6 Great Tips to Keep Pipes From Freezing

In San Marcos, you need to worry only about the water supply pipes, not the drain pipes. Water pipes are small, only about 1 inch in diameter or smaller. Drain pipes are 1 1/2 inches and larger and are usually made of plastic. Drain pipes carry wastewater, but they do not hold water and are not pressurized like water pipes, so freezing inside drains is not a concern.

  •  1. Keep the Heat On
  •  2. Allow the Faucet to Drip
  •  3. Keep Interior Doors Open
  •  4. Seal up Cracks and Holes
  •  5. Apply Heating Tape
  •  6. Add Extra Insulation

Cold temperatures can cause water pipes to freeze. Freezing in a pipe creates a lot of pressure inside the pipe and can cause the pipe to burst and likely lead to serious flooding, especially when there’s no one around to turn off the water. The best prevention against frozen pipes is to keep them warm enough to stay above the freezing point. You can do this with any one of six simple steps or, better still, a combination of measures.
