Default Panic at Home Depot before the cold front

Holy cow , people where going crazy at HD , grabbing every heat bulb , pipe instillation, rolls of red and blue PEX , arguing, stealing/ commandeering others carts , I asked what was going on and some calm guy said ď someone said something about pipes exploding because of the cold front ď I guess these new folks from California are taking the exploding pipe thing literally
I got my zip ties and tried to help some people who were going crazy waiting to find out what isle some stuff was on . For some reason the HD staff was pushing
Cheap gray duct tape ( it was displayed everywhere and people were snapping it up like crazy) wife asked me ď why arenít you buying pipe and duct tape and heat lamp bulbsĒ and ď do pipes really explode In cold weather ď this stuff is was to weird to explain
I got home and rechecked the well house pipes and rechecked the water trough instillation ď it would probably be a busy day for Plummerís cashing in ď

Yep I am more worried about people panicking at HEB so I can make some chili and cornbread

Still scratching my head about HD really pushing DUCT TAPE for cold weather preparation

I’m seeing the forecast as a low of 26 Tuesday night, while it is below freezing, not sure it’s really “pipe busting weather”. Guess I’ll go wrap a few faucet, just in case.

It was 24* here a few days ago, and no pipes busted. It’s supposed to be 14* at my place in OK, but the water is turned off, pipes drained, and the heater is set at 55*. I think we’ll make through one night.

Good question?? But people were stocking up on it , I thought pex was kinda freeze tolerant? I would have thought PVC and fittings, glue, primer not pex rolls

I do nothing, & never once have, for 1 night of freezing weather. Never had a problem. If it'll be below freezing for 24+ hours straight, I'll drip some faucets. I've never even owned hose bib covers.
Why do people act like the ground, that'll melt any freezing precipitation on contact, will destroy their home? It takes days of below freezing weather to get the earth to freezing.
I just don't get it.

let one snowflake fall and it'll be pandemonium. people panicking over a few hour dip in temperature is quite entertaining though. I've been though the freeze of '83 in North Dakota without any shrapnel damage.

Faucet bibs covered, irrigation system backflow preventer/piping rewrapped and drained. No panic here....just proper annual preparation in the DFW area after 20 years at this house here and having to fix a couple of things though the years that involved....yup you guessed it cracked piping/fittings that supposedly never happens...LOL. I'd rather take 30 minutes out of my day to do that than spend what it cost me in plumbing repair in the past..... a couple of fronts that lingered surprised me.


Hopefully our ranch house piping at the lease comes out unscathed as well....compression fittings and steel pipe under a pier and beam does not like temps under 25 degrees with a good north wind..

Yep, when I lived in Iowa I never dripped faucets, put on faucet covers or any of that stuff. -30 with wind chill and still never had an issue. I do zero winterizing here in Texas. Just isn't cold enough, long enough. Unless they use inferior parts here in Texas I don't plan to ever winterize here.

I manage several properties and I used to run around like a chicken with my head cut off covering spigots. If theyre gonna freeze theyre gonna freeze...especially if theyre surrounded by stone. The latent heat is zapped out of the stone and subsequently sucked out of the piping....and they will freeze regardless if covered or not.

The main thing...dont open spigots if theyre frozen. If theyre frozen...and they get opened...air gets in...theyve got to be kept open to allow the water to unfreeze and the air to be pushed out.

Pipes bust on the thaw...not on the freeze. The trapped air heats up faster than the ice water...everything expands...air compresses...water doesnt compress....until a fitting gives way...boom...pipe bomb.

Just my experience. Keep the house above 60, open cabinets and trickle water on interior faucets on exterior walls...all will be good.

Yep live in this house 52 years and my grandparents and then wife and I never had any “ pipe explosion problems even in 1983 and 1989 “ only do minimal stuff like turn the light on in the well house, some hose bib covers ( but do have a duel water shut off 1. For Main house 2. For barn and garden, garage
But our area is now full of Californians immigrants seeking a better life, rich and clueless , inexperienced in even minor cold weather, so even a lite drizzle causes major traffic problems big difference between a Iowa yankee and Southern California idiots , in cold weather knowledge

Do you have pier and beam? For the 43 years of my life, none of my family has done anything for winterizing in N. Texas and there’s been not 1 single incident due to cold weather. This encompasses my entire family since I was born.
Weird you’ve had several incidents in one home in half that time.

My home is not P&B is it slab. Had it built in 1999. ....Like I said above most of mine comes from my irrigation system and especially the backflow systems that is required. It sits right up against my house on the south side. I just had my third BF replaced June of this year when I fired it back up even after draining/wrapping it in Nov of 2018. I also lost a hose bib in Dec 2005. I think it got down to 15 with wind chills even lower that day. After, that I don't take any chances for 30 minutes of work. First big cold front comes in and I cover it all up the day a before....calmly with no panic from stuff in my shop.. Covers don't come off until spring or I need them and I put them back on.

My lease ranch house has pier and beam and we deal with pipe issues every year.....cracked steel pipes, Y's and popped compression/connection fittings... It can be a real PITA...not to mention the pipes freezing while we are there making them unusable.

On the duct tape for cold weather instances. When I was a kid and before we had any of the foam hydrant covers, it was my job to take a few towels and wrap the faucet with the towels and then wrap that in duct tape so it would stay. Back then that was our main use for duct tape.

Yep rags or rolls of fiberglass insulation on outside pipes
Wish we would have had foam pipe insulation as the goats would break into the yard and eat the fiberglass Stuff and die

Need to cover everything. Think boats, auto even the windsield wiper fluid. Retired but part time retire job at major home improve store one customer needing repairs due to a freeze was the General MGR. I worked in Plumbing. Texas can get harsh cold. Even the stuff underground if long enough low temps. No emergency. Just be wise and protect. People seem to think it is not a threat. I have seen pipes bust in insulated walls on the north side in unheated space. Cover up. Better safe than sorry.
