prevent well from freezing this winter

Do you know how to winterize your well?

Question: I’m on a well. How do I prevent my well from freezing?

Answer: First you need to know the details of your well. The depth, water level along with other important information can be found on a tag that is located on the well pipe. Measure your exposed pipes around the well; that way when you insulate them, the insulation fits. You can insulate your pipes with towels or old sweaters using heat tape to hold it in place. You can also buy a heat lamp and put it in the well or buy foam pipe insulation.
