With frigid winter temperatures in Chicago land and the surrounding areas, frozen pipe burst in residential and commercial buildings are not an uncommon occurrence. No matter how strong a water pipe is expanding water can build up pressure and cause the pipe to burst. While frozen pipe burst are often seen in outdoor hose bibs and water sprinkler and swimming pool supply lines, interior water supply pipes in unheated or poorly insulated areas such as basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages, and even kitchen and bathroom cabinets, tubs, and showers are also susceptible to freezing. Pipes that run along exterior walls that have little or no insulation can also freeze and burst when temperatures plummet.
