Freezing Pipes - Prevention

When a pipe freezes, moisture or water standing in the pipes creates a blockage as additional water backs up in the pipe.  Water expands as it freezes and places additional pressure on your pipes while it is expanding, potentially cracking or breaking pipes. When the frozen water returns to its liquid state, the water begins leaking out of cracks and breaks. Sometimes the crack is small but, over time, it can cause as much damage as a gushing leak.  Often times, these pipes are located inside walls or under your house.  They are always costly fixes, sometimes costing tens of thousands of dollars.  Click here to learn more about preventing freezing pipes.
