    Frozen Pipe In Winter

    Winter isn’t all about cozy days and the holidays. It’s all the season when your pipes can freeze over. Freezing pipes are one of the most common issues during winter. A typical pipe runs about four to eight gallons in a minute of water, and if one of these freezes over, you are looking at a financial disaster.

    Frozen Pipe Repair

    Frozen pipes can happen to anyone’s plumbing system especially where winters are cold and unforgivable. During freezing temperatures, water in the pipes can form ice. This ice can add excess pressure on the pipes and if this exceeds the 3000 psi limit, your pipes can get split.

    Ideally, you should focus on preventing pipes from freezing. However, if you suspect that you have a frozen pipe, or in case a pipe bursts, you need to shut off the main water supply and call a local frozen pipe plumber to assess the extent of the damage and make the necessary repairs and replacements.

    Signs Of Frozen Pipes

    To catch the problem of frozen pipes early on, you need to know what signs to look out for. Here are a few things you should keep an eye out for:

    Damp patches on drywall
    Unusual and foul odors from pipes
    Reduced or no water flow
    Ice covering the pipes
    Weird noises from pipes

    It is best always to engage a local service. Local services understand the area and the plumbing systems much better and can provide emergency assistance.

    Frozen Pipe Prevention

    1. Keep the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors open occasionally to allow warmer air to circulate the pipes. This is a small step, but it can prevent frozen pipes.
    2. If there is any plumbing in the garage, it is best to keep the door closed during winter to prevent freezing pipes.
    3. Invest in insulation for water pipes before winter sets in.
    4. If you are going on holiday or not using the plumbing system, turn the main water supply off.
    5. Keep water running in the pipes to prevent pipes from freezing. Even a few trickling drops can be helpful.
    6. Ensure your thermostat temperature is the same for the day and the night. You may get a higher bill for heating, but you will save on the frozen pipe repair cost if a pipe bursts.
    7. Cut off all the outdoor water spigots and hoses before winter sets in.
