What is a frozen waterfall?
Quite literally a waterfall of frozen ice water. If the weather was warmer, the location would be a free flowing waterfall. Due to the cold climate what you end up with is a large area of frozen water which due to changing temps and/or sun exposure keeps partially unfreezing, dripping a little and than re-freezing, creating a cascade of ice.
Why do fish live through cold winters even when the ponds are frozen over?
How long does it take for pipes to freeze?
Although I am unsure of the exact time it takes for pipes to freeze, due to a variety of possible temps., pipes, water temp, etc., I know on a day that is far below freezing you should leave the water in your faucets running a small amount to avoid freeze. ANS 2 - If you are in any danger of pipes being frozen, there are now many ways to avoid this. Insulation around exposed or unprotected pipes is the easiest if you can get at all the pipes. In my area pipes freeze often. -I protect against this by extensive use of electrical 'heat tape' . I live in a mobile home and have a 3 ft high crawlspace, so I wrapped 'heat tape' all around my incoming water pipe. This tape carries a thermostat, and comes on at 1 degree C, giving a very small amount of heat to the pipe, keeping it from freezing. These tapes are available in all plumbing stores and most big box stores including HD. -Cost is about a dollar per foot. -Well worth it !

Asked in Home Improvement, Plumbing
Does plumbing under hand sink need to be wrapped?
You haven't provided enought detail. The answer is maybe. If the sink is indoors and the pipes are in a well insulated portion of the building structure, then probably not. If the pipes are in an exterior wall or in an uninsulated space and the outside air temps go below freezing in the winter, then it's probably a good idea. They'll also be quieter if you wrap them.
