Thawing Frozen Pipes in Sioux Falls

When the temperature drops below freezing, the water in your pipes can freeze. As the water freezes, it expands, which can cause the pipe to burst.

This can lead to a major plumbing emergency and significant water damage. At Copper Cottage, we offer frozen pipe repair in Sioux Falls. We can also help you take steps to prevent your pipes from freezing in the first place.

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

When the temperature drops below freezing, it is important to take steps to prevent your pipes from freezing. This is especially important if you are going to be away from home for an extended period of time. If you are going on vacation or leaving your home for the winter, you should take steps to winterize your home and prevent your pipes from freezing.

Some tips to prevent your pipes from freezing include:

  • Keep the heat on - If you are going to be away from home, you should keep the heat on. You don't need to keep your home as warm as you would if you were there, but you should keep the temperature above freezing.
  • Open the cabinet doors - The pipes under your sink are more likely to freeze because they are located on an exterior wall. You can help prevent your pipes from freezing by opening the cabinet doors under your sink to allow warm air to circulate around the pipes.
  • Let the faucet drip - If you are concerned about your pipes freezing, you can let the faucet drip. This can help prevent your pipes from freezing because the water is moving.
  • Insulate your pipes - You can help prevent your pipes from freezing by insulating them. You can use pipe insulation or heat tape to insulate your pipes. You should also insulate any pipes that are located in unheated areas of your home, such as your basement, attic, or garage.
  • Disconnect your garden hose - If you leave your garden hose connected to your outdoor faucet, the water in the hose can freeze and cause the faucet to freeze. You should disconnect your garden hose and drain it before the temperature drops below freezing.

What to Do If Your Pipes Freeze

If you turn on your faucet and only a trickle of water comes out, your pipes may be frozen. If you think your pipes are frozen, you should call a professional plumber right away. You should also turn off the water supply to your home and open the faucet.

This can help relieve the pressure in your pipes and prevent them from bursting. You should also apply heat to the frozen pipe. You can use a hairdryer, a space heater, or a heating pad to thaw the pipe. You should never use an open flame to thaw a frozen pipe because this can cause the pipe to burst.
