Avoid Frozen Water Woes
January 23rd 2014
Due to the unusually long periods of cold weather over the winter, we have been experiencing a high volume of calls for freezing water and sewer lines.
We are asking for your assistance to please check the following:
1. Does you home have heat trace or a transformer for the water line?
2. Is your heat trace plugged in and is the breaker on?
3. If you have a transformer, has it ever been fully checked for functionality:
a) Is it hooked up properly?
b) Is it running on FULL amperage?
c) No visible rust or corrosion exists?
If you have answered "NO" to any of these questions, your home could be at risk. Please consult with an electrician to ensure proper functionality.
