【Be careful of freezing!! Winter preparation for water pipes】

If the temperature drops below -4 ° C (-1 to 2 ° C in a windy place), the water in the water pipes may freeze or the water pipes may be damaged. Protect the water pipes that are exposed outdoors, which are prone to freezing, from the cold.
●How to protect against the cold
Wrap a commercially available heat insulating material or cloth around the water pipe. For water heaters installed outdoors, check the instruction manual for how to protect against the cold.
●When water pipe freezes
Cover the frozen water pipe with a towel, etc., and slowly pour lukewarm water over it to melt it. (Hot water may cause the water pipe to burst)
●When water pipe bursts
Close the valve next to the meter and request repairs from the Kure City’s designated water supply equipment installation shop (please see the city homepage for details). If you do not know where the valve is, wrap a towel or vinyl tape around the burst part to stop the water.
