Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Barrington
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 freezing are exposed water pipes. This is even more evident when the mercury drops below normal outside during cold winter blasts. Some of these susceptible pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, for example basements or garages, and pipes that run along any walls that aren’t well insulated.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Try keeping your cabinet doors open. This will let heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are situated.
- If you’re going out of town or away for a prolonged period, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas when possible.
- Allow your home’s faucets to run slightly to create a small flow of water.
- Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be prone to freezing.
- Double check that the property’s thermostat is set to at least above 55 degrees.
The most effective way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, professional and knowledgeable plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing.
