Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Elk Grove Village

Why do pipes freeze and what causes them to burst? As science has shown us time and again, water expands as it freezes. This same scientific principle also 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 amount of pressure being exerted on the walls of the pipes. This heavy force is what causes the pipes to be compromised and results in breakages. It’s a soggy scenario that 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 flood your property with water damage and expensive cleanups.

Water pipes closest to outdoor conditions are the pipes that are the most susceptible to freezing. When the temperatures take a dive during arctic winter blasts, it’s especially evident. The pipes that are the most prone to freezing include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, such as basements or garages, and any pipes that run along walls and aren’t covered with insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • By leaving cabinet doors open, it will allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
  • If you’re going to be away from your property for an extended amount of time, turn off the property’s main water line.
  • When possible, insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Allow your home’s faucets to run slightly to create a small flow of water.
  • Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be prone to freezing.
  • Set the property’s thermostat to at least 55 degrees if not warmer.

Scheduling regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, professional and experienced plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing is the best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies.
