Preventing Frozen Pipes

With the temperatures dropping, it’s important to put measures in place to prevent your pipes from freezing. Frozen pipes can cause a lot of problems in your home that will require emergency plumbing repairs. C. Lee Services shares a few tips below:

Insulate Pipes

First of all, if you have any exposed pipes in your garage or basement, be sure to insulate them from the cold. This can be done with some pipe insulation that you can find at any hardware store, but some towels and duct tape will do if you don't want to go out. For a more effective and permanent solution, however, it’s best to reach out to your local plumber in Akron, OH.

Turn Off Outdoor Fixtures

Another thing you can do to avoid weather-related plumbing repairs is to turn off your outdoor faucets and cover them with insulation. You can do this by locating the shutoff valve for your outdoor plumbing. After you do, open your outdoor faucets and let the water drain so it won't be trapped in your pipes.

Keep Faucets On

If you're afraid of your pipes freezing while you aren't home, you can turn your faucets on to a tiny trickle. This will keep the water in your pipes moving, which will make it much less likely to freeze. If you're going to be out of town for a few weeks or longer, shut off all the water in your home and open the faucets just like you would with your outdoor plumbing. Your plumbing company can help you find the main shutoff valve for your home's waterline, but you should know where this is in case you need to shut everything off in an emergency.

If you do have any frozen pipes or you need any other plumbing services this winter, don't hesitate to contact C. Lee Services. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have about your home's plumbing or visit your home if you have a plumbing emergency. Contact us today to explore our full range of services.

Do I Have to Be Home? We typically request that our customers, or an adult at the very least are home to grant us access to the pipes as needed, but they do not need to be home for the entirety of our visit on their property while repairs are being finished.

Will I Need To Move Furniture? Normally we won’t require our customers to move furniture or household items, but if there are a lot of items blocking access to the pipes, we will need to move some of them out of the way.

How Long Will You Need To Fix My Pipes? The time needed to finish our work is will be defined based on the damage we find in the pipes, and repairs can be as short as a few hours or a couple of days depending on what is required of our team.

When Do I Pay For Your Services? Customers will pay us for our repair and cleaning services after we finish our work on their property. In addition, we offer options for financing as needed.
