Frozen Pipe Prevention Tips New Market AL


The extreme cold combined with wind chill develops a significant danger for burst or frozen pipes. Freezing water relies on ice within the frozen pipespipe, which in turn can broaden and block the line. This obstruction can develop excessive pressure throughout the system and trigger pipeline failure in vulnerable locations-- no matter if the pipe is made of plastic, copper or steel. Even a tiny fracture can unleash more than 250 gallons of water in a single day. The results of frozen water pipes can cause property damage, high repair work costs and disruption of organisation.

Follow these plumbing tips to help decrease the threat of freezing pipelines, and to help avoid damage and pricey repairs.

Prevention Tips for Frozen Pipes

Open cabinet doors under sinks and in storage areas to allow heat from the space to distribute around uninsulated pipelines. Allow a trickle of cold and hot water to drip over night; however, be careful not to run the water into a drain line that is exposed to the extreme cold since that line may freeze.
Insulate all pipelines in unheated areas or versus uninsulated outdoors walls, in garages or in crawl spaces. Apply heat tape or thermostat-controlled heat cable televisions around pipes that are exposed and prone to freezing.
Make sure the heat is switched on in the structure and is set no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prevent Frozen Pipes

Turn off the water main leading into the structure to keep lines from freezingreduce pressure on frozen pipelines and lessen flooding if the pipes burst.
