Austin spends another day below freezing

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.

Give us a call – we’re here 24 hours and we’re not just sitting on our hands – 551-0789
