Edmonton’s Guide to Prevent Frozen Water Pipes

If you have a frozen pipe, it’s important to take the right steps to thaw it to avoid damage to the pipe, line or plumbing system. Customers can assist in diagnosing the problem by turning on all the faucets inside the house and flushing each toilet. If there is no water flowing from any fixture and there is no known water main break in your area it is likely that you have a frozen service line outside your home on your property. Repair costs associated with frozen pipes are the responsibility of the homeowner so to prevent a frozen pipe, the best thing you can do is to keep your home heated at normal levels.

A few suggestions to prevent a potential problem are to insulate the outside lines: wrap any water lines near outer walls or doors with insulation. You can also use towels or blankets, secured with duct tape, to help prevent pipes from freezing. Keep the water flowing: frequently drawing from the tap, or leaving a small trickle running from a tap, may prevent freezing because it creates a constant flow. Turn off outdoor hoses: double check your outside hose bibs to ensure they are closed off; if they freeze, they can burst and cause water to drain from your home.
