Plumbers Busy With Frozen Pipes

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA – The recent cold snap has made for a busy few days for plumbers in our area.

Many were slammed with calls to unclog frozen pipes and fix leaks.

Plumbers say one of the most common causes was from garden hoses that hadn't been disconnected.

If you have a frozen pipe, you may be able to fix it yourself.

Apply heat to the section of pipe using an electric heating pad, an electric hair dryer, or with towels soaked in hot water and wait until full pressure is restored.

If that doesn't work, call a licensed plumber.
