How do pipes freeze and why do they burst? As science shows us, water expands when it freezes. That principle still holds true when it comes to your home’s pipes. The frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes and they will be under a significant amount of pressure. These forces can cause the pipes to be compromised and break. This results in an extensive plumbing issue 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 expensive cleanups costs.
Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets blistingly cold outside over the winter months. Some of these areas 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 minimal insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Keep your home’s cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are situated.
- If you are going out of town or otherwise away for a longer period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Do your best insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- 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 let your thermostat to be set to anything under 55 degrees.
