Dear Lisa,

One weird place to freeze is the condensate drain of the heater. Since it is encased in cement, I am not quite sure what to do about it.

The number one thing people can do is disconnect any garden hoses that may still be connected. People up north know this, but sometimes people that live in fringe areas forget to disconnect their hoses. The water in the hose will back up into the faucet and freeze causing pipes to burst when they thaw.

At -28 and -50+ it is almost to late to worry about frozen pipes.  This cold spell as been talked about for a week

Morning Lisa.

Good to have you back, I've had our outside faucets covered for about a month now.  While it gets cold here, it's nothing compared to what the people north of me are going to experience.

We are having a wild winter aren't we Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR ?!!  But I am glad that I am not with my buddy Wayne Martin in Chicago right now!

You are such a dear friend Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP and we need to get together for lunch soon!

I am not familiar with that feature Dörte Engel is it indoors with no exposed piping?

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 9 months ago

Very true Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 always remove those water hoses from the spigot(s)!

John Pusa Thank you, some areas of the country don't typically need this advice...but we are having a wild winter!

 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 9 months ago

You are really getting hit with a hard winter William Feela and I would hope that no one has forgotten these precautions.  Here in Dallas we don't typically need to worry about freezing pipes...but we are now!

Hello James Dray Thank you, it's good to be back with my friends here in the Rain.  

And, like you, we've had the winter precautions in place for awhile!

 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 9 months ago

An excellent post, Lisa, with the freezing weather that's hitting so much of the country. 

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 9 months ago

Good morning Lisa. This is important and a great time to share. Stay warm.

Good morning Lisa - it is cold here but not as cold as other areas.  Fortunately, it does not last.

Lisa Von Domek - Ready or not, let's meet for lunch. 

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 9 months ago

Welll winter is certainly here with brute force. Construction with plumbing on outside walls that are not well insulated spells trouble.
