Hang Tight Minneapolis, Winter Is Almost Over!

Hang tight Minneapolis, you’ll only have to worry about freezing pipes for a few more days. But just in case you haven’t done so already, find out what you need to do in order to prevent this major plumbing disaster – a pipe burst.

 

  • If you have any pipes that are exposed to the outdoors, or freezing temperatures, make sure that they’re properly insulated.
  • Make sure your traps are turned on. Pressure builds up inside your pipes and if there’s no place for the water to go, it could freeze.
  • Wait until the weather is consistently above freezing to turn on the hose in your backyard. Turning the water valve on prematurely can also cause your pipes to freeze.

If your pipes are already frozen, your best bet is to call a plumber right away. Tampering with them can cause a bigger problem and this should be left to a professional. That’s where we come in!
