View our guides on insulating your pipes ready for the cold and advice on what to do in the case of a frozen or burst pipe:

Find your stop tap and check that it works

Your stop tap controls the flow of water into your home. It’s usually found under the kitchen sink, or sometimes in the cellar or garage. It’s handy to know where it is so you can turn the water off quickly if your pipes freeze or burst.

Found it? Make sure your stop tap is working. It's also worth checking if your household Insurance covers burst pipes.
