Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Highland Park
Why do pipes freeze or burst? As is commonly known, water expands when it freezes. That principle still applies in your home’s pipe. Whatever is holding or containing this frozen water (in this case metal pipes, or perhaps plastic pipes) will be subjected to 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 extensive water damage.
Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets bitterily cold during 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 minimal insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Open up any cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are by.
- If you are going to be away for a prolonged period of time, shut off your main water line.
- Be sure to insulate pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Turn on faucets lightly to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
- Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
- Don’t keep the thermostat 55 degrees or below.
The best way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, expert plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing.
