Backflow preventer unit

Asked January 7, 2017, 10:55 PM EST

What should I do? A freeze has caused my backflow preventer unit to burst and water is spewing from the threads on the pvc joint close to metal joint. I turned the water to the unit off and to whole house. Please help with any advice.

Sorry to hear of your problem. You will need to call a plumber to replace the device and inspect the surrounding pipes for damage. There is really not much else you can do.
