AUDIO: Protecting Water Pipes from Freezing, Bursting

Share this post

Frozen and burst water pipes are a major concern when it gets this cold, and the damage that can cause is extensive and expensive. Jack Hines, owner of Hines Plumbing in Valparaiso, says there are some very simple things to do to help prevent that from happening, including the tried-and-true trickle with your faucets.   Hines says this really has been one of the worst winters in recent Region memory.  Hines also says homeowners need to disconnect their garden hoses before winter gets here, but he says it's not too late to do so now if you haven't already.  To hear him explain why this is important and to hear more from our interview today, visit News Audio on Demand here at our website.
