Abacus Plumbing in Houston offers great plumbing services if you do have frozen pipes, but there are several ways you can prevent pipes from freezing.

  • Make sure the water to the sprinkler system is off and the vales are open.
  • Cover outdoor faucets and pipes are covered with an insulated cover and pipe insulation. You can also use blankets – just make sure all of the exposed faucet and pipes are well covered.
  • Remove garden hoses from the faucets
  • Open cabinet doors, especially near the exterior walls, to allow warm air flow.
  • See our Blog article for more suggestions to prevent frozen pipes.
