Nope. In thirty years I think I’ve fixed less than a dozen. Got heat stroke more times than I’ve fixed frozen pipes, probably.

I have a buddy out here in Phoenix that has a place in New York, up near Buffalo. They go for the spring and summer and come here for the winter. He was complaining about how expensive everything was and I said “at least you can turn utilities off there when you’re here.” He laughed and explained he had to keep the utilities on just like you were living there or the weather would screw you. I’m sure you could winterize a house, but don’t know anything about that.

This cold snap has been crazy busy in the Midwest.
first Job of the day I turned the homeowners walls into Swiss cheese tracking down 12 total breaks in copper water lines.
How’s everybody else fairing out there?

Damn did they have a furnace go down or stupid placement of pipes? Most of mine have been 1-3 breaks, move on to the next one.

Soldering if not possible compressing coupling
No propress?

I keep at least a dozen 1/2" slip propress couplings on the van in winter.

Dont feel bad bill. I have another gas company coming over to look at replacing our front door lights with gas lanterns. I just dont have the time, and my employees arent allowed at the house.
