There are a lot of problems that can arise when dealing with plumbing. Some of things can be fixed easily, while others are not. Whatever your particular situation, whether big or small, or if you can fix it yourself.
To eliminate the possibility of having frozen pipes, insulate all exterior pipes and be sure to keep your interior house temperature above freezing, even if the house is vacant. Pipes have the potential to freeze as soon as they reach freezing mark. It takes time in order for thawing to occur so that you can have running water. However, frozen pipes commonly break or crack pipes, which would cause a huge mess and an extremely big repair bill.
