Brrrr! Winter has finally arrived and the temperatures may be dropping over the next few days. If it gets below freezing, it’s a good idea to drip your faucets to prevent your pipes from freezing.
But, if the weather is 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower and you see one of these signs of a frozen pipe, call me right away:
- A faucet is not running or a toilet is not refilling
- Frost on the pipes
- Strange smells coming from a faucet or drain
If the pipe bursts, shut off the water at the main valve and cut electricity to any area where the broken pipe leaked water. Then call me.
