Guernsey warning to wrap up pipes in cold

Published

Guernsey Water is advising islanders to wrap up indoor and outdoor pipes as the winter approaches.

To prevent serious flooding when the temperature drops, islanders are being advised to turn off the internal stop tap when leaving home for a few days.

Outdoor water taps should be insulated with either lagging or by wrapping a towel around the pipe.

Leaving the central heating on low when away from your property for a short period has also been recommended.
