Facing a water pipe emergency? - advice from United Utilities

United Utilities are letting residents know about their Winter Wise campaign to help people prepare for bad winter weather and give them advice on what to do if their water pipes freeze or burst.

May people don’t realise that the supply pipes under their garden and in their homes belong to them, rather than us. So, in that case, when there’s a problem we can sometimes only give them advice.

They’ve been holding road shows across Lancashire handing out advice packs and goodies to encourage people to lag their pipes, find out where their stop tap is and get the number of a good reliable plumber.

They have an advice sheet which is on their website; Winter Wise webpage at
