I live in Detroit. There I admitted it. In any event, it is not as bad you all may think. Actually, we recently got a new mayor. And city services are actually improving, if only ever so slightly.
Anyways, I worry about frozen water mains. It happens every so often. And in a city that is bankrupt, sometimes they can’t fix 'em right away, naturally. But I was thinking. If I flushed my toilet, say, every hour or so, would that keep the water circulating so the main doesn’t freeze?
I do keep somewhat later hours probably than my neighbors. I am up at 3, 4, and 5 am. And that probably is the coldest time anyways (in the winter, of course).
Actually, so far I have not decided to do this. I can’t help but recall past events when I assumed some (mechanical) process I believed was correct, only to find I was mistaken. So I will first ask all of you on the SDMB.
