With the Winter storm warning for this week, we thought it would be a good idea to reshare this article from last year. 

"This winter, avoid costly plumbing repairs by properly winterizing your home before the first extended freeze of the season.

To protect your pipes from bursting, wrap exterior hose bibs and exposed pipes with insulation. When freezing temperatures are in the forecast, allow your home’s heating system to reach exposed interior pipes by leaving under-sink cabinet doors open. Set all interior faucets to a slight drip- even a small amount of flowing water can prevent pipes from completely freezing.

While uncommon in our region, prolonged periods of freezing temperatures can occur. If you plan to be away from your home for an extended period of time this winter, ensure that your house remains properly heated in your absence. Setting the heater to run at a reduced temperature and opening cabinets to encourage warm airflow around pipes can prevent expensive pipe and flooding repairs.

Now is a good time to identify and insulate any exposed pipes with the potential to freeze around your home. Remember, proper preparation reduces the likelihood of a winter weather-related emergency."
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

I saw a notice about changes in the way the free sprinkler inspection works. What exactly is changing?

As of January 1st,  the Water Resources team at Public Works implemented scheduling changes to the free sprinkler system checkup program.
  • Residential addresses with an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, and 9) as their last digit can schedule a free checkup during odd number years.
  • Residential addresses with an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, and 8) as their last digit can schedule a free checkup during even number years.

The WaterWise free sprinkler system checkup program began in 2006 with one licensed irrigator. The program is very popular with Frisco residents and saves homeowners millions of gallons of water. Learn more about free sprinkler system checkups here, or use the myFrisco app to schedule an appointment.
