WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington plumbers are warning residents about cold weather freezing pipes over the next couple of days.
The Wilmington area has already seen multiple pipe bursting incidents in both businesses and residential neighborhoods.
Chandler Mickey, a plumber with Benjamin Franklin plumbing in Wilmington, has been making plumbing repairs for burst pipes all weekend.
He had a number of tips for homeowners as the surge of winter weather fast approaches.
"Just keep an eye on things. Always know where your valves are to shut the water off. Keep water running in your house, and if you have a water heater in your house, keep a space heater in (the room)- keep it nice and warm," said Mickey.
A full list of plumbing tips from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is listed below.
