Winter is coming!
No one wants to talk about winter so far in advance, however it's important to ensure that your house is ready for any cold spells that come! At Beat The Freeze we offer products and free advice on how you can keep your home warm and protected in the winter months.
Why Beat The Freeze?
During the cold weather, we often have trouble with frozen pipes. A drop in temperature can cause water in pipes to freeze, triggering a burst when it thaws. A repair is then urgently needed, bringing you expense and inconvenience at a time of year when you’d least want to face it. That is why we're encouraging everyone to prepare their homes in time for winter and Beat The Freeze!

We currently have lagging kits that are specially designed to protect your pipes from the cold weather. As a South Staffs Water customer you are eligible to claim one of these kits for free! You have the choice of either claiming a tap jacket, a 2 metre length of pipe lagging or both!

How to lag your pipes
This short video produced by 'Affinity Water' shows how quick and easy it is to avoid costly repair bills by lagging your pipework. The video shows step by step how to lag outside pipes using the tubular style pipe lagging. In the video 15mm x 13mm lagging is used, and this would be suitable in a large number of cases. An outside tap cover is also shown being fitted.
