Why Do Pipes Freeze in the Winter?
When water freezes in a pipe, it expands and can exert pressure measured at over 2,000 pounds per square inch. This pressure is enough to rupture almost any pipe when it is filled with water and has no place for the ice to expand. When the pipe bursts, it will spill several hundred gallons of water per hour, which equates to thousands of dollars of damage to your home. Frozen water pipe prevention, however, is easy.
Follow these steps to prevent frozen pipes:
- Drain water from outdoor pipe systems like pools, hoses, or water sprinklers.
- Check around your home for areas of unprotected water pipes.
- Wrap outdoor pipes in protective sleeves or insulation.
- If you do not have insulation or foam sleeves available, a crumpled newspaper can provide some protection from the elements.
- Keep the heat on in your home to help heat pipes located in the walls.
If you think you may already have frozen pipes, however, call Hoover for frozen pipe repair.
