on as normal or whether they face the chore of cleaning up when a frozen burst pipe sends water cascading into their house Homeowners can avoid frozen pipes by having adequate insula tion where pipes run along out side walls floors and ceilings They can disconnect outside gar den hoses wrap exposed pipes with insulating sleeves or tape and seal foundation cracks that let arctic air freeze pipes in crawl spaces A couple of simple tasks that might take homeowners only about two minutes can help pro tect pipes and homes when a severe freeze is predicted Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to piping under sinks vanities near exterior walls Run a small trickle of water at vulnerable cold and hot faucets The destructive power of an open water pipe should not be underestimated State Farm claim records show damage into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in some homes that fall prey to a single frozen broken pipe A oneeighthinch 3 millimeters split in a pipe can spray more than 250 gallons 946 liters of water a day For information on avoiding the preventable disaster of frozen pipes contact State Farm Public Affairs or see the web site at Mini Storage Covered RV Storage 452 FM
