Dear Lisa,

One weird place to freeze is the condensate drain of the heater. Since it is encased in cement, I am not quite sure what to do about it.

The number one thing people can do is disconnect any garden hoses that may still be connected. People up north know this, but sometimes people that live in fringe areas forget to disconnect their hoses. The water in the hose will back up into the faucet and freeze causing pipes to burst when they thaw.

Morning Lisa.

Good to have you back, I've had our outside faucets covered for about a month now.  While it gets cold here, it's nothing compared to what the people north of me are going to experience.

I am not familiar with that feature Dörte Engel is it indoors with no exposed piping?

Welll winter is certainly here with brute force. Construction with plumbing on outside walls that are not well insulated spells trouble.
