Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Long Grove

Why do pipes freeze and why do they burst? As science has proven, water expands when it freezes. That principle still applies when it comes to your home’s pipes. Whatever is holding or containing this frozen water (in this case metal pipes, or even plastic pipes) will be under a significant amount of pressure and they can eventually be compromised and break. This results in massive plumbing problems for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can burst and leave you with substantial water damage and substantial costs to clean up the mess.

Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets frigidly cold out over 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 that don’t have a lot of insulation.

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

  • Open your home’s cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
  • If you are going away for a longer amount time than ordinarily, turn off your home’s main water line.
  • Try to insulate pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
  • Turn on 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.
  • Do not set the home’s thermostat below 55 degrees.

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