Frozen Drain Pipes Thawed NY NJ: Commercial & Residential
Extreme cold, combined with wind chill creates the perfect conditions for burst or frozen pipes. When water freezes, it turns to ice within the pipe. This, in turn, can expand and block the line. This blockage creates excessive pressure throughout the system which may cause the pipe to burst, regardless if the pipe is made of copper, steel or plastic. Even a small crack can unleash upwards if 250 gallons of water in a single day, causing thousands of dollars in property damage, and the disruption of your life and business, not to mention the costly repairs.
If You Have Frozen Pipes
1) Shut off the water main supply leading into the building. This reduces pressure on frozen pipes and minimize flooding if the pipes burst.
2) Use a hair dryer to thaw the ice blockage if the frozen pipe is visible. Do NOT use an open flame to thaw the pipes. This could result in a house fire, which certainly would complicate your problems!
3) If frozen pipes are not visible, contact DrainWorksLLC
