JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Without the insulating property of snow many in the valley have experienced some frozen water pipe issues this winter. Thankfully, temps haven’t plummeted too low this winter but still, without an adequate coverage of snow on the ground around the house, homeowners might be in danger of making that expensive call to a plumber.
The Town of Jackson sent along a few handy tips that may prove useful: Each year the Town of Jackson Public Works Department receives many calls concerning frozen water pipes. Frozen water pipes can result in costly damages and disrupted lives.
An eighth-inch crack in a pipe can spew up to 250 gallons of water a day, wrecking floors, furniture and keepsakes. Both plastic (PVC) and copper pipes may burst.
