Cold Weather Considerations

Due to the current prediction of colder than normal temps through the coming weekend, the LAC Public Works Department is advising all members to pay particular attention to the possibility of frozen plumbing pipes and water service lines.  Here are some steps you can take to prevent this from occurring:

  •        Hook a hose to your outside faucet and run a steady trickle of water (about a 1/4″ to 3/8″ stream) away from your house and driveway.  This will prevent your service line and plumbing from freezing.
  •        Keep your basement areas heated.
  •        Move any items or storage containers that may be blocking the heat from getting to the plumbing.
  •        Run a trickle of water through plumbing that runs through any unheated areas.
  •        Make sure that all forced hot water heat thermostats are on and set to at least 55 degrees.

If you do discover you have no water flow (such as first thing in the morning), immediately turn on the cold water tap in your bathtub and leave it on until the water starts flowing.  Many times we have found that the plumbing or service line has just “caught” and by having a draw from an open tap will cause the water to push through the just frozen lines and free up the ice blockage.  If you do get frozen pipes in your basement or unheated area, you can try carefully heating the frozen pipes with a hair drier or other non-flame device.

The key to preventing freeze ups is: Keep that water moving!
