Why Do Pipes Freeze and Burst?


Plumbing pipes can generally freeze when pipes are exposed to below freezing temperatures for extended periods of time.  Waterlines should not be installed in exterior walls and unheated areas such as attics.

What Are The Problems Caused By Frozen Pipes?


Frozen pipes will expand and can burst the walls of the piping.  Copper tubing is especially susceptible to damage.  You will have an emergency when it thaws.  The ice will melt and water will damage your property.  Don't let that happen.  Call Bill Helmken Plumbing LLC 412-897-4210.
