Cold weather protection to your home

If you are considering going away this winter (even for a short period), please consider the following options to protect your home from frost & water damage:

  • Leave your heating on low/timed or frost guard facility (if available)
  • Turn off your cold water supply at the stop tap
  • Consider lagging any exposed external pipes (outside taps)
  • Consider turning off water supply to wash houses and external toilets
  • Please consider lagging external taps. Please report any vulnerable exposed water pipes or condensate pipes to our repairs team as below.
