Do You Have Frozen Pipes? Our CT Plumbers Can Thaw, Repair and Help Prevent Your Pipes From Freezing - Quickly!
When it comes to plumbing issues, a frozen pipe is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. In locations such as Eastern Connecticut, where temperatures often fall below the freezing mark, extra caution should be taken. Although most modern homes are insulated with indoor pipes, there are thousands of beautiful historic CT homes dating back four centuries that are still fitted with early pipes, etc. and are more susceptible to freezing and bursting.
No matter what material pipes your home uses, within only a few minutes, a frozen pipe that has burst can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Therefore, prevention should be your main concern each winter. The Connecticut winters can be especially harsh. Proper insulation, piping, and winterizing services, especially for cottages and remote properties, is key to protecting your investment.

What Should You Do If Your Pipes Freeze?
If you have frozen pipes, do not turn on the hot water. The first thing you should do is shut down your home’s water source. If you are unable to do so on your own, our dedicated team of friendly technicians is here to guide you. Immediately afterward, you can take steps to defrost your pipes while you wait for CT’s dependable and fully-licensed plumbing team to arrive, including wrapping warm wet clothes or a heating pad (if there is no leak) around the pipe. Space heaters and hair dryers can also be effective for thawing your pipes. DO NOT attempt to use a blow torch or open flame on your pipes as they pose a fire hazard.
