Hello, my name is Rylie Safford. I was woefully unprepared to handle complications caused by owning a home in an area that frequently dropped below freezing. The pipes in my home burst open unexpectedly when the outdoor temperature dropped to nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit. When the weather warmed up, I was greeted with a severe leak under the house. I had to hire a team of plumbers to replace all of the pipes that burst at the seams. The plumbing professionals taught me how to weatherize my home for the cold season. I want to use this site to help other people understand how to protect their plumbing components from freezing weather. I will also discuss other plumbing problems that occur throughout the year. Please visit my site often to learn all you need to know.
