How Can I Tell If My Toilet Needs to Be Replaced?

How can I keep my pipes from freezing?
Pipes are in danger of freezing anytime the temperature dips below 32 degrees. If your home isn’t properly heated, or if there is an issue with your plumbing, extreme cold can cause the water in your pipes to freeze. Frozen water expands into ice, which can cause your pipes to burst. Before any really cold weather, be sure to drain all the outside valves. After that, you should close the interior valve leading into your home. It’s also a good idea to install a faucet insulator.
