WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – As record cold temperatures make their way into our area, keep your pipes in mind.
The expansion of frozen water can put tremendous stress on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes.
Usually the pipes that freeze are exposed to severe cold weather, like outdoor hose bibs or water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like garages or kitchen cabinets.
