Freeze/Thaw advice from Southern Water as temperatures freeze then thaw – sometimes rapidly – throughout this winter period and the risk of burst pipes and leaks increases:
In an emergency call Southern Water 24/7 on 0330 303 0368.
Be on alert for bursts and leaks over the winter period.
Remind yourself where the stop-cock is located should you need to turn the water off in a hurry.
Business owners are urged to turn off their water if their premises will be un-occupied over the holidays. For more tips on how to prepare for cold weather, visit: Retailer useful information (southernwater.co.uk).
