Why Are Frozen Pipes a Problem?

There’s no secret to how frozen pipes occur. Water in the pipes freezes solid when the temperature surrounding the pipes becomes too cold. The obvious problem is that it cuts off the flow of water to the affected outlet in your St. Louis, MO home, preventing it from being used.

The bigger problem comes when the pipes burst. Water expands when it freezes, putting inordinate pressure on the sides of the pipes. If they burst or rupture, water and ice will spill into the surrounding areas, which often includes the crawlspaces in your home. The water will thus damage the surrounding materials, as well as requiring a plumbing replacement session to replace the damaged length of pipe.

Speedy Service Is Needed

The good news about frozen or burst pipes is that you can usually spot them pretty quickly. The affected outlet simply won’t produce water, or will do so in a thin little trickle. Burst pipes tend to make their presence known, though beware of them in vacation homes or when you go off for the holidays.

Regardless of the circumstances, the issue needs to be resolved swiftly. That means not only a plumbing service that can arrive with all deliberate speed, but an accurate assessment of the damage and swift repairs designed to get your plumbing up to speed again quickly. That usually entails replacement of the damaged pipes as well as cleaning up the water damage.

Prevention Is the Key

Repairs are one thing, but the more you can do to stop the pipes from freezing or bursting, the better. The easiest step to take is to turn all the outlets and faucets in your home on just a trickle, which will help prevent the water inside them from freezing.

A more substantial effort can be made with the help of a professional plumber. They can identify potential problem spots in your plumbing, and recommend practical solutions such as insulation. They can also recommend steps to take for places like vacation homes that may be vulnerable to frozen pipes. Our trained team of experts is standing by to help, and you don’t need to wait until winter to schedule an inspection and form a plan of action.
