Although it is certainly best to be sure your homes plumbing is shored up during the late summer or fall when you may be less uncomfortable when managing pipes or water in more temperate weather.

The one dire accident in your home that scares any home owner who understands the extent of damage, and replacement cost associated with this issue.
