There won't be any water coming out of the faucets.

You may also hear water running, if your pipes run in a crawl space beneath the house. Most of the pipes I have worked on involve an outside faucet that someone forgot to turn off, before the cold season. The water pressure may be reduced; a test... turn off all water faucets and go to your water meter, see if it is still moving this will indicate that you have a leak somewhere.

If the pipes are filled with water, they are more likely to crack. The reason for this is because the water expands when frozen, cracking the pipes.

When they freeze you wont get any water out of them, and then when they thaw water will be all over the place.

Water expands when frozen, Metal contracts when frozen, somethings gotta give.

If you can get to the pipes, try pointing an electric hair dryer at them.

I unfreeze them with a propane blowtorch.

If pipes are frozen no water can flow, so water meter shouldn't be registering anything. But if pipes are frozen it's a good idea to turn the water off at the inlet. That way you have a chance to discover and leaks and damages when the pipes thaw w/o getting the whole place flooded.

depends on what type of piping you are talking about. Are you talking about frozen pipes bursting or High temps??

Pressure has nothing to do with pipes freezing. It is just exposure to cold.

That be called a "plumber" male and female

Depending on the location of the frozen pipes, you might erect a barrier around the pipes and use a space heater to warm the area. Stay in the area, watch to make sure you don't start a fire and that the pipes don't leak when they thaw. If the pipes are outside your house install some heat tape, it will prevent them from freezing again. If the pipes are outside, the best solution is to put them deeper into the ground (natural and good insulation).

you have to look at poo in pipes and then you have to get it out and i hated it so i quit frozen pipes and peee peee popsicles

it depends on how good the pluming is.

Ice wouldn't float. Pipes would not be in danger of bursting in winter.

Yes, copper pipes can burst when the water inside them freeze. This is because, when the water freezes, it expands with a considerable amount of force, against the pipe, bursting it.

Yes, water does expand when it is frozen. That is why so many water pipes bust during the winter

One can prevent pipes from freezing during cold temperatures by ensuring water runs through them. A good idea to do this is to let the tap drip. Draining the water system when going on vacation during cold spells can help pipes from freezing as well.

I have worked on wells for years and never found any well frozen ( I live in Canada and it does get very cold here). You are possibly referring to well water that has been pumped to the surface and is in pipes or a tank. We keep all well pipes under ground at least 18 inches and insulate the pipes when they come above ground level. This is essential in any area that drops below '0' at all.

It would burn out the pump motor after a while. I don't recommend doing it.

The pipers I know take apart their bag pipes and keep them in a bag made for it.

it isn't frosty and it is slightly squishy...........and it isn't frozen
