Batesmotel Posted March 2, 2021 Share Posted March 2, 2021 We are hearing from friends in Texas about the burst pipes. I’m not talking about apartments, condominiums or other commercial buildings where the residents don’t have access to the main water shutoff valves. Im talking about privately owned, single family houses. When the pipes burst and water is flooding in under pressure, not just trickling in from a pipe but under full force. Instead of catching water in every container imaginable and trying to sweep it out the doors, why didn’t more people just turn off the main at the house or at the street. I realize that some main valves in the houses were frozen and burst but not many. Most were fine and the breaks were in attics and exterior walls. Very few street shut off valves froze. It looks like there might be issues with insurance if the owners did not shut off the water coming in. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
