Preventing Water Damage
including plumbing and drain/garburator issues
Water damage can cause significant financial losses both within a unit and adjacent units, including common property areas. The heating in your unit is provided through hot water being piped through a radiant heating device along the bottom of the outside walls of the unit.
PRECAUTIONS IN WINTER
To help prevent pipes from bursting during the winter months, it is recommended that you:
WASHING MACHINE HOSE CONNECTIONS
Washing machines generally come equipped with reinforced rubber hoses for connection between the water supply lines and the machine.
DISHWASHER (water supply line and garburater)
Lines to the dishwasher are generally copper and should not require servicing
WASTE DISPOSAL GARBURATORS
FRIDGE (water supply line)
Fridges with water/ice dispensers will have a copper supply line connected to a plastic supply line into the fridge. Any water leaks should be addressed promptly to minimize damage. To shut off the water for the fridge, close the cold water valve located in the front closet.
WATER SHUT OFF VALVES
The water supply (hot and cold) to your unit can be shut off within your unit. These water control valves are located in the front closet.
