I reckon I knew it anyways. even before it thawed. The water pipe going to the washer is the one that busted. Around 3 pm I went outside to clean the vacuum out and I heard it and then seen it, water rushing down the hill. I yelled back in the house to tony that its busted in the laundry room. He came out and looked under the house and he actually seen the pipe that was busted. We drove out to the water meter and turned it off. Tony was sick today so tomorrow after work I will buy the parts needed and it`ll be fixed Tuesday morning, if its Gods will. BUT I did manage to get that closet cleaned!

Well done on getting the closet cleaned. And how fortunate if you are able to fix the pipe yourself. I'm glad it didn't flood the house.

Another advantage of a basement.....at least if they need to be repaired you don't have to climb under the house to do it. Good luck.

True but I never had one to freeze and bust when I had a basement.

@andriaperry Well, that's because homes with basements very seldom have a pipe inside freeze.

I hope it did not damage anything too bad. I tell you I don't want to ver have a house. All the problems that happen you just need to always have money for them.

It's been a long time since we've had a frozen pipe. On Christmas Eve the drainpipe under the kitchen sink separated. My daughter an I managed to repair it by ourselves and had the mess cleared and cleaned before my husband came home for lunch. He was impressed with our work. Good luck wit the repair work. Hopefully it's easily accessed.
