Frozen Pipe Repair
There are many reasons why a burst pipe can occur. The extreme weather in Colorado can create the ideal situation for frozen pipes. When the temperatures drop too low, this can cause a rapid freezing of the water that is sitting in the pipes and lines running through your home. If that water freezes, it turns to ice. The ice expands, pushing the pipe out with it. Eventually, the metal or other material cannot handle the pressure and they burst. This causes water to rush out of the pipes and across surfaces which will damage your home and your furnishings very rapidly.
If you have a burst pipe right now, your first step is to find the main water valve shutoff to turn off the water flowing into your home. If there is a shutoff valve close to the burst pipe, turn that off as well.
Next, call our team. We can be there quickly to help you in this situation. If the pipes are frozen, we may be able to treat the frozen area properly and immediately. When we do this, we may be able to avoid breakage of the line and bursting pipes.
How Can You Avoid Burst Pipes?
A burst pipe can be devastating. You may not even know one is occurring until there is a significant amount of water flowing into your home – or even hours afterwards. When you have a flood situation like this, there is the risk of mold and structural damage as well. It’s best to avoid this when you can.
First, be sure to keep an eye on rapidly dropping, or very cold temperatures. You want to ensure that the furnace remains on whenever the temperature is below 40 degrees in your home. This helps to minimize risk.
However, you have pipes that run in extreme areas that may not get enough heat, such as under bathroom and kitchen cabinets. Keep the doors to those cabinets open. This minimizes the cold area.
If you know temperatures are going to drop significantly, it is also helpful to keep a very light stream of water flowing through the lines at all times.
Second, be sure to keep your water lines properly maintained. Every few years, have a team of licensed technicians out to inspect your water lines, drains, and sewers to make sure they are in good condition. Strong, modern piping can also help to reduce the risk of bursts like this. Our team can help you with this.
Insulate Insulate Insulate
Let our team insulate your pipes for you as well. This is a very simple process that adds foam insulation around critical pipes. By doing this, we can safely reduce the risk that those pipes will become damaged because it helps to prevent freezing from occurring in the first place. Let our professionals help you to get this taken care of right away.

What Else Can Cause A Pipe to Burst?
There are other potential causes of burst lines. Clogs can be one of the causes of burst pipes. Though it takes a significant backup to do this, it can be a reason for your pipes to break. More often than not, a clog can create a leaky pipe. A clog can occur in any of the sewer or drain lines that run through your home. When it happens, it can cause water to back up. Coupled with cold weather, that can further increase the potential of a burst pipe. Our team can clear away clogs to help prevent this from happening.
Chemical drain cleaners are another key risk in our area. It is not recommended to use these cleaners because they damage the pipes by weakening the interior pipe walls. As a result, they can create thin patches inside the pipe that would make it more susceptible to bursting.
