Water has the unusual characteristic of expanding when it freezes. This freezing exerts enormous pressure on everything that contains it, such as plastic and metal pipes. Regardless of how strong a container is, increasing water can cause pipes to burst. Outdoor frozen pipes, swimming pool lines, and water sprinkler lines are examples of pipes that are exposed to extreme cold.
Unheated interior locations such as basements and underground spaces, garages, or kitchen cabinets may have water supply pipes. Pipes that run against uninsulated or poorly insulated external walls are susceptible to frozen pipes.
Pipes that are left vulnerable to extremely cold temperatures are more prone to freezing and permanent havoc in general. It is critical to cover your pipes as soon as possible, preferably before the temperature drops in winter season.
Frozen water pipes may create big breaches and disasters if they go undiscovered. A single burst pipe can result in a building losing 4-8 liters of water every minute, costing hundreds of dollars to fix. It is important to take the necessary precautions to protect your pipes in order to avoid such a catastrophe.
How can I keep my pipes from freezing?
Protect your pipes and hoses from freezing before the winter season arrives by following these guidelines.
