Frozen Pipes in Valparaiso

Taking Care of Your Pipes During the Winter Months

Indiana winters are known to bring low to freezing temperatures. They are also known for causing frozen pipes or burst pipe to several homes and businesses. When this happens, make sure to contact Young Plumbing immediately. Our friendly staff can dispatch a Valparaiso plumber your way swiftly and can even guide you over the phone on how to turn the water off at the main shut-off valve in the event of a pipe burst to minimize wasting water until we arrive and repair the pipe.

Helpful Tips When Dealing with a Frozen Pipe

It may mean nothing more than an inconvenience, but a frozen pipe is actually a more serious plumbing issue than just a temporary water interruption. If you have a frozen pipe, we advise calling the professionals at Young Plumbing who know how to properly treat it. While you can trust that we will strive to arrive at your home promptly, there are also some things that you can do to help alleviate the problem.

Some helpful tips when dealing with a frozen pipe include:

  • If you wish to thaw a frozen pipe, you may be able to do so with a hand-held dryer. However, be sure to avoid using electrical appliances while standing in water as you could get electrocuted.
  • Open the tap to allow steam from the melting ice to escape.
  • Do not start thawing in the middle as the steam from the melting ice can cause the pipe to burst. Instead, thaw pipe starting from the faucet going backward toward the other end.
  • Never try to pour hot or boiling water directly on the pipe as this often results in pipe burst.
  • Never try to thaw a frozen pipe with an open flame. Not only will it damage the pipe but it could start a structure fire.

Many people think thawing a frozen pipe is something they can do on their own, but most don't understand how pipes freeze and why they burst. If you don’t have the proper knowledge on how to deal with a frozen pipe, it's best to just let a professional Valparaiso plumber from our team apply their expertise!
