Winter Tips for Your Water Line in New Hope
When there’s a streak of sub-zero days during the winter, the Public Works department at the city of New Hope tends to get property owners calling about low water pressure issues. The cause is often frozen pipes which can end up causing tens of thousands of dollars of damage to a home. It happens most often in houses that have a water meter in a closet or crawl space with a closed door, so be sure to open those doors and insulate the area well. If you’re leaving for a vacation during the winter, either have someone check on your house for you or turn the valves off. Get in touch with New Hope’s Public Works department if you have other questions or would like them to come out and take a look at your meter.
