Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Glen Ellyn

Why do pipes freeze and what makes them burst? As science has shown us, water expands as it freezes. The same principle also applies to water inside a building structure’s pipes. If frozen water is trapped within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a massive amount of pressure being exerted on the walls of the pipes. This constant heavy pressure is what causes the pipes to be compromised and results in breakages. It’s a messy scenario and 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 home or business with water damage and expensive cleanup bills.

Water pipes that are closest to outdoor elements are the pipes that are prone to freezing. When outdoor temperature plummet arctic winter cold fronts, it’s even more evident. The pipes that are the most prone 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 protected with insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Leave the cabinet doors open. This will 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 a long period of time, turn off the property’s main water line.
  • When possible, insulate any pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Slightly run your home’s faucets to allow a small drip of water.
  • Try applying heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be prone to freezing.
  • Program the thermostat to at the very least 55 degrees if not higher.

Scheduling regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, professional and highly-trained plumbing experts at Capps Plumbing is the best way to ward off burst pipe emergencies.
