plumbing on exterior wall in SoCal


Hi,

I live in Southern California (OC) have plumbing on the exterior walls of my house. Does anyone know at what temperature pipes start to freeze?

A couple nights a year it might reach 30 degrees here, and we've had a record low of 25 degrees once. Is this something I could be worried about?

Thanks.

Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

You should have not concerns about pipes bursting due to freezing.

Water supply pipes can be on exterior walls at most any inhabitable temperature if the pipes were placed to the interior side of the insulation , assuming the structure's exterior walls are insulated. Supply pipes on the wrong side of insulation ? all bets are off at temps. less than 32F.
