We all know pipes can freeze in the winter, but it’s easy to forget about them – and before you know it, there’s a cold snap and you’re dealing with the repair bill for split pipes.
If your property’s going to be empty for a while, you can reduce the risk of this happening by turning off the stop valve inside the property and opening the tap on the outside of the property.
This releases water in the pipe and allows any remaining water space to expand if it freezes, without splitting the pipe.
