Protect your pipes
Insulating your pipes is the best way to prevent frozen or burst pipes. We recommend covering your pipes with a foam tube called lagging which is used to wrap around pipes. It can be purchased cheaply from most DIY stores and is very easy to install.
Making sure pipes inside and out are protected especially your outside ones as they are exposed to the elements making them vulnerable in the colder months. As well as lagging you should remove any hosepipe attachments and, switch off the valve that’s attached to the tap to prevent damage in the freezing weather.
Don’t forget to insulate pipework and water tanks in the loft – leaving the loft hatch open will allow the heat from your home to circulate up into the loft.
