Re: EXTREME freezing temperatures - What to worry about?

The biggest risk of freezing plumbing is due to air leaks.

Turning off the water is not going to help unless you are able to drain it.

For areas that are vulnerable to freezing I'd crack the hot and cold water open a little so there is a little water flowing in the pipes.

BTW it is currently - 2 F here in Southern NH.

Good luck.

It will reduce the subsequent amount of flooding if the pipe breaks.
