Winterizing Meter Pits

Winter weather is just around the corner and now is the time to give some thought to preventing frozen pipes.

Cover the meter pit with some type of covering such as straw bales or bags of mulch.

Pipes most at risk for freezing include:  Exposed pipes in unheated areas of the home; pipes located in exterior walls and any plumbing on the exterior of the home.

Installing inexpensive foam pipe insulation is usually enough for moderately cold climates.
