To-Do #6:Insulate Exposed Pipes

Insulate Exposed Water Pipes

A frozen and burst pipe is a very unpleasant winter surprise, so it’s a good idea to insulate water pipes in a crawlspace to reduce the chance of freezing.

Insulating water pipes:                                                                                                                     Chose foam pipe insulation that matches the diameter of the water pipes.

 Cut the insulation to length with a box cutter or scissors.
 Open the insulation along the split edge, and fit it around the pipes.
 Tape any joints in the foam insulation together.
