Kansas City, MO - As temperatures continue to stay well below freezing across the KC Metro, it's a good time to see to your home's water pipes.

If you have water pipes in places that might be exposed to the cold such as exterior walls, crawl spaces, garages or other unheated areas of your home, it is recommend you let water drip from a faucet that's directly connected to those pipes to prevent them from freezing and possibly bursting.

If you have a warm and cold water tap, be sure to turn them both on, to allow water to flow through both the cold and warm water pipes.

Also, put on the coat and check your exterior water connections. Disconnect any garden hoses,  as they are a common cause of frozen or broken water pipes.
