Pipe Tracing Articles and Information
Preventing your pipes from
freezing is a relatively simple process.
Surprisingly, many homeowners still make the
mistake of underestimating the effects
of cold weather on pipes, and end up with
thousands of dollars in damage, not to mention a
damaged pipe in need of repair. When
water freezes within a pipe, it stops the flow
of fluid and exerts a pressure of over
2,000 pounds per square inch, causing
the pipe to burst. A burst pipe releases 100
gallons of water per hour, causing
severe damage to your home.

hasn’t just been about holiday
festivities and hot cocoa; for
many, the season has taken a nasty turn.
Dropping temperatures across the
nation have caused mounting problems from
dangerous road conditions to freezing pipes.
In Nebraska, an emergency
cleaning company reported as many as five
calls a day for help with
recovering from the damages caused by burst
pipes. Many residents have had
to evacuate their homes and many businesses
are closing their doors.
