Hints and advice on getting the best out of your plumbing, and avoiding trouble before it hits you!

THINGS TO CHECK

Make sure all your pipework in the attic is properly lagged to remove the possibility of pipes freezing
Check that your storage tank is lagged and has a proper plastic snap-fit lid.
Check that your attic insulation doesn't actually extend beneath the storage tank. This allows warmth from below to take the chill off the cold water storage tank.
If your boiler is in an exposed position, i.e. garage or outbuilding, make sure a frost stat is attached. If not, get this rectified!
Take extra care with pipes in cold weather. Open the attic door to warm the roof area
