FROZEN PIPE THAWING

Frozen Pipe Thawing 
IF YOUR HOME IS SUFFERING FROM FROZEN PIPES, WHAT’S YOUR FIRST MOVE? 
It’s best to be prepared in case this happens to you this winter.

Take a look at the following steps if you need to take action. With Adams by your side, you won’t have to worry about a thing.
  • First, turn off the water at the shut-off valve.
  • Next, you need to open the faucet at the lowest point in the house. If you have a basement, we recommend a faucet there. When you do this, it allows water to drain out as the ice melts.
  • Lastly, you should heat the exterior of the pipe with a hair dryer. Be sure to slowly apply the heat. Move the hair dryer back and forth like you do when you’re drying your hair.
YOU SHOULD NEVER ATTEMPT TO THAW EXPOSED PIPES WITH AN OPEN FLAME, SUCH AS AN ACETYLENE TORCH. 
This could generate a spark or cinder that could cause a fire.

If you can’t seem to cut to the root of the problem, all you have to do is call on the certified professionals at Adams. Thanks to years in the industry, we’ll be able to promptly assess your hardware. From there, it’s only a matter of time before your home or business is running like normal again.
