What to Do if You Have a Frozen Pipe

• Locate and close the main water shutoff valve as soon as possible and before temperatures rise above freezing.

• Inspect pipes for damage, including those in attics and crawl spaces, where it is safe to do so.

• As temperatures increase above freezing, watch and listen for signs of water leaks.

• If a pipe is leaking, do not turn on the water. Open all faucets including those outside to drain remaining water from pipes and call a licensed plumber for repairs.

• If no leaks are detected, turn water back on slowly. Continue to check for leaks before turning water on completely.

• Never use torches or heat guns to facilitate thawing as these can create fire hazards.
