Prevent Frozen Water Pipes!

November 14, 2017 – FYI

To prevent frozen water pipes, the City and Borough of Juneau recommends the following preventative measures:

  • Leave a pencil thin trickle of water running in the sink to keep water circulating.
  • Ensure crawl space vents are closed.
  • Ensure pipes are properly insulated.
  • Ensure heat tapes are plugged in and functioning.
  • Turn off hose bibs, disconnect any hoses, and ensure they are properly insulated.

In the event that you do experience frozen pipes, contact a plumber or contractor. CBJ does not have the ability to thaw frozen water pipes.
