How to Stop Your Pipes from Freezing and Bursting in Cold Weather


Temperatures can drop to dangerously low levels during winter in Saskatoon, putting the pipes and plumbing in your home at risk for freezing. When water freezes and expands inside your pipes, it causes pressure to build up between the ice blockage and your closed faucet. Over time, this pressure cause your pipes to burst.

To ensure water is able to flow freely throughout your pipes in winter, consider these simple preventive measures.
