ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) -- These sub-zero temperatures mean more than just making sure you and your family are bundled up; it also means making sure the pipes for your water have extra layers.
John Workman, owner of Workman & Sons Plumbing, says there are a few things you should do to ensure they don't freeze. Consider these ideas if your pipes are under the home, on an exterior wall, or in the elements in a crawl space:
"Especially if it's in a crawl space in a house," Workman explained about the faucet drip, "it will freeze every once in a while if it gets cold. Turn your faucet on just a little bit, just a slow drip that will stop it from freezing; it keeps that water moving."
