Gino was great and would definitely work with him again. I was in a bit of a time crunch to replace my water heaters and he was able to do it same day! He is very prompt with replies and honest. Did not try to upsell anything. He is also very knowledgeable and told me how to maintain the new water heaters to prolong their use. You could tell he is a very hard working and honest plumber. Thanks again, Gino!

Gino was awesome. Very knowledgeable and honest. We had an issue with a dishwasher installation and called Gino to help with the situation. He was prompt and pointed out where the installers made a mistake. A less honest plumber could’ve easily taken advantage and made the unnecessary replacement of a valve to make their money. Not Gino.

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.

Superior Frozen Pipe Repair by Excellent Plumbing

At Excellent Plumbing, we've honed our methodology to tackle this chilly challenge head-on. While it might seem tempting to address the frozen issue with makeshift solutions, it's crucial to approach it with professional expertise. Our seasoned team employs advanced equipment and a wealth of experience to effectively and safely thaw pipes. Our aim is not just to provide a temporary fix, but to offer durable solutions that prevent recurrent freezing issues.

Being proactive is essential. Thus, we impart knowledge on effective pipe insulation techniques, suggest measures to protect exposed pipes, and recommend preventive measures to minimize the risks associated with freezing conditions.

  • 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.
