How do you prevent frozen water pipes?

If you have water pipes that are exposed to temperatures of 0 degrees celsius or less, such as exterior hose bibs in the winter, you should turn the water off to those faucets and then open the faucets to drain any water.

To help prevent pipes from freezing you can wrap them in insulation. There are numerous pipe insulation products available. Visit your your local hardware store to learn more.
