With the possibility of inclement weather, please reference the below tips and tricks for keeping your plumbing and your house safe. You are welcome to call us at 901-278-4242 with any questions and concerns you may have!
Most Importantly: Know where and how to cut your water off in case of an emergency.
If necessary, you can cut the hot water off at the water heater, leaving the cold water on.
Any plumbing fixtures located on an exterior wall should be left running in a small stream (both hot and cold).
Leaving cabinet doors open below plumbing fixtures helps the heat in the house get to the plumbing.
Always unhook your outside hoses and cover your outside hydrants.
If your home is built with a conventional foundation with a crawlspace, it is best to cover your vent openings.
You always want to prevent the wind from getting to your plumbing.
In the event of an emergency and you are unable to cut your water off, MLGW can be contacted to assist.
