Burst Pipes Winter
When water freezes, it expands. As the weather turns cold, the risk of that water freezing in your pipes increases. This can lead to burst pipes as water freezes in lines. Even when the pipes don’t burst, you may still suffer from leaks as seams and valves are stressed. You may first notice this as blockages, as running water cannot flow past sections frozen solid. If you experience this, please call a professional right away- that blocked section may have already burst.
There are a few things you can do to prevent burst pipes due to freezing:
- Leave your water on a slow drip during cold nights- as long as water is moving its less likely to freeze
- Install insulation around exposed pipes- check attics, crawl spaces, unheated garages or sheds, and external lines.
- Keep your thermostat at 55 F or higher- the cost of heating your house even when you are out of town is nothing compared to the cost of water damage if your pipes burst while you are away.
- Drain water from pools, hoses, and sprinkler supply lines before winter sets in. If the line is empty, there’s no risk of it bursting
- If your lines do freeze, try to identify the source and thaw carefully- or call a professional plumber
