Its official – its cold –
If you suspect one of your pipes has frozen –
Don’t take any chances if you turn on a faucet and no water flows out of the tap.Call a plumber. In Austin call 551-0789.
If instead you have a pipe that actually bursts, turn the water at the main shut-off valve (usually at the water meter or where the main line enters the house); leave the faucet(s) open until repairs are completed.
Under no circumstances should you try to thaw a frozen pipe with an open flame like a blow torcher. Not only is this more likely to cause damage to your pipe you may even start a building fire.
