Avoiding Burst or Frozen Pipes

  • Leave your heating on, using a low setting, especially if your home is going to be empty for a while.
  • If you live in a flat, it’s sensible to leave the heating on low in rooms where the mains pipe supplies neighbouring flats.
  • If you’re going to be away for a long time, turn off your water supply and drain the system – a Licensed Plumber will be able to give you advice about this.
  • If your neighbours don’t have a key for your home make sure they have contact details for someone who does, in case of an emergency.
  • Your water tank should be fitted with an insulation jacket or alternatively, the top and sides of the tank can be wrapped with suitable insulation material.
  • Don’t place loft insulation under the tank, though, as this stops heat from the rooms below helping to keep the tank warm.
  • If you have toilet cisterns, water tanks or pipes in exposed places or unheated outbuildings, make sure you insulate them. Better still, if not in use, drain them for winter.
  • Dripping water increases the risk of freezing, so have any leaks at taps or valves repaired as soon as you discover them.
