Pipes freezing in unheated areas of your home?

Exposed pipes in the basement are rarely in danger of freezing because they are in a heated portion of the home. But plumbing pipes in an unheated area, such as an attic, crawl space, and garage, are at risk of freezing.  Taking preventive measures before winter sets in can reduce and eliminate the risk of frozen pipes and other cold-weather threats.

This includes

  • Exposed pipes in unheated areas of the home.
  • Pipes running near basement windows or doors.
  • Pipes located in exterior walls.
  • Any plumbing on the exterior of the home.

Often, inexpensive foam pipe insulation is enough for moderately cold climates. For severe climates, opt for wrapping problem pipes with thermostatically controlled heat tape.

Under-Insulated Wallsfrozen pipes, slinger,

If pipes traveling in exterior walls have frozen in the past (tell-tale signs include water damage, mold, and moisture build-up), it’s probably because of inadequate or improperly installed insulation.

For people leaving their homes for an extended period of time in winter, additional measures should be taken to adequately protect the home from frozen pipes.

  • Make sure the furnace is set no lower than 55 degrees.
  • Shut off the main water supply and drain the system by opening all faucets and flushing the toilets.

Frozen Hoses

A frozen garden hose can cause more damage than a busted hose; it can actually burst a pipe on the inside of your home. When the water in the hose freezes, it expands, increasing pressure throughout your whole plumbing system. As part of your regular seasonal maintenance, garden hoses should be disconnected, drained, and stored before the first hard freeze.

If you can, install frost proof spigots, but if you don’t have frost-proof spigots, close the interior shut-off valve leading to that faucet, open and drain the spigot, and install a faucet insulator. Don’t forget, outdoor kitchens need winterizing, too, to prevent damage to their plumbing system.

Signs that you may have a Sewer Drain Clog

Sewer drain clog is a very serious problem that can be considered a plumbing emergency.  Since the water has no place to go it will all come back up through the household plumbing in one way or another.

When you have a sewer drain clog you should not use any of the plumbing in the home until the stoppage is cleared.If you suspect that you have a sewer drain clog it is important to confirm this and clear it right away. There are several ways to verify a sewer drain clog.
Multiple fixtures are clogged A very obvious sign of a sewer drain clog is when more than one plumbing fixture back up at the same time. The toilets in particular are affected by this, but other fixtures can also be involved . If you suspect that you have a sewer drain clog start by checking other fixtures in the home.
Toilets have the most direct path to the sewer and the biggest drain line in the house ,so if there is a problem with the sewer drain you will notice it is here. It is rare to have a main line sewer stoppage and the toilet are working correctly.
Tub and shower are other drains typically affected by a main sewer line stoppage are those in the tub and shower . This is due to the that they sit lower down than say a sink drain.
