Plumbers are getting a lot of calls from customers who are without water because of frozen pipes. This could end up being a big problem as we move on with the week, since the cold weather isn’t going away. Bottom line: it would be REALLY nice if the temperature got above 32 degrees here in the next few hours and stay that way for a while, but we’re not sure if that will happen.
If you turn on your faucet and there’s only a trickle of water coming out, you can assume the pipe is frozen. Keep your faucets open since there’s a chance the water may thaw out the pipes. If the pipes are exposed, you can also apply heat from things like an electric heating pad or a hair dryer. NEVER apply blowtorches or anything like that to a pipe.
