COLD WEATHER  – FROZEN PIPE PREVENTION

  • Leave cupboard doors under sinks open. This allows warm air to circulate in and around the pipes.
  • In severe cold weather, open the faucets (both hot and cold, sinks and tubs) JUST SLIGHTLY and let the water drip all the time. (For obvious reasons, make sure that the drain is not plugged). This simple precaution can prevent most major pipe damage.
  • If your plumbing does freeze, contact your apartment manager immediately so that repairs can be initiated. PLEASE be patient. Our past experience is that campus maintenance staff work extremely long hours during these emergency situations in an effort to get all of campus thawed out and operating smoothly. Your patience and understanding is appreciated!
  • If cold weather occurs during the break and you are not at home, campus personnel may enter you apartment to check and open faucets.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
