Leak Detection Specialists Guide to Frozen Pipes





FROST PROTECTION

If the frost protection provided is insufficient for exceptional freezing conditions, or the premises are left unoccupied or without adequate heating, damage and leakage can often be avoided by shutting off the water supply and draining the system before the onset of freezing.

Did you know? The wrong thickness of insulating material provided is a common fault identified by many water company inspectors when checking systems!

When does a pipe burst due to freezing? Is it when it thaws out?

No, the pipe actually bursts (spilts open) when it freezes due to the expansion of water changing to ice, it is only when it thaws out that we realise it has burst by seeing the water leak out.

When water freezes it expands by about 10%. In order to protect against frost damage, mains and service pipes should be atleast 750mm beneath the surface of the ground.

If you do have a water leak, Leak Detection Specialists will accurately locate your water leak quickly and cost effectively with minimal disruption and damage to your property.
