The winter season brings, along with several inconveniences, a unique set of plumbing problems, including that of frozen pipes. In Lake Stevens, WA, area property owners who fail to insulate their water and drainpipes properly are likely to encounter hassles from frozen pipes as the outside temperature plummets well below the freezing point.
