City Of Dillon PSA Frozen Pipes

Public Service Announcement



With more cold weather predicted, the City of Dillon would like to remind

homeowners to take measures to prevent their pipes from freezing. Here are

several tips: (1) allow a small trickle of water from your cold water faucet in your

kitchen to run to keep pipes from freezing. The cost of the extra water is low

compared to the cost to repair a broken pipe; (2) keep garage doors closed if

there are water supply lines in the garage; (3) open kitchen and bathroom

cabinets to allow warmer air circulation around the plumbing and also remember

to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals out of reach of children;

(4) If you will be going away during the cold weather, leave the heat on in your

home, set to a temperature no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.



Last winter was an unusual winter with so many service lines freezing throughout

the community. The City of Dillon recommends to citizens to keep a small trickle

running as a preventative measure to keep their service lines from freezing. If you

have had problems in the past we encourage you to run a small trickle of water

from your cold water faucet in your kitchen. This of course is at the customers

discretion, as the cost of running water is at their expense.
