Avoid frozen pipes

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Scot­tish Wa­ter urged house­hold­ers and busi­nesses in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang to fol­low its sim­ple win­ter code to pro­tect their pipes and keep the wa­ter cy­cle run­ning smoothly dur­ing any cold weather over the fes­tive pe­riod.

The win­ter cam­paign rec­om­mends a three-point guide to avoid the mis­ery, in­con­ve­nience and cost of fail­ing to take pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures to avoid burst pipes caused by freez­ing con­di­tions.

The Scot­tish Wa­ter Win­ter Code advises any­one with a home, hol­i­day home or busi­ness premises to take ac­tion to heat , in­su­late and pro­tect their prop­er­ties.

Chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Peter Far­rer said: “Any­one who has re­turned to their house or work to find ev­ery­thing an­kle- deep in freez­ing wa­ter, with car­pets, fur­ni­ture and equip­ment all ru­ined, will know only too well the mis­ery a burst pipe in win­ter can cause.

“But by tak­ing ac­tion to heat, in­su­late and pro­tect prop­er­ties, cus­tomers can avoid the con­sid­er­able headache and heartache caused by burst pipes.

“Cus­tomers should visit www. scot­tish­wa­ter. co. uk/ win­ter, where they can find win­ter in­for­ma­tion, films and ad­vice.”
