Avoid water damage from frozen pipes!

Frozen pipes can lead to costly damage if they're not fixed quickly and properly.

Is your plumbing to code?

Plumbing that is not to code can delay work, or lead to costly plumbing problems in the future. Hire a licensed plumber with experience.

Is the workmanship professional?

Poor workmanship can lead to subpar results, and repairs sooner than necessary. Hire a plumber with an established reputation.

Is the work guaranteed?

Professional plumbing companies offer a guarantee/warranty. Ensure you hire a plumber that is willing to stand behind their work.

I recently renovated my bathroom and was in need of a plumber. I was referred to E. Vaillancourt Plumbing and feel very fortunate that I was. My experience with them has been totally professional and informative. Dave, one of Brian's plumbers, arrived on time and explained all options. I'm a contractor and have never seen quality like theirs before. I will definitely be using Brian's company again.

Do you have frozen pipes?

If you have a frozen water pipe and it hasn’t ruptured yet, you have to act quickly. You can turn on every faucet in your house and if water flows freely from all of them except one, you likely have an isolated problem. If two or more faucets are affected, the problem is more widespread. If you attempt to thaw a frozen pipe yourself, never use a blowtorch or open flame which can result in a fire or explosion. If you’re unsure of what to do, always call a professional to resolve the problem quickly and safely- some things aren’t worth risking a DIY repair!

Frozen pipes can be a nightmare! Built up pressure can cause the pipe to burst, resulting in serious damage to your home. The insurance company might deny a claim citing negligence on your part. When you suspect a frozen pipe, it’s best not to take chances. Request a job estatimate from Vaillancourt Plumbing & Drains now!

Frequently Asked qustions

Do you have questions about frozen plumbing pipes?

Find answers to some of the most frequently asked frozen plumbing pipe questions...

How do you prevent frozen water pipes?

If you have water pipes that are exposed to temperatures of 0 degrees celsius or less, such as exterior hose bibs in the winter, you should turn the water off to those faucets and then open the faucets to drain any water.

To help prevent pipes from freezing you can wrap them in insulation. There are numerous pipe insulation products available. Visit your your local hardware store to learn more.

At what temperature will pipes unfreeze?

Frozen pipes will start to thaw at 20 degrees celsius.

How long does it take to thaw a frozen pipe?

Thawing a frozen water pipe can take 30 to 45 minutes. If you have a frozen pipe, contact a local plumber immediately. When water turns into ice it expands which can cause pipes to crack and burst which will lead to water damage if not addressed in a timely manner.

How long does it take for a pipe to freeze and burst?

Assuming a temperature of 20 degrees celsius or less, and the water pipe is not in use, it will take approximately 4 to 5 hours for a water pipe to freeze and burst.
