In Response To: Re: Water pipes & freezing (homebild)

I think we're on the same page just a different verse. While it is true that wind chill will affect the rate of temperature drop, if the temperature is above freezing, pipes will not freeze regardless of the wind chill. However, where pipes are not adequately protected from exposure to cold, wind chill can be a factor. But the bottom line is pipes should protected to the lowest expected temperature in your area. I know too well what it costs in time, labor, and expense when pipes freeze and burst. It's a whole lot cheaper to prepare than to repair.
