Why Frozen Pipes Can Be A Problem

Water when frozen can expand and we all know that is a bad result for a homeowners pipes.  The expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, this includes (metal, plastic, clay, PVC pipes).  With water expanding when frozen it can burst or crack a pipe cause a horrific nightmare for a homeowner.

  • The most common pipes to have freezing occur:
    • Pipes that are exposed to cold weather when the temperature drops:
      • Hose Bibs (outside faucet), Swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines.
    • Water supply lines in unheated interior sections of your home:
      • Basement, crawl spaces, attics, garages, even kitchen cabinets (leave cabinets open over night in winter time)
    • Pipes that run against exterior walls that have very little to non existence insulation.

 

How To Protect Pies From Having Freezing Occur

These are a few recommendations we offer at Texas Plumbing Repair To Help You Prepare For The Cold:

  • Drain your swimming pool and water sprinkler system following your manufacturer’s or installer’s directions.
  • Remove, drain, and store hoses used outdoors.  Close inside valves that supply outdoor hose bibs.  Open outside hose bib to allow the water to drain.  You as well want to keep the outside valve open so that remaining water remaining in the line can expand without causing any damage.
  • Add insulation to attics, basements and crawl spaces.
  • Insulate hot and cold water pipes in the garage, under kitchen sink and bathroom cabinets.

 

How To Prevent Frozen Pipes: 

  • Keep garage doors closed if water lines are present.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets allowing warm area to circulate and surround pipes.
  • If cold weather is sever allow a small drip to present from the faucet served by exposed pipes.
  • Keep temperature in house same during night and day time.
