If there is any water in your exposed pipes, it will freeze when the outside temperatures drop and stay below freezing, as the temperatures have this week. When water freezes it expands, and that can cause your pipes to burst. If that happens to you, be sure to turn off the water supply immediately at the main shutoff valve. Then release any pressure in the pipes by turning on your cold water taps and letting all the trapped water drain out of them. There may also be some steam that escapes from the pipes, so don’t worry if you see that. It’s normal.
After you have completed these emergency first steps, call us at 610-593-5129 so we can repair or replace the damaged section of pipe.
