Re: EXTREME freezing temperatures - What to worry about?

Your from Canada and you don't know how to handle cold weather?

Don't shut off the water, let it run.

He's not really in Canada but New France and it's "you're" not "your".

Further his house is new at 46 years. Mine is 140 and I turn the heat right down at night at which the creaking and groaning would make for some excellent horror movie sound effects.

Yeah well I never had such problems before. First time owning a non-new house. I KNEW that the downstairs bathroom was a problem, I just didn't expect -22F to hit at the same time that my family vacated the house.

Super freezing temps

Badly insulated bathroom

Nobody home to use the water

FROZEN PIPES!

Anyway... weird, only the tap works, the toilet won't get any water yet they share the same pipe and the toilet should be before the tap.

I'll let the heater run in that bathroom overnight and leave the door open

GOOD NIGHT BRA!

Shut the door, and keep the heat in.
