Frozen Water Lines and Water Meters

Winterizing your home, business, or irrigation system is an important consideration for property owners and residents of Santa Fe. Plumbing is especially susceptible to cold weather and freezing. Any exposed water piping in unheated and non-insulated spaces such as in a crawlspace, attic, or in outside walls should be insulated. September is a good time to make your winterizing plans to ensure that they are completed before the first freeze.

Below-freezing temperatures that are sustained over a few days can cause water pipes and meters to freeze. Special attention should be given when the outdoor air temperature does not rise above freezing during the day time hours. This can stop water service to your home and may be expensive to repair or replace. Property owners are responsible for protecting pipes from the meter and throughout their property.
