With winter just around the corner, there's a very important job we all have to do. Get winter ready!

Sub-zero temperatures could spell disaster for your home. Cold snaps could freeze your pipes leaving you and your family without water and heat. And if they burst, you could spend your Christmas cleaning up an almighty mess, instead of enjoying turkey dinner leftovers.

That's why it's vital you get your home ready for winter. With the help of our Yorkshire Water family, the Metherall-Cooks, we've created a video to show you just how simple it is. Watch our 5-step video guide below and you'll be well on your way to getting ready for winter.
