WHAT IS THE REASON FOR A LEAKING PIPE?

The reason for the leaking drain pipe may lie in frozen and burst lines due to the temperature drop below zero. While all pipe materials can withstand freezing temperatures, each has its limits. That is, the water turns into ice and increases in volume by 9%, filling more space in lines compared to the liquid state. The ice, in turn, creates a high pressure that the pipes cannot withstand and therefore burst. The most commonly freezing pipes are basement piping, outdoor lines, and those without insulation.

Anyway, the sooner you turn off the water at the shutdown valve and contact Delta Plumbing & Heating experts, the sooner they can inspect and fix the damage. We kindly offer our professional support instead of solving the problem yourself, as taking the wrong steps in repairs can make things more challenging.

FIVE SIGNS YOU NEED A PLUMBING INSPECTION

Undoubtedly, only plumbing inspection specialists know how to check the piping system properly in case a homeowner suspects frozen pipes. Therefore, you need to know common alarming signs that require you to seek the plumber:

No water coming out of faucet

If water doesn’t flow from several faucets, it most likely has frozen. As a result, the system does not have enough pressure to push it through. This may indicate freezing in a particular section or massive blockage due to ice expansion.

Icy residue around pipes

Ice or condensation coating often indicates pipe frozen from the inside in a particular section. Consequently, water can’t flow there. Moreover, if there is no crack now, it will soon appear without the timely help of a plumber.

Strong sewer smell

Frozen sewer lines prevent wastewater from flowing, which leads to an unpleasant smell in a house. This problem calls for the immediate help of reliable professionals, as the line collapse significantly damages a homeowner, bringing a big mess and additional costs.

Unusual sounds

You can also identify frozen pipes by hearing clanging, gurgling, or banging sounds. This happens due to pressure changes or when the ice melts and moves through the pipes. If you hear these strange sounds, chances are the plumber will have to replace the line or its section after an inspection.

Cracks on the pipe

A sure sign of a frozen drain pipe is a crack, which appears due to increased pressure. If you don’t invite a plumber or at least, do not turn off the water before the thaw, even one crack can lead to extensive water damage in your home. In addition, freezing weakens pipes significantly, making them more vulnerable to bursting.

Our experts are ready to inspect the drain pipes in your home as soon as you suspect they are freezing. No matter how severe the problem is, we know the ways to fix it immediately and permanently by applying all our knowledge and experience.

HOW TO PERFORM DRAIN PIPE REPAIR?

If you’re looking for quick ways to fix the drain pipe before the plumbers arrive, one of the following might be the way to go.

  • Epoxy putty. Although epoxy putty works as a short time fix, it can seal a leaking pipe. Before applying epoxy, ensure that the damaged area of the pipe is clean and dry – water prevents the epoxy from drying.
  • Fiberglass tape. Fiberglass tape with polyurethane is a more durable patch and is often used with epoxy putty. The water-activated resin solidifies around the line, and leakage slows down. Using this method, you also need to clean, dry, and sand the area around the damage to make the surface more adhesive. In addition, you will need to shine a UV light on the pipe or expose it to direct sunlight to cure it.
  • Rubber and silicone tape. Rubber and silicone repair tape suitable for minor water leaks. You should wrap the tape around the damaged area and make sure the wrap is tight. Otherwise, water will continue to leak.
  • Hose clamps and rubber tape. This short-term repair also works by compressing to seal off the leak. Therefore, you need to wrap the damaged area, unfasten the clamps and tighten them around the damaged area.

As you can see, these repair methods are suitable for temporarily fixing a leak in an emergency. However, it is worth contacting specialists for quality repairs who replace damaged areas so that a burst or water leak never happens again.

WHEN IS A DRAIN PIPE REPLACEMENT NEEDED?

Homeowners without appropriate skills may only suspect it’s time to change pipes after noticing the signs of freeze or burst mentioned above. After all, those signs may indicate other problems for which there are other solutions. Only professional plumbers can inspect the system, assess the severity of the damage, and determine if a drain pipe replacement is needed.

Delta Plumbing & Heating experts have extensive experience inspecting and fixing frozen pipes. Consequently, they make checks and repair quickly and efficiently, getting your pipes to work again for a long time.

HOW TO REPAIR BURST WATER PIPE AND PREVENT FREEZING AGAIN?

For maximum quality repairs, the best solution is to contact qualified specialists. After all, frozen and burst pipes are not among the plumbing problems the average homeowner can handle. Besides, choosing the wrong pipe material or fittings can make things worse, leading to more damage in your home and costs.
