Are Your Pipes Ready For Winter?

National company Seven Trent Water are today asking residents across the UK if there properties pipe-works are ready to face the cold snap.

As temperatures have dropped over the last week, the company are preparing to tackle bursts and leaks which are a more common occurrence at this time of year.

However the company are kindly reminding customers that it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain pipework, and not that of Seven Trent.

Spokesman Peter Edney said “I think a lot of customers assume that Seven Trent Water look after all the pipes, we only look after pipes in the highway so any pipes inside customers homes, it’s the responsibility of themselves”

“The best thing to do is protect your pipes from freezing and the best way to do that is to lag them, you can pop down to your local DIY store and easily find the material to do that – it only takes a couple of minutes really – you’ll find on our website a really handy video which shows you how to do that”

“We’ve seen in recent weeks the temperatures have really dropped a lot and when the ground freezes, it can cause our pipes to contract sometimes and that’s when we see bursts happen.”
