This is probably one of the costliest risks that can happen to your plumbing system anytime the weather forecast is predicting freezing temperatures… ruptured pipes. Plastic and metal pipes can burst when the water inside is tapped and freezes. The frozen water then expands putting pressure on the pipe causing it to expand and more than likely burst. So, what do you do when this happens? Here are a few things to try:
Frozen pipes aren’t just an issue for homeowners. Water main breaks and frozen water meters occur often during the winter months too. It’s a good idea to keep three days’ worth of water on hand during the winter months.
