Frozen Pipe Service In Geneva
One of the dangers homeowners face in winter is frozen water pipes. Frozen pipes are not a common problem in newer construction homes, but older homes tend to be at a higher risk because of older insulation and lack of winterizing techniques when they were originally built. When pipes freeze, water flow is stopped, leading to ice forming and expanding. This can cause the sides of your pipes to expand and possibly break. When the pipes break and thaw the water starts to flow again, leaking out where you don’t want it to. If you are experiencing frozen or burst pipes, call MAS Plumbing immediately.

Winterizing Water Lines & Preventative Measures
Ensuring that your pipes are well insulated is vital to prevent them from freezing. This is especially important on pipes on outside walls and in the basements. However, pipe insulation is not the only thing to watch out for. Exterior fixtures are more vulnerable to the cold than pipes found inside the walls. Outside fixtures, such as faucets, often have a shut-off valve on the inside of the home. To winterize these fixtures we recommend that you close the shut-off valve and then open the fixture to allow any water to drain.
The most important step you can take to prevent your pipes from freezing is ensuring that the temperature inside your home never drops below 55 degrees. If you are going to be out of town during the winter months, we recommend that you open any cabinets that house pipes on an outside wall. Keeping a slow stream of water can also help prevent your pipes from freezing. However, if you notice no water coming out or a slow-running faucet stops, it may mean a pipe has frozen. In the event of frozen pipes, calls us immediately. Our team will then discuss with you ways of starting the defrosting process while we are on our way out.
