PRO PLUMBING TIP
Frozen Pipes? Shut off the water. When the weather turns extremely cold, water supply pipes are prone to freezing and bursting. Shutting off the water main leading into the structure, and opening any faucets connected to the pipe, will help reduce pressure on the frozen pipes and minimize flooding.

PRO POOL TIP
Keep your pumps running during a hard freeze. These days, most new pool equipment has built in freeze protection that kicks your pump on when the outside temperature reaches a certain low. If you’re equipment is lower, make sure you run your pumps 100% of the time during freezing temperatures. Moving water is hard to freeze. This will help protect your equipment from freeze damage.
