- Low risk for pipe freeze: main concern for exposed pipes, empty homes, pipes in attics, older homes
- Moderate risk for pipe freeze: take precaution to prevent pipe freeze even with insulated pipes and especially older homes and well houses
- High risk for pipe freeze: insulated and buried pipes could be at risk of freezing, newer homes are at risk
The Pipe Freeze Model data can be optimized to meet your needs.
- Water service was disrupted for more than 12 million people across the state of Texas due to pipes freezing and bursting.
- More than 200,000 people in Texas lived in areas where water systems were completely non-operational in some cases, for days.
- Austin, specifically, lost more than 325 million U.S. gallons of water due to burst pipes.
The result of the water crisis also caused many fire hydrants to be unusable in emergency situations. Additionally, throughout the state pipes bursting due to freezing caused such severe damage to plumbing that structures were damaged by water and streets were flooded.
