Hot Water Explosion, Is This Happening To Your Pipes?

When boiling hot water is thrown into very cold air it causes the water to quickly freeze into tiny ice crystals, and it causes a really cool effect. However, when your pipes freeze and explode it is not cool, as a matter of fact it is down right destructive. Frozen pipes expand until they can not expand anymore and then they break, once this happens it allows water to flow into your home or business.
