COLD WEATHER

If you will be out of town for any extended period during the winter months and would like to have your water service turned off in case of a freeze, please contact City Hall at 541-745-5507.  We will work with you and turn off the water to help protect your home.

Many of the homes in the two loops have water pipes running through the attic and they are often not insulated.  It is worth your time and money to have a professional look at your system in your attic and make sure the pipes are insulated.

With winter comes the threat of damage to your home from snow, ice and freezing. Did you know that homeowners file five times as many claims for damage due to burst pipes than claims for fire damage? Protect your pipes with these tips.

Turn on the taps

Let the water drip in extreme cold. Even if the water does freeze, this will relieve some of the water pressure and keep the pipe from bursting.

Open cabinets

Leave the cabinets open under your kitchen and bathroom sinks. This keeps warm air circulating around your pipes.

Wrap the pipes

If your pipes are in areas that don’t get warm air, consider insulating them with insulation sleeves or wrapping. You can get foam rubber or fiberglass sleeves at your local hardware store, or call a plumber to do it for you.

Seal the gaps

Cracks in your home’s outside walls or foundation should be caulked to keep cold air away from your pipes.

Drain your pipes

If you’re taking a trip in the winter, consider draining your pipes to prevent them from bursting. Shut off the main valve and then turn on all the taps (hot and cold) and let the water run until the pipes are emptied.
