DENVER -- Colorado plumbing companies were inundated with calls this weekend from residents whose pipes burst.
Master Plumber David Bright with Applewood Plumbing Heating and Electric says his company got hundreds of calls each day.
Rosie Malinovskii was one of them. "I think I'm lucky I got somebody over here," she said. She says she woke up on New Year's Day and had no water. She knew her pipes were frozen. She says a few hours later she heard the water dripping from the ceiling in the basement.
Luckily she knew where her emergency shut-off switch was, and shut off the water right away. David Bright had to cut out some dry wall to find the broken pipe.
He says it's a good thing Rosie was home and able to shut off the water, otherwise the flood could have been much worse. Repairs can cost anywhere from $300 to tens of thousands of dollars.
