How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes aren’t quite as common here in South Jordan, UT as they are in towns like Minneapolis or Boston, but our winter nights are still quite cold, and when you have water in your plumbing system, frozen pipes are often the result. Not only do they cut off the flow of water to your system, they can cause your pipes to burst, which can turn a minor problem into a major headache very quickly. Now is the time to work on preventing that, when temperatures are still comparatively warm and you can take measures to stop frozen pipes before they start. Here’s a few tips on how.

Outdoor Pipes

Pipes located outdoors — faucets, sprinkler pipes and the like — are under the biggest threat of freezing. Luckily, you likely won’t have use for them in the winter months, and can thus protect them by keeping them drained. Shut off the water to any outdoor lengths of pipe, then turn on the faucets and let the water drain out of them. Leave the water off throughout the colder months. You can turn it on again in the spring when the weather warms and you’ll have need to outdoor water again.

Indoor Pipes

Indoor pipes are usually better protected than outdoor pipes, but it still pays to identify trouble sport and get them addressed. Pipes running along outside walls can be checked and insulated if necessary, and pipes that extend out from the walls can usually have the empty space around them sealed with caulk. During the winter, leave all pertinent faucets on just a trickle. The running water will keep the pipes from freezing, and the small additional cost engendered by the tactic will pay dividends by avoiding expensive repairs.
