Leaking Pipe Repair
Water leaks can cause potential damage to your home and mold or mildew growth. Preventing all pipe leaks is not always possible, but you can be aware of the signs of a leak. This allows you to spot problems early and call a professional for pipe repair at the first sign of trouble. Pipes can become damaged and start leaking in a number of ways.
Pipe leaks may be caused by:
- Corrosion with age
- Damaged seals
- Improper installation
- High water pressure
- Ground shifting
- Loose connectors
A musty odor in the house, a jump in water bills, and wet spots are all indications of a possible pipe leak. Even if you don’t see a lot of water, you could have a small leak that is hidden from sight. Our plumbers will track down the leak and provide efficient pipe repair.
Frozen & Burst Pipes
Unfortunately, problems with pipes freezing and bursting are common in our area of the country. As the temperature falls, the water inside the pipes can freeze. When ice forms inside your pipes, it expands, which creates pressure on the inside walls of the pipe. If the pressure gets too high, the pipe will burst. This can cause a serious problem and property damage.
Frozen and burst pipes can almost always be prevented by protecting the pipes from cold air. Installing pipe insulation can prevent your pipes from freezing and help you avoid a disaster, as well as the cost of repairing the pipe and associated damage to your home. If you have a small leak, get it fixed quickly, because cracks in pipes make them more likely to burst.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
As temperatures drop, the risk of frozen pipes surges, potentially leading to costly damages and inconveniences. O'Leary Plumbing, Heating & Electrical in East Troy is dedicated to helping you safeguard your property. Here's how you can prevent pipes from freezing:
1. Insulate: Shield exposed pipes with insulation sleeves or wrapping to minimize heat transfer and maintain adequate temperatures.
2. Seal Cracks: Identify and seal any gaps or cracks in the walls, floors, and foundation where cold air might infiltrate and compromise your piping system.
3. Let Faucets Drip: Allowing faucets to drip during extreme cold spells can relieve pressure within the pipes, reducing the likelihood of freezing.
4. Keep Heating On: Maintain a consistent indoor temperature, even when you're away. Setting the thermostat no lower than 55°F can help prevent pipes from succumbing to freezing temperatures.
5. Open Cabinet Doors: Permit warm air to circulate around the plumbing, particularly in areas with sink pipes, by leaving cabinet doors open.
By implementing these practical measures, you can safeguard your property from the perils of frozen pipes. For professional guidance and expert solutions, contact O'Leary Plumbing, Heating & Electrical today. We're committed to protecting your home, so you can enjoy peace of mind throughout the winter season.
