Insulate The Plumbing
Measure the pipe section that was previously frozen. Cut a piece of foam insulation that is the same length. Wipe the pipe section off with a towel to eliminate any moisture that is on its exterior. Wrap the insulation around the pipe. Many types of foam insulation have a slit on one side of them and are preformed to wrap around pipes, making it simple to secure around the section of plumbing that is being treated.
Cut strips of thermal tape to cover the opening in the insulation. The insulation will help keep the pipe protected when the temperature is low. As an added precaution, turn the faucet on so that the water is slightly dripping when the temperature is supposed to dip below freezing. If you follow these tips, the water supply will not be likely to freeze again. To find out more, speak with a business like Brown Drain Service-The Original.
