Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Carol Stream
Why do pipes freeze and burst? As science has shown us, water expands as it freezes. This scientific principle applies to water inside a home’s pipes as well. If frozen water is trapped within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a tremendous exertion of pressure on the walls of the pipes. This heavy pressure is what causes the pipes to be compromised and leads to breakages. This soggy scenario adds up 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 inundate your property with water damage and costly cleanups.
Water pipes closest to outdoor conditions are the pipes that are at the most risk of freezing. This is especially apparent when the temperatures take a dive during arctic winter blasts. The pipes that are the most susceptible 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 covered with insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Leaving cabinet doors open will allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
- If you’re going to be away for a long amount of time, turn off the property’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.
- Use heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be at risk of freezing.
- Make sure that the property’s thermostat is set to at least 55 degrees if not warmer.
Scheduling regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, professional and experienced plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing is the most effective way to prevent burst pipe emergencies.
