Plumbing: avoid freezing pipes that cause a mess

Plumbing: avoid freezing pipes that cause a mess
Winters in Southern Oregon are pleasant compared to other more Northern areas, but the cold can still get intense enough to freeze water in unprotected pipes.

Guess which pipes tend to lack insulation? That’s right: those in older homes and apartments. As you can probably guess, when water in these pipes freezes, it swells and puts pressure on those old pipes, putting them at risk of cracking – or, worse, bursting apart entirely.

Call us today at Spartan Plumbing (541) 500-1787. We will help you get a strategy to cover your pipes or replace the old ones BEFORE they burst or crack.

Freezing and bursting pipes can be a real mess and cause havoc. Ideally, you want to insulate these pipes, but if that beyond your budget, make sure you leave your taps slightly open during freezing weather. This will keep water flowing in the pipes, so that won’t stick in one place long enough to freeze there. It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s better than nothing.
