Burst pipes | Frequently asked questions

Burst pipes

During winter months take precautions to prevent burst pipes.  Make sure that your home is heated.  If you go away, leave the heating on, where you can, but turn the thermostat down to 10C.  If you are unable to leave heating on, make sure that your water is turned off at the stop tap and the hot water, cold water and heating systems are drained down.  Damage caused to your contents and belongings will be your responsibility.
