Frozen Pipe Prevention Tips Council Grove KS


The extreme cold integrated with wind chill develops a significant risk for burst or frozen pipelines. Freezing water relies on ice within the busted frozen water linepipeline, which in turn can broaden and obstruct the line. This clog can develop excessive pressure throughout the system and trigger pipe failure in susceptible locations-- no matter if the pipeline is made from plastic, copper or steel. Even a small fracture can let loose more than 250 gallons of water in a single day. The outcomes of frozen pipes can trigger property damage, high repair work expenses and interruption of organisation.

Follow these plumbing suggestions to help reduce the risk of freezing pipelines, and to help avoid damage and pricey repair works.

Prevention Tips for Frozen Pipes

Open cabinet doors under sinks and in storage locations to enable heat from the room to circulate around uninsulated pipes. Allow a trickle of hot and cold water to drip overnight; however, be careful not to run the water into a drain line that is exposed to the severe cold since that line might freeze.
Insulate all pipelines in unheated locations or against uninsulated outdoors walls, in garages or in crawl areas. Apply heat tape or thermostat-controlled heat cables around pipelines that are exposed and susceptible to freezing.
Ensure the heat is switched on in the building and is set no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
