Tips to Prevent Frozen Pipes

During winter, your pipe can thaw up and freeze, causing a blockage of water and a buildup of water in the main water line. Your house might stop receiving water altogether, and severe damage to your property can accumulate if nothing is done in due time. A frozen pipe can burst at any time, so hire Plumbway to thaw your pipes with one of our pipe thawing machines! Clearing the frozen blockages by using a professional plumbing company can save you hundreds, and even thousands of dollars in costs that might have arisen had the pipe not been fixed!

Tips for Frozen Pipes:

  • Expose the pipe under the faucet/sink, usually inside a cabinet, to the heat of your house. The frozen pipe can receive heat this way.
  • Insulate water pipes and drains! This is a fantastic preventative measure, and the expert plumbers from Plumbway can help you out. Call for an appointment today!
  • Pipes through-out the house, especially in garages and furnaces, should NOT be exposed to cold temperatures during the winter.

Preventing frozen pipes is a good idea, but it doesn’t mean it won’t happen. A pipe left unthawed can lead to a hole in your wallet and in your property. It needs to be urgently taken care of. If you are from Niagara – Hamilton – Burlington – Oakville – GTA – Golden Horseshoe areas call Plumbway today or request an appointment online and a representative will get back to you shortly.
