TULSA, Okla. - A local plumber says as temperatures drop, calls to his business are increasing.
Ryan Britton of Britton Plumbing says his phones have been ringing off the hook with people desperate for a plumber.
Britton says it is important that people make sure their crawl spaces are closed and little doors ar shut on the inside of the house in order to avoid big headaches later.
He also says residents should leave water dripping and open cabinet doors so that the area underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks warms.
Britton told FOX23 that it can be very dangerous for plumbers who have to work underneath a house in cold weather with ice cold water as they work for hours to make a repair. He said plumbers will often use wet suits to help keep their body warm.
Though companies like Britton's may be running a 24-hour emergency repair service in the cold, after-hours repairs could cost homeowners more.
