Protect your pipes warning

Have your say

RESIDENTS in South Yorkshire are being urged to protect their water pipes and prevent bursts this winter.

Yorkshire Water is advising customers to keep their homes heated during a cold snap.

Pipework, cisterns and tanks in unheated areas such as lofts and garages should be wrapped up with waterproof foam lagging.

Customers are also advised to get to know their stop taps so they can be turned off quickly if there is a burst.
