Scottish Water is encouraging customers to ensure homes and businesses across Scotland are protected and prepared for winter.

Launching its new campaign, the utility is urging communities throughout the country to follow its winter advice - protect your pipes, be prepared and heat, insulate and protect your home and business

Protect your pipes - Be prepared, is Scottish Water’s winter message. Three Highway Code-style signs will highlight the need to take measures, ensuring peace of mind ahead of extreme weather conditions.

Scottish Water’s campaign will encourage customers to protect their pipes and property. It will advise them how to help prevent a frozen or burst pipe, how to locate their stop valve, what to do in an emergency and how Scottish Water can help.

For the fourth year running, STV weather forecaster, Sean Batty is supporting Scottish Water’s winter campaign.

Sean said: “Last year many Scots were preparing for another cold winter after the extreme conditions of the previous two, however, in the end it turned out to be a much milder but stormy one.

“This highlights just how volatile our weather can be and how we need to be prepared in advance for whatever it throws in our direction.”
