Although all pipes are at-risk in extreme temperatures, some pipes are more prone to freezing because of their location in the home. Pipes most at risk for freezing include exposed pipes in unheated areas of the home, pipes located in exterior walls, and any plumbing that’s located outside the home. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls are especially vulnerable to freezing, particularly if there are cracks or openings that allow the cold air from the outside to come in contact with the pipes. If you incorporate the following tasks into your regular seasonal maintenance, you can prevent frozen garden hoses, costly pool repairs, and post-winter faucet replacements: 

Drain water from the swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines; Remove, drain, and store any hoses used outdoors; Check around the home for areas where water supply lines are located in unheated areas; Wrap insulation around any exposed pipes; and turn off the water supply to exterior faucets and drain them.

and when all else fails, Call SERVPRO.
