Call Drain Masters for Immediate Help Today!
Alaska is no stranger to long months of freezing-cold temperatures, and that means it’s not uncommon for pipes to freeze over. Frozen pipes are a serious problem for homeowners—as the water inside turns to ice and expands, it causes immense pressure in the line which eventually results in the pipe itself cracking or even bursting. When the water thaws, you’re greeted with serious leaks or flooding in your property or even in your home itself.

We Fix All Types of Frozen Pipes
Your water lines may be some of the most serious and dangerous pipes to freeze, but they’re not the only ones which can experience these problems. Your drain lines and sewer lines can also freeze and cause a number of different problems. When materials freeze, they often expand, contort, or become brittle, which can cause everything from small cracks to large bursts and even complete separations. While metal pipes are more prone to freezing, plastic pipes are more prone to suffering serious damage as a result of freezing temperatures.
We fix all types of frozen pipes, including:
- Water mains
- Water lines
- Irrigation lines
- Drain lines
- Sewer lines
The easiest way to prevent pipe damage is to make sure any exposed outdoor plumbing is properly insulated and protected from the freezing cold outdoor temperatures. This includes installing insulation on any exposed pipes in order to keep the coldest outdoor temperatures away. Likewise, installing caps or covers over any outdoor hose connections, water taps, or spigots prevents the metal fixture itself from freezing over and the freezing cold temperatures from transferring into the water in your lines, thus causing it to freeze over. It’s also important to try and make sure any plumbing running through your walls is properly protected as well. Keep an eye out for any areas which are exposed, such as those which run out of your home and down into your foundation, even for just a foot or two, as they could cause a significant area of your plumbing inside your walls to freeze as well.
