Frozen Pipes Plumbing Draper Utah
- Let water slowly trickle out of faucets from pipes that run on an exterior wall or are in unheated areas.
- Insulate pipes in unheated areas of your home as well as pipes that sit against outside walls.
- Leave your heat on with cabinet doors open to allow heat to circulate around uninsulated pipes.
If you realize your pipes are frozen, you should immediately shut off your water main to reduce pressure on the frozen pipes. This will also minimize flooding if your pipes burst. If you can access the frozen pipes, using a hair dryer or other small heater can thaw the pipes. If you think your pipes might be frozen and you want to be safe, call Pando and we can use our professional equipment and heat gun to solve the problem. After fixing the problem our first priority will be to identify and fix the problem that caused the pipes to freeze in the first place.
