Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Inverness

Why do pipes freeze or burst? As science and observation has shown us, water expands when it freezes. That principle is valid when it comes to your home’s piping. Whatever is holding or containing this frozen water (in this case metal pipes, or perhaps plastic pipes) will be forced to undergo a significant amount of pressure and they can break. This results 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 burden you with massive water damage.

Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets frigidly cold outside during 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 you home’s cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are by.
  • If you are going away for a period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
  • Make sure to insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Turn on faucets to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
  • Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
  • Do not set the thermostat below 55 degrees.

The best way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, experienced plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing.
