Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Bartlett
Why do pipes freeze and why do they burst? As basic science has taught us, water expands as it freezes. That same scientific principle also applies to water inside your home’s pipes. When frozen water is trapped within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a tremendous amount of pressure is being exerted on the walls of the pipes. The pressure is what causes compromises the pipes and leads to breaks which adds up to a plumbing mess 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 significant amount water damage and subsequent cleanup costs.
The pipes that are most prone to freezing are water pipes with exposure. This is even more evident when the mercury dips far below normal outside during frigid winter blasts. Some of these susceptible pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, such as basements or garages, and pipes that run along any walls that aren’t insulated.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Try to keep cabinet doors open. This will allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
- If you’re leaving town or going away for a prolonged period, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Try to insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas if possible.
- Let your home’s faucets to run slightly to allow a small flow of water.
- Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be susceptible to freezing.
- Double check that the property’s thermostat is programmed to at least 55 degrees.
