How to deal with frozen pipes
Step 1: Figure out the point where the pipe has frozen: Now, it is impossible for you to figure out the exact area where the pipe has frozen. Once you hire us, we can figure out the affected area. We generally do this by first checking the water supply at different sections of the house. If there is no water supply in the first floor, it may mean there is a blocked pipe connecting the ground floor and the second floor. If there is no water connection in the whole house, it means that the main water line is frozen. For this, we can also turn on the water faucets. Once we do that, water starts leaking from the pipes and we understand the area that is frozen.
Step 2: We apply heat to the frozen pipe: once we have figured out the affected area, we apply heat to the frozen pipe. This can be done with the help of electric heat pads, electric heat dryers, portable heaters or towels soaked in hot water. You should note that this doesn’t mean that we use any kind of direct heat on the pipe. Any blowtorch or candle or any direct source of fire can blow the entire pipeline system of your home. Hence, we use only indirect methods of melting the ice very carefully.
Step 3: Always be very careful while doing this: We as professionals, take a lot of care while we are repairing frozen pumps. However, if ever you want to try it yourself, you should be very careful. In case the pipe bursts because of excess heat, make it a point to call us immediately as it might result in a flood in your house. we will be there to mend the pipe and clear out the frozen part as well.
