Tips to Prevent Frozen Pipes
We recommend you take the steps below to help prevent frozen pipes during the winter. But if you need rapid pipe thawing, contact Call The Plumbing Doctor Inc today.
- Inspect the water supply lines around your home. Note any supply lines that are found in unheated areas. These are the most likely to freeze and should be monitored regularly during cold weather.
- Consider adding a pipe sleeve or installing heat tape around water supply lines found outdoors or in unheated areas of your property.
- Be sure to keep bathroom and kitchen cabinets open during cold weather to allow heated air to more easily reach water lines to help prevent freezing.
- Even if you’re on vacation, keep your home or office’s heating unit working and leave faucets running at a slow trickle to help keep water in motion to prevent freezing.
