Frozen pipes are a detrimental setback for homeowners and business owners alike. The freezing of pipes will not only freeze the flow of water, but it will also add an immense amount of pressure to your pipes, causing them to break or burst. Since winter will be upon us for a little longer, how can you stay ahead of this problem?
Answer: The best plumber in Warren is right here at Bison Plumbing! Let us take you through a few ways to avoid frozen pipes and get ahead of such an issue in your home or business:
Wrapping Pipes with Insulation Sleeves
In order to slow heat transfer in your pipes, and to keep heat contained in pipes during the winter, we suggest homeowners wrap their pipes with sleeves lined with insulation. We recommend this be done especially in crawl spaces, basements, cellars, and areas of the home or business that have exposed pipes.
Before Going on Vacation, Drain Your Water Systems
If you are going out of town between now and when the spring comes, we recommend you drain your water systems before you depart. You will be glad by taking this precautionary step should you be away and a temperature drop occurs. Doing so will not only avoid a potential disaster in your pipes, but it will save you some money in the long-run by shutting off your water line.
To Allow for Circulation, Let Water Drip from Faucets
Turning on your faucets slightly will allow a small amount of water to flow through your pipes. By allowing a constant flow of water to travel through your pipes, water cannot stay stagnant, and will not freeze. This preventable method could be crucial for nights that drop well below freezing temperatures (32 degrees Fahrenheit).

By setting a new standard in our industry we hope to raise all our competitors’ standards by being the best plumber around.
