In this type of weather it is imperative we pay special attention to our pipes. With temperatures falling into the negative degrees, your chances of losing water (and money) increase.
In case you develop frozen pipes this winter, here are a few tips to help you.
- Use a space heater, heat lamp, or hair dryer to thaw the frozen length of pipe.
- Wrapping freezing pipes with thermostatically controlled heat tape (from $50 to $200, depending on length) is also an effective way to quickly thaw a trouble spot.
- Don’t thaw pipes using a propane torch, which presents a fire risk.
After, you may develop some leaks, which we will gladly help to stop, please call Your Plumber ASAP to schedule an appointment.
As always we are here to help solve your plumbing issues.
