Has the start of your week involved conversations with plumbers about water damage and pipe repairs? You’re not alone.

Temperatures have risen, but the effects of this weekend’s deep freeze are still lingering for many New England residents dealing with burst pipes. 

Homes, businesses, and even hospitals are still recovering after cold weather lead to flooding, leaks, and damaged plumbing. In the meantime, plumbers are working overtime. Baker Elman Plumbing in Newton received nearly 700 calls over the weekend, according to NBC10 Boston. Given the demand, it may be a while before some people’s pipes are back to normal.


“For non-regular customers, it could be a week or two,” Carl Jonasson, owner of Needham-based plumbing company C.H. Jonasson Corp. told the Boston Globe. “Most plumbers aren’t even picking up the phone now.”
