Tips to Prevent Frozen Pipes

With the winter months quickly approaching, preventing your pipes from freezing can help you avoid serious, expensive repairs later on. Just taking a few preventive measures can help to eliminate the risk of frozen pipes and make sure you get through the winter without any problems.

Steps to Prevent Seasonal Plumbing Problems

When water freezes, it expands and puts pressure on whatever is containing it. In your home, that pressure will be placed on your pipes. Whether your pipes are metal or plastic, there is the risk for bursting if the pressure builds up enough.

Before the weather gets too cold, there are some steps you can take to prevent freezing:

  • Drain water from swimming pool, water sprinkler supplies, hose lines, and any other outside faucet. Water left inside of these substances can still freeze, even if the lines are not being consistently used.
  • Close indoor values to outdoor water lines and leave the outdoor valves open. This way no new water is brought to those pipes from the indoor valves, and any water left inside can expand out of the outdoor valve.
  • Check your home to find any spots where water pipes and valves may be uninsulated. If you find uninsulated pipes, be sure to get them insulated.

This winter, do not leave yourself in the cold! Taking steps to prevent pipes from freezing will be in your best interest this season.

If your pipes do freeze and burst, home supply centers will have patch kits that can help repair the burst pipe for a short period of time. When spring comes, be sure to call A-1 Sewer & Septic Service, Inc. to replace the pipe and keep your home in good working order.
