Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Addison

Why is it that pipes to freeze and what causes the burst? As science has shown us, water expands as it freezes. That same scientific principle applies inside your home’s pipes. Frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes. That means there’s a significant amount of pressure is being exerted on the pipes. The pressure being applied is what causes the pipes to be compromised and break which leads to a plumbing mess for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can burst and leave you with a large amount water damage and costly cleanup bills.

The most susceptible pipes to becoming frozen are exposed water pipes when it gets blisteringly cold outside during winter. Some of these pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, like basements or garages, and pipes that run against walls with little to no protective insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Leave your cabinet doors open to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
  • If you’re going to be out of town or away for a prolonged amount of time, turn off the home’s main water line.
  • Try to protect your pipes by insulating any pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas if possible.
  • Let your home’s faucets run slightly to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
  • Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
  • Make sure your property’s thermostat is above 55 degrees.

The best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, professional and knowledgeable plumbers at Capps Plumbing.
