, IMMEDIATELY PUT A HEAT SOURCE NEAR THE INSIDE PIPE ENTRANCE INTO THE FOUNDATION THIS OFTEN THAWS THE PIPE BEFORE IT CAN GET FROZEN MORE SOLID.
