Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Kenilworth
How do pipes freeze and why do they burst? As science proves, water expands when it freezes. That principle still holds true when it comes to your home’s pipes. Whatever is holding or containing this frozen water (in this case metal pipes, or perhaps plastic pipes) will be subjected to a significant amount of pressure and they can eventually give in and 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 substantial water damage and associated cleanup costs.
Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets bitterly cold outside during wintertime. 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 a small amount of insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Open any cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are near.
- If you are going to be away for a long period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Do your best to insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Slightly run your home’s faucets to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
- Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
- Avoid setting the thermostat below 55 degrees.
The best way to avoid burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the trusted, experienced plumbing professionals at Capps Plumbing.
