Cold Temps=Cold Pipes

Give your pipes a helping hand this winter season.

If your pipes run through a cabinet or vanity open the doors to give your pipes some warmth from the warm temperature of the room. If there is no doors to open, just leave the water trickle from the faucet. The cost of the water running is a LOT lower then the cost of a frozen pipe being repaired. 

If you would forget to leave the water trickle or a door open, here is what you can do to thaw the pipe.  

Turn off the main shut-off valve. Use warm air from a hair dryer or space heater to melt the water frozen inside the pipe. NEVER leave the space heater unattended. After the pipe is thawed slowly turn the main shut-off back on. When the water is running throw the pipe check for any cracks or leaks which could of been caused by the freezing. 

If you have a burst pipe, shut off your water and give us a call! We are here to help!
