CITY OF HORNELL NEWS

 

FROZEN PIPES are one of the most distressing problems a homeowner can encounter.

 

Tips to prevent frozen pipes:

 

*Keep garage doors and outside doors closed and plug up drafts.

*Open cold water, to just a trickle, to keep water moving in the pipes to help prevent icing.

*Set the thermostat to at least 55 degrees F both day and night - no lower. Higher is even better, especially if your home is not well-insulated.

*Keep doors to all rooms open to allow heat to flow to all areas, which helps to warm the pipes in the walls.

*Open the cabinets under kitchen and bathroom sinks so that the warmer air temperature of each room can flow around the plumbing.

 

IF YOU ENCOUNTER A FROZEN PIPE:

 

*Most often, frozen pipes are those running against exterior walls or where the water enters through the foundation.

*Apply heat to the affected area using an electric hair dryer or portable space heater. Other options include wrapping an electric heating pad or towels soaked in hot water around the pipes.

*Keep the faucet open; running water through the pipe will help melt the ice.

 

WHAT NOT TO DO IF A PIPE IS FROZEN:

*Never use an open flame to thaw your pipes. Open flame torches are the most common cause of home fires related to pipe thawing.

 

IF A FROZEN PIPE BURSTS:

*Locate the house shut-off valve and turn it off. Usually, the shut-off valve is located on the water service pipeline immediately after it enters the basement wall.

*Contact a plumber for repairs.
