Thread: A cold Moderator is going to be an unhappy one!!!

  1. #1

    A cold Moderator is going to be an unhappy one!!!

    I have service people coming, but they can't get here for another 5 or 6 hours!!!

    My furnace is completley off (Lennox elite series 4 years old) -20 outside,

    I have my wood burning fireplace going and base board heaters in the kitchen and bathroom.

    Anything else I can do? I am worried about my plumbing.

    Keep a tap running. Running water won't freeze.

    Turn on all the water taps

    To help keep the water in your pipes from freezing turn on all of the water taps. It isn't neessary to turn them wide open, not even half way. About a quarter way ought to do it. Best of luck!

    run a slow stream of hot and cold water in any tap that has its supply lines running along an outside wall and then there's no chance of them freezing up.....taps with interior supply lines don't worry about

    Actually, fools differ frequently. There's lots of threads here that prove it.
