Taking a few precautionary steps ahead of the freezing  winter weather should be on your plumbing list.


  1. Make sure that the crawl space access cover is sealed off very well and wind tight without any cracks.
  2. Be sure to close crawl space vents around your home. If your home does not lhve closable louvers you could put some insulation in the vents and cover  the vents with boards.
  3. Remove all hoses  from outside faucets including the frost-free hose bibs.
  4. When the overnight temperatures are forecasted to freeze, leave sink cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate.
  5. Leave a small stream of hot and cold water running in 2 sinks at opposite ends of your home overnight.
  6. Go to a local Yakima, WA hardware store and purchase some over-the-pipe foam tubing insulation to wrap around your plumbing in the crawl space.

  • Turn off your water by locating  your main water shut off valve to your house or the breaker switch to your well pump to relieve any added pressure to your plumbing system until our Yakima plumbing team arrives.
  • Thermal heat tape should be checked every year to make sure it is operational. Don’t trust the light indicator alone. Unplug the tape (for safety) and immediately feel the tape physically to make sure it is warm and if so, plug it back in. Otherwise you may need to replace it. Heating tape does fail over time.
