Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Deer Park

Why do pipes freeze and why do they burst? As science has shown us, water expands when it freezes. That principle still applies when it comes to the inside your home’s pipes. The frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes and that will cause a significant amount of pressure the pipes are trying to contain. The high pressure can cause the pipes to be compromised and break resulting in a massive plumbing emergency for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can burst and leave you with a significant amount water damage and costly cleanups expenses.

Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets blisteringly cold out during wintertime. Some of these pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, like basements or garages, and pipes that run against walls with very little insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Leave your cabinet doors open to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
  • If you will be out of your house for longer than usual, turn off your home’s main water line.
  • Try to insulate pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Slightly run your home’s faucets to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
  • Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
  • Do not set your thermostat to anything under 55 degrees.

The best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, experienced plumbing professionals at Capps Plumbing.
