Freezing and burst pipes can occur when the temperature falls below 20* or they are exposed to wind drafts and flowing cold air from cracks in an outside wall or maybe a lack of insulation. Freezing water turns to ice within the pipe that expands and blocks the line. This blockage can create excessive pressure throughout the system causing the pipe to fail in vulnerable places—no matter if the pipe is made of plastic, copper or steel. Even a tiny crack can unleash more than 250 gallons of water in a single day and the results of a pipe bursting can cause significant property damage, high repair costs and disruption of business.
