Winters in the Midwest typically come with some pretty harsh conditions; Blizzards, seemingly endless stretches of snow fall, and of course, freezing temperatures. It’s during these winter months that our homes become susceptible to a number of potential disasters, including frozen pipes. Frozen pipes in your home have a high probability of causing serious damage if left unfixed. When water freezes in a pipe, it expands and begins exerting pressure at about 2,000 pounds per square inch. Not many pipes, especially PVC pipes, can contain that type of pressure for long. It can rupture at any time and become a time bomb, unnoticed until the ice begins to thaw, at which point you’ll have a major flood on your hands.
Most homeowners will do whatever they can to squeeze out as much life as possible from their old systems, making patch repairs or paying for multiple quick fixes, to try and save money versus the cost of replacement.
