The water in your pipes can easily freeze when the temperature drops below the freezing point. This happens because the water sits in the pipeline waiting to be used as to be ready for when you turn on a tap. This freezing in and under your home can lead to the pipes bursting. The pressure that gets put on the pipes by the ice expanding causes this. The expansion of the ice often causes the bursting of pipes in older homes.
It is definitely an emergency situation if a pipe in your home has burst and there is water flowing out. A burst pipe is considered a plumbing emergency for two reasons.
