Burst Pipe repair Service in Elk Grove Village IL

We often see the results of this situation in the form of burst or split pipes year-round! Sometimes, we get a call from a client that starts to use a hose faucet to water the lawn in May that finds a basement being flooded. At Stellar Plumbing, we have pipe thawing equipment to help get water supply piping thawed out. We can then repair or replace any piping that may have burst as a result of being frozen (the piping can expand and become split or separated from fittings when it is frozen).

Perhaps most importantly, we can try to help you prevent this from happening again! All too often, we find piping that is run in a poorly insulated chase or along an outside wall. We can see if there is a way to reroute the line or insulate it. Years ago, builders installed shut-off and drain valves for exterior hose faucets. It was common practice for a homeowner to shut off the water supply to the hose faucet and drain the water from it. Since that time, hose faucets have come along to save the builder money and the homeowner from having to do this simple maintenance. However, we are still believers in installing shut-off and drain valves along with frost-resistant valves. Let us upgrade your valve to protect it from freezing.

Our goal with frozen pipes is another part of our philosophy of repairing what is broken and preventing it from happening again!

Why Do Pipes Freeze?

When the temperature drops during the colder months of the year, the water inside the pipes expands and freezes, and the pressure that this expansion puts on the pipe’s walls eventually causes cracks and bursts. There are many factors that contribute to this freezing process, with inadequate insulation being one of the most common.

Lack of insulation causes pipes to quickly lose heat, which speeds up the process by which the water inside freezes. Additionally, pipes found in unheated or inadequately heated sections of a building — like basements, crawl spaces, and exterior walls — are more likely to freeze because of their increased exposure to cold air. Drafts or openings in the building’s construction that allow cold air to seep in and come into touch with the pipes, as well as extended periods of low usage, when water stays stagnant in the pipes and has more chance to freeze, can also contribute to freezing.
