Frozen Pipes

24 Hours a Day 7 Days a Week

With the cold weather that Toronto has, many times frozen pipes are the main reason that a plumber is called to a home. Frozen pipes can be a disaster if they are not properly thawed and looked over. When these pipes freeze, it is going to make it impossible to run water into the home, which we all know that no one wants to go days without water…it is simply not feasible! However, on top of the inconvenience that these cause, they can cause damage to the property as well. Frozen pipes are more likely to burst. The pressure that is caused in these pipes when they are frozen, could lead to the pipe bursting, and if they were to start thawing it could mean water pooling in the house or even outside where it refreezes causing slippery conditions.

Signs of Frozen Pipes

There are several signs of frozen pipes that every homeowner needs to watch out for.

  1. The temperature is right to freeze these pipes. If the temperature falls to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, then you know that pipes freezing is probable.
  2. You see frost on the pipes that you can see such as those that are under the sink. This is a warning sign that the pipe is close to freezing.
  3. No water is coming from the pipes when you turn on the faucet.
  4. Strange smells. When the pipes are frozen, most people find that the drain and faucet have an odd smell coming from them.

Remember, that the pipes that are located on exterior walls, those in attics or basements, are more prone to become frozen. They are not receiving the same amount of heat as the rest of the pipes in the home. So, you will want to take the necessary steps to ensure that these pipes are protected. For example, insulating these pipes better or the like.

How Professional Plumbers Can Help

When we go into a home with frozen pipes, we want to get these unfrozen as soon as we can so that we can identify if the pipe has been damaged. If the pipe is damaged, we can then replace this section of pipe, adding in extra insulation to ensure that these pipes are not freezing again. While you may be able to unfreeze these on your own, you will find that if you are not sure what you are doing, you could cause more issues to pop up!
