Plumbing Inspection And Diagnosis
Before bone-chilling weather commences it’s best to be proactive and prepare your home by winterizing both the exterior and interior of your home. For outdoors, ensure the housekeeping has been completed like cleaning out your gutters, disconnecting your water hose, drain, and insulating the outdoor faucet also known as your house bib, and lastly turning off any shut–off valves of plumbing fixtures that will go unused especially if you have a non-furnished basement suite. For indoors, you risk being more susceptible to clogs as the water expands when frozen and creates blockages that stifle water flow. Frozen pipes will be evident too in fluctuating water pressure due to your water supply lines being smothered. As the seasons change, it's crucial to get at least an annual plumbing inspection to avoid frozen pipe repair. Mississauga, ON homeowners, should remain diligent and not delay in their home's plumbing upkeep.

Frequently Asked Questions About Frozen Pipe Repair
What Do-It-Yourself Hacks Can I Use To Thaw Out Frozen Pipes?
There are some home remedies you can try, like using a blow dryer, space heater, or heat lamp to thaw out the frozen length of the pipe. You can even wrap your pipes in thermostatic heat tape on more troublesome spots. But note—these are temporary solutions and will do next to nothing for cracked or burst pipes. We don’t recommend blazing away the frozen ice using propane torches as this is a shortcut that will only put your home and yourself at a hazardous fire risk.
The best thing you can do yourself is to open up your frozen pipes to the heat in the rest of your home as much as possible, such as by opening cupboard doors, and keeping an eye out for leaks or damage, which are signs you need service from a plumber.
What Are Some Red Flags I Have Frozen Pipes That Have Burst?
Educating yourself about freezing pipes is best so you don’t panic after seeing water damage. If you do face a scenario where your pipes have ruptured, first shut off the water supply by turning off the main shutoff valve to block the flow of water. Next, turn off your taps to drain out the lines completely to ensure pressure has been lessened so more pipes don’t randomly burst as you wait for a professional plumber to complete your frozen pipe repairs. Mississauga, ON residents, should keep a lookout for these telltale signs their pipes have burst:
- Loud popping sounds
- Fluctuating water pressure
- Discolored water
- Dripping noises behind walls
- Moisture damage
- Water puddles under sinks
- Skyrocketing utility bills
How Long Does It Take For Pipes To Freeze Over?
On average your water pipes will begin to glaciate below 15°C and it will take about 6 consecutive hours until they reach their peak and burst. If you know ahead of time that temperatures are dropping, one strategy you can use to prevent your pipes from freezing overnight is to leave your taps open at a slight drip, which will keep water flowing through your pipes and help stop them from freezing.
