We are urging households to ensure water pipes in lofts and gardens are properly insulated so they don’t freeze, which can lead to leaks and damage when they thaw.
That's why we are offering FREE pipe lagging and tap guards to help prepare your home for winter.*
The call to action to protect homes from freezing and bursting pipes follows recent news that our region’s water resources are low after nearly three years of lower than average rainfall prior to the wet weather starting in September of this year.
The winter months typically lead to increases in bursts from pipes freezing and thawing in homes, resulting in millions of litres of water being wasted and thousands of pounds of repair and flood damage to homes. According to data from the Association of British Insurers, a claim to repair a burst pipe costs on average £8,800 as small ruptures can release gallons of water, damaging plaster, flooring and household contents.**
Below we've outlined some steps you can take to avoid burst pipes this winter:
More information on how to lag pipes and dealing with frozen pipes can be found at: www.affinitywater.co.uk/coldweather
When looking for a plumber, it is recommended to select one that is a member of an approved contractor scheme, such as WaterSafe. Approved businesses can be found at: www.watersafe.org.uk
*Free pipe lagging and tap guards offered for Affinity Water customers only, whilst stocks last.
