Freeze damage

Finding leaks can be difficult because water will always take the path of least resistance. To trouble shoot, use process of elimination, isolating different fixtures. You can bend and kink pex pipe to shut off a line. Just tape the kink so it won't un bend. Home stores sell all fittings and tool for crimping

OK,now drain the W/H,and the low point drains. Hook up a Air Compresser (20psi) to your city water fill.Now you can hear where the (Leaks) are. You are not the only Member with (Freeze)issues there will be (Many) more when they take their units out this Spring! Have you ever heard(It don't get that Cold Here!)? Youroo!!

I also developed a leak happened during this cold spell just went through this week. We are camping in Pensacola NAS. Had two nights of hard freeze the next day seen ice around my low point drains and dipping at the inspection plate above the bathroom drain pipe. open all that up and put a bucket under it. It's clear water so I know it's not the holding tank or drain line. Today was the really first warm day got to 60 degrees so should melt all the ice and maybe I can find it, so don't feel like the lone ranger. I will see how much water I collected in 24hrs then at least I'll know of the size i'm looking for. Good idea youroo I think I might give that a try today also........
