Frozen Pipes – What causes pipes to freeze & how do you unfreeze
When water freezes in a pipe it expands and can exert pressure at over 2,000 pounds per square inch. When that happens there is nowhere for the water to expand, causing the pipes to burst. If you notice your pipes have frozen, open all cabinets under sinks, turn all faucets to a light stream, remove the aerators off the faucets, and turn your heater up a degree or two.
