Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Bannockburn
Why do pipes freeze and what causes them to burst? As rudimentary science has taught us, water expands as it freezes. That same basic scientific principle also applies to your home’s pipes. When frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a significant amount of pressure is being exerted on the pipes. The high pressure is what causes the pipes to be compromised and break which leads to a plumbing disaster for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can all burst and leave in its wake a large amount water damage and costly cleanup expenses.
The pipes that are most susceptible to becoming frozen are exposed water pipes, especially when it gets blisteringly cold outside during the winter months. Some of these susceptible pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, like basements or garages, and pipes that run against any walls that aren’t insulated.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Keep your cabinet doors open to let heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are situated.
- If you’re going to be out of town or away for a prolonged period, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Protect your pipes by insulating any pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas if possible.
- Run your home’s faucets slightly to allow for a small flow of water.
- Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
- Make sure the property’s thermostat is programmed above 55 degrees.
The most surefire way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, professional and experienced plumbers at Capps Plumbing.
