What to Do If You Suspect a Frozen Water Pipe
Is your faucet trickling when you turn it on? There is likely a blockage of ice somewhere in the water pipe. If you suspect a frozen water pipe, then turn off the main water shutoff valve.
Next, if you feel comfortable, take the following steps: open the faucet to which the frozen pipe supplies water, then locate the blockage by following the pipe back from the faucet to where it feels cold on the wall. The pipe may have areas where there is frost or ice, and it may be bulging or slightly cracked.
If you are not comfortable locating the frozen pipe, then you should call our local plumbers! The expert team at The Great Plumbing Co. can help you locate the damaged area and perform pipe thawing and frozen pipe repairs.
Preventing Frozen Pipes
Frozen pipes are certainly a hassle that you’d rather live without. But they can be a much more serious situation and result in expensive repairs if left untreated. Luckily, there are ways to prevent the problem from occurring in the future if you take the following steps:
- Let the faucet drip slightly on particularly cold days or nights.
- Open the cabinets to expose the pipes inside the cabinet to heat from the room.
- Insulate your pipes with foam insulation.
- Wrap your troublesome pipes with thermal electrical tape.
- Always keep unheated areas above freezing with a permanent heater.
