Frozen Pipes Repair
Don’t let frozen pipes get you bent out of shape!
Our brutal winters aren’t kind to pipes. The battering icy air and bitter North Country cold can have damaging consequences for property owners. Frozen water expands so much that it carries a pressure of more than two thousand pounds per square inch. If you detect signs of frozen pipes or leaking water, to avoid further damage, immediately call our plumbing professionals 24-hours a day. We are always open!
Thawing is not a straightforward process and each situation is very unique. We will diagnose the best pipe-thawing process for you and use the latest sophisticated equipment. Once we’ve thawed the pipe, we’ll try to replace the smallest section of any damaged piping possible – to keep the job at a minimal cost to you.
Electric Current Thawing
A choice for frozen metal pipes
Passing low voltage, high current AC electricity through a frozen water pipe is a quick way of thawing it. With this method, it is possible to thaw iron or copper pipes concealed in building walls, or buried in the ground.
This method requires unfrozen water under standard pressure on one side of the frozen area, and an open faucet on the other side (the downstream). It is only necessary to heat the pipe enough to melt a thin film of ice on the inside of the pipe, as the warmer water in the pipe before the blockage will seep through and quickly melt the rest.
Hot Water Jetting
Defrosts as well as cleans
We use high pressure hot water jetting units to clear frozen sewer or water lines, as well to clean them, as this method breaks up the frozen ice trapped inside the pipe and thaws it quickly and safely.
Save your septic system, save time and money
Steam thawing involves using a dry steam that quickly and efficiently thaws frozen lines with no risk of explosive damage to the pipe.
