Gino is awesome and I would highly recommend him for any type of plumbing work. He knows what he is doing and has the best equipment to get the job done. I had a very intense and time consuming job where my main water valve (both of them actually) were not working and had to be replaced. The valves were also behind my water heater in a tiny small closet. Gino had coordinate with the city to shut off the water completely before he could remove the water heater and replace the valves. It took us 2 attempts to make it happen as the city couldn’t turn the water off. Gino was super flexible and came over on a very short notice. He finished the job in a record time and did an excellent, high quality work. Very responsive, honest and helpful. I am going to call him every time I have a plumbing problem. Thanks Gino once again!!!

Guarding Against Winter's Chill: Expert Frozen Pipe Solutions

In the chilly climate of  Lake Zurich, the physical behavior of water becomes a matter of concern for homeowners and businesses. As temperatures plummet, water in the plumbing lines starts to freeze, leading to expansion. This results in a substantial build-up of pressure within both metal and plastic pipes. Without timely intervention, the pressure can lead to cracks, spelling significant plumbing problems across residential and commercial spaces.

Certain pipes are more susceptible to the freezing menace. Exposed plumbing, such as those connected to outdoor facilities, or those running through non-heated areas like basements and garages, are particularly at risk. Additionally, pipes adjacent to poorly insulated walls bear the brunt during Illinois's frosty winter months.

The adverse effects of frozen pipes can significantly disrupt daily routines. Imagine preparing for a warm shower only to find out the pipes are frozen, or wanting to fill a pot for cooking and the tap yields nothing due to frozen water lines.

  • PROTECTING PIPES FROM FREEZING: TIPS FOR A COLD WINTER
  • EXCELLENT PLUMBING ADVISES: HOW TO TACKLE FROZEN WATER PIPES IN YOUR HOME

How Can You Ensure That The Pipes In Your Home Are Not At Risk Of Freezing?

There are measures to be taken before winter sets in to minimize the risk of pipes freezing. It's advised to disconnect, drain, and store garden hoses in a safe place. Importantly, if your home has internal shut-off valves, close them, open the exterior valves, and let the water flow out. This will allow the water in the pipes to expand freely, preventing situations where frozen pipes burst.

It's also recommended to insulate pipes that run through unheated areas, such as basements, attics, or garages, and even within cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. This helps avoid issues with frozen pipes.

If you're planning to be away from home during the coldest days, there are ways to safeguard your pipes. It's suggested to turn off the water supply, set the thermostat to 55 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, and leave the cabinet doors beneath sinks open, allowing warmth to circulate around the pipes.

What To Do When You Come Home And Find A Frozen Water Pipe?

Upon discovering a frozen pipe, try to gently warm it using a hairdryer, a heater wrapped around the pipe, or a small electric space heater. Avoid using devices with open flames, such as soldering torches or kerosene heaters. Start thawing the pipe closer to the faucet and make sure it remains open, allowing water to flow through the frozen pipes and assist in melting the ice inside.

If you feel the need for expert assistance, reach out to Excellent Plumbing. Our water supply and sewage experts are ready to assist when homeowners face challenges with their plumbing system, be it inside or outside the home. If a pipe burst in house occurs, our team is equipped to professionally address the aftermath of the rupture or leak, ensuring cleanup and drying of the affected areas.
