Let’s face it. Chicago is a beautiful place to live but it has one major drawback we all have to face each and every year – the cold. And when we say cold we’re not talking cold like most of the country experiences. No, we’re talking about polar bear cold and we’re talking about it being that way for a large chunk of the year. So how can you protect your plumbing from all that frigid cold every year and make sure it never gets the better of your home’s plumbing system? It’s not so hard if you follow some pretty straightforward recommendations each year to stay safe.
