HOME WINTERIZATION

Winterization, i.e., shutting off the water to your house, is extremely vital, as this area of Washington State can get very cold, and has a frostline of perhaps eighteen inches or more. This is a recipe for pipes to freeze and break. 

Every year someone's property experiences some sort of leak due to burst pipes, in-house and/or outside, which is entirely avoidable if the property is winterized.

The video to the right is a real example of a severe outdoor residential leak, discovered by the water manager, in Sun Cove, in January of 2018.

Simply shutting off the water at the meter or at the shutoff within your own house could potentially save you thousands of dollars.
