We have water in house so I don't think anything burst nor is it too cold here, really low at night-0 to 10 degrees, but we live in SE Utah, desert area. Our home is only 2 yrs old but is a modular home. NOT sure what else you need but suffice it to say, it causes us great concern and I cannot seem to find anything about this except for insulating pipes, etc... CAN SOMEONE HELP B4 WE HAVE TO CALL

My kitchen Franke gooseneck faucet is only allowing a thin stream of water to flow. I unscrewed the head and the stream of water was still the same... very constricted. The the coil was removed from under the counter and I can see no way of flushing water through that. Now I have no use of my kitchen faucet. Is my faucet shot or can it be fixed?
I dont deal with victaulic fittings and systems ever, but i tried to take on the task of repairing a leak on a 4" victaulic coupling for a water chiller, if kinda of lost and dont know where to start, from shutting of the water to powering down the pump system, my uncle said usual you could find the water shut off near the sprinkler room, is that true ? also how do those systems work do i have bleed all the air out and if so where. I have pictures if that would help out and video.
We are doing a reroute through our ceiling (no attic) to replace 3/4 copper hot and cold water pipes due to a slab leak on our 6 year old custom home (sigh!). What kind of pipe is best suited -- copper or polyethylene?
Many thanks for your thoughts.
