Frozen pipes? No problem!

12/15/2018 (Permalink)

Winter is on its way but the cold temps are already here. Frozen pipes are one of the most common issues home owners can face during the winter months. If your home has a tendency of having water pipes freeze over during winter months there are a few ways you can try to clear up that blockage! 

1). Keep the faucet dripping. This will help ease your pipes into having water flowing properly again. 

2). Apply heat to the affected section of the pipe with a heating pad or hair dryer. Doing this will slowly thaw out any ice that has formed in the pipe.

3). Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. 

Finally, if you noticed that you are still having problems after all of this it is probably best that you contact your nearest licensed plumber to come and take a look at it.
