To prevent pipes from freezing, insulate all outdoor and exposed pipes using quality insulation materials, ensuring complete coverage and protection.


How To Thaw Frozen Pipes

If there is no water in your fixtures at all, you most likely have frozen or burst pipes. If you know you have a frozen pipe, try these tricks to help thaw them out.

  • Turn off the main water valve to the house and open a faucet to allow thawed water to flow. Open the lowest hot and cold taps in your home.
  • Wrap towels soaked in warm water around the pipes or purchase electric pipe warmers. You can soak towels with snow collected and heated on the stove or microwave. You can also drain water from your hot water tank. If you do this and your tank is electric, make sure to turn the tank off at the electric panel to prevent the elements from burning out.
  • DO NOT use any open flame or electric heater directly to the piping as this could cause electrocution or present a fire hazard.
