When living in Missouri you never know what your going to get. Weather changes so much in Missouri you can have all four seasons in one week. Frozen pipes are often those exposed to the cold weather, such as those outside your house, or in cold areas such as basements, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets. *A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but typically the rupture is caused by the backflow pressure between the water source and the blockage. A burst pipe can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly. **Here are some tips to prevent pipes from freezing.
*Be sure to completely drain water from the swimming pool and sprinkler lines, as well as outside hoses.
*Open kitchen cabinets to let warm air near the plumbing.
*When the weather is extremely cold, let water drip from faucets that may come from exposed pipes.
*Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night.
