Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Elmhurst

Why is it that pipes freeze and what causes them to burst? As science has taught us time and again, water expands as it freezes. This same scientific principle also applies to water inside a home’s pipes. When frozen water is trapped within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a large amount of pressure being exerted on the walls of the pipes and this heavy force is what causes the pipes to be compromised and results in breakages. It’s a soggy scenario that could spell a plumbing disaster for your property. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can all burst and flood your home or business with water damage and expensive cleanup costs.

Water pipes that are closest to outdoor conditions are the pipes that are the most at risk for freezing. When the temperatures take a dive during arctic winter cold fronts, it’s especially apparent. The pipes that are the most at risk to becoming frozen include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, such as basements or garages, and any pipes that run against walls that aren’t covered with protective insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Leave cabinet doors open to allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
  • If you’re going out of town or are going to be away for an extended 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.
  • Slightly run your home’s faucets to create a small flow of water.
  • Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be at risk for freezing.
  • Set the property’s thermostat to at least 55 degrees if not higher.

Scheduling regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, professional and highly-skilled plumbing experts at Capps Plumbing is the best way to avoid burst pipe emergencies.
