How frozen pipes break in Chetek
The Northern Wisconsin area can be a beautiful landscape this time of year. But also comes with that frigid temperatures. This morning on December 18th, 2019 it was a whopping -18. Yes, you read that correctly I said 18 below 0 Fahrenheit! I also believe it was colder but that was when I decided to wonder out to work at 8am! This is a high risk time for frozen pipes. A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but typically the rupture is caused by the backflow pressure between the water source and the blockage. A burst pipe can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly.
