To ensure that your home is well protected from winter weather conditions, it is recommended that the following steps are taken in the cold winter season:
- Wrap all exterior piping with heat tape. This will prevent pipes from freezing and breaking when temperatures dip below freezing. (Heat tape can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes)
- If heat tape installed is already installed, inspect your heat tape to ensure it is still working and properly wrapped around piping from the ground to all exposed water lines under our home.
- Winterize exterior faucets including hose bibs.
- Ensure that skirting is secure on the home but allows for proper ventilation or air under the home.
- In the case of Frozen waterlines use only a hairdryer do NOT use any open flame item (this could cause your home to catch fire) to thaw out your frozen waterlines. When thawing out your frozen waterlines, you must turn on the cold water to your bathtub, leave this on while you thaw out your waterlines. This will allow the ice to move in the waterline and keep pressure from building up in the line while you are thawing out your waterline.
- During winter weather events, be certain to remove snow/ice buildup from around the skirting.
- Use caution when winter weather conditions include precipitation. Snow and sleet can cause dangerous conditions. Use extra caution when navigating through the community both on foot and when driving. Be certain to park in a manner that allows emergency vehicles and plow trucks sufficient space to get through the community.
- For the safety of all residents, vehicles that are improperly parked and/or impeding the ability of such vehicles to drive through the community will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Please note: Residents will be responsible for the cost of the water meter if proper heat tape installation methods are not taken.
In advance, we thank you for your cooperation and appreciate your continued residency.
