NI Water is appealing for property owners to be extra vigilant and secure buildings in advance of the weekend when the temperatures are set to rise. 

This may cause frozen pipes to thaw and burst.



There are lots of simple things to do to secure your property such as leaving the heating on low if the building is going to close for a few days.

Property owners should also check the building over the weekend and find your property’s stop valve and make sure you can turn it off – in large buildings there may be more than one, make sure they are all working and can be turned off if needed.



In addition, NI Water suggests you wrap up pipes and water tanks with lagging and fix dripping taps – even a small trickle can result in a frozen pipe.
