Those a dangerious temps. for plumbing. If you are able to access ALL the piping that is in or near unheated space, it might be possible to use heat tape. I know it's OK for metal pipe, but I'm not sure about plastic. I suggest that you do research on that.
Be aware that when using power vents to expell humid air (which I expect will be necessary at those low temps), it is possible to have a concentration of cold air flow in a particular area that can freeze water even when the overall inside temps are well above freezing. Ask me how I know.
