Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Glenview
Why do pipes freeze or burst? As science has taught us, water expands when it freezes. Because of this principle, whatever is holding or containing this frozen water (in this case metal pipes, or perhaps plastic pipes) undergo an extreme amount of pressure and they may break, resulting in major plumbing problems for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can burst and cause massive water damage.
Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets very cold in the winter. These include areas such as 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
- Open cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are by.
- If you are going out of town for an extended period of time, turn off your main water line.
- Be sure to insulate pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Turn on faucets slightly to allow a small drip of water to flow overnight.
- Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
- Don’t set the thermostat in your home or business to under 55 degrees.
The best way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, experienced plumbing professionals at Capps Plumbing.
