Freezing Pipes

While it may be a rare occurrence in most of Devon for a pipe to freeze, it can happen. The first indication of a pipe freezing is often that the tap it feeds won't work. It's a good idea during very cold weather to check all of your taps each morning before it can thaw.

Stop the water supply at the nearest stop valve (either inside your home or at the main if needed), drain the pipe from the other end by opening any taps. Check the pipe carefully to see if it is split, if it hasn't you can gently thaw it out by warming it (with hot water bottles, not a blow torch), start with the end closest to the tap. If the pipe has split, contact us right away. If you're not sure, assume it is has split.
