Frozen Pipe Burst Damage: Prevention & Restoration
Preventing Frozen Pipe Burst Damage
Temperatures in Texas can rapidly change from warm to freezing. It is advice received every time the temperatures dip below the freezing mark, "Make sure to drip your faucets." Good advice! Leaving a faucet open during freezing cold weather can help prevent frozen pipe water damage to your home. But do you know how many faucets to keep running at one time? And do you know which faucets are most effective when it comes to preventing frozen pipe burst damage to your home?
One sink is good. Usually the farthest sink from where the water comes into the house. If water comes in through the front of the house, look at the sink in the back of the house. That way, the water is flowing through all of the pipes on the underside of the house.
Another good idea to help prevent frozen pipe burst damage is to place an insulating dome or other covering on outdoor faucets and spigots to reduce the likelihood of frozen water pipes expanding and causing a costly leak.
