Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Bensenville

Why do pipes freeze and burst? As basic science has shown us, water expands as it freezes. This same scientific principle also occurs to water inside your home’s pipes. When frozen water is contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a large exertion of pressure on the walls of the pipes. This pressure is what causes compromises the pipes and leads to breakages which in turn adds up to a plumbing mess for your property. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can all burst and you with a significant amount water damage and expensive cleanups.

Pipes that are the most prone to freezing are water pipes with exposure to the elements. This is even more evident when the temperatures dip far below normal outside during bitter winter blasts. 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 very well insulated.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Try keeping cabinet doors open. This will allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are situated.
  • If you’re going to be away for a prolonged period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
  • If possible, insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Allow your home’s faucets to run slightly for a small flow of water.
  • Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be prone to freezing.
  • Make sure that the property’s thermostat is programmed to at least 55 degrees if not higher.

The most effective way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, capable and experienced plumbing professionals at Capps Plumbing.
