Freezing Pipes

Frozen water in pipes can cause water pressure buildup between the ice blockage and the closed faucet at the end of a pipe, which leads to pipes bursting at their weakest point. To keep water in pipes from freezing, take the following steps:

  • Fit exposed pipes with insulation sleeves or wrapping to slow the heat transfer
  • Seal cracks and holes in outside walls and foundations near water pipes with caulking
  • Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets connected to pipes that run through an unheated or unprotected space

Keep these in mind to reduce your severe winter weather risk.
