The city of Winnipeg is reminding people to keep a close watch on their indoor plumbing.
With colder weather now here, the city is recommending Winnipeggers weather-proof their homes in the following ways:
- Insulate and heat the areas of your house with water pipes
- Weather seal the windows.
- Check for any air leaks.
- Keep your garage door open if there are any pipes inside.
- Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get in around pipes.
The city says the areas most at risk are crawl spaces and basements.
