Pipes and taps that are outdoors, or in cold places like lofts or garages, can freeze and burst. The best way to avoid this is to be prepared before the cold weather comes. When temperatures plummet, the water in your pipes and taps can freeze.
Frozen water expands and can crack even the strongest metal pipe. You may not notice this immediately, and only know you have a problem when the cracked pipe thaws and water starts leaking from it.
