Several years ago, when we bought our house we needed to renovate a lot of things, although we got the services of professionals but the little experience I have was an added advantage for us. I tried to work together with them and I asked a lot of questions, they explained so many things to me. They were nice and patience. I'm not saying that I'm that good but there are some basic things I can do. I learnt a lot from my my father because I was always helping him when I was younger. I was always there when he was fixing things at home (I could help him hold or measure out things ) I knew all the tools he was using. I still remember those days, though we don't say much to each other when he is working (fixing things) but I felt we connected a lot. We shared a lot of eye contacts and smiles. Several times, he would even ask me to go with him when he was working for family friends. Because I was always with him, I learned a lot of things without knowing it. Today, I would say that I'm reaping the results.
When I talk about frozen pipes with friends, here are some basic things I tell them to do in case their pipes freeze or burst and that's what I also want to share with you.
1. The very first thing to do is to turn off the water at the mains.
Though things like this don't happen very often but if they do, you would be thankful that you know what to do instead of being confused.
