Frozen pipes are a serious problem especially in the brutal Winters of Durham. That’s why we provide frozen pipe repair in Durham, Cheltenham and the surrounding areas. If you have any of the following situations, you pipes may be frozen this winter:
- Pipes that run along exterior walls with little to no insulation.
- Outdoor pipes such as hose bibs, water sprinkler lines, and swimming pool supply lines.
- Water supply pipes in unheated areas such as basements, garages, enclosed porches, or crawl spaces, which may also lead to leaky pipes or burst pipes.
Let your frozen pipes go with a little assistance from a plumbing professional near Durham. Reliable Plumbing Heating and Drain Cleaning employees are experienced, licensed, and insured so you know you are getting quality work when we fix your pipes.
Signs Your Pipes May Be Frozen
Signs that your pipes may be frozen include frost on the exterior of the pipe, very little to no water coming out of the pipe, and strange smells coming from a faucet or drain that appears to be not working. You also want to find out from your neighbors about whether or not their faucets are having the same issues and if they don’t, then you can be sure your pipes are definitely frozen.
Of course, the temperature outside must be below 32 degrees fahrenheit for the pipes to freeze. If you see any of the above conditions in your pipes, give us a call immediately. If a frozen pipe bursts it becomes a much more difficult problem to fix. Additionally, you want to look out for your weather channel to find out some steps you can take to slow down your frozen pipes when the weather is predicted to reach 32 degrees or lower.
How To Prevent Frozen Pipes
A little prevention goes a long way in helping your pipes survive the winter. Try the following steps to keep your pipes flowing all year long:
- Remove, drain, and store outdoor hoses. Close the water supply lines that feed the hose bibs and open the hose bibs to let them drain.
- If you have water supply lines in the garage, keep the garage door closed.
- Leave the heat on in your home if traveling in the winter. Set the thermostat no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Let a little water drip from faucets that have exposed pipes when the temps are very low.

If frozen pipes are plaguing you, give us a call today and we’ll show up right away to unfreeze your frozen pipes. In extreme cold temperatures, the water supply in your home can be affected because of how the cold temperature causes things to contract inside the pipes.
Now, because ice carries more volume than water, when the weather is freezing cold, it can lead to increased and expanded pressure in the pipes. When this occurs, the frozen water tries to get out and bursts through the pipes.
