Ideas for leaking, busted water pipes, plumbing points

(Talk1370.com) — Austin’s winter blast over the past week set a number of new records, including the all-time record for consecutive hours below freezing – a total of 144 hours between February 12 and February 18 at Camp Mabry.

As temperatures rise above freezing and the thaw begins, leaking pipes will begin to show themselves as water lines thaw out. Our friends at ABC Home & Commercial Services have some great information and tips on how to deal with frozen pipes, water heaters and more.

Some general advice: Do not shut anything off unless it is absolutely necessary, which would be if you know you have a busted pipe, or if you see water coming in through the ceilings, walls, floors cabinets, or anywhere from the outside of your home.

ABC will plan to update our customers once a day for the next few days. We think communication is key for both the short…

Here are some simple tips for different situations you may find yourself in:

If you have water service…
Water Main & Faucets
Keep your water main and faucets open. For your faucets, make sure both the hot and cold valves are open and dripping water.
Tankless Water Heaters (Gas) Make sure there is a steady stream coming from your faucets to keep the water flowing through the unit.
Tank Water Heaters (Gas & Electric) Slow drip your hot faucet to keep water flowing through your pipes.

If your water service remains shut off by your provider…
Water Main & Faucets
Keep your water main and faucets open so that when your water comes back on, you will know it and you will be able to bleed all air from piping. If you shut off your water main, it will trap water in the piping which could then freeze.
Tankless Water Heaters (Gas)
As long as you have power, leave it on.
Tank Water Heaters (Gas & Electric)
For gas, turn the thermostat to low. For electric, turn the power off.

If you think (or know) that you have frozen or busted pipes…
Water Main & Faucets
Shut off water main until the pipes can be fixed by a licensed professional. Tankless Water Heaters (Gas)
As long as you have power, leave it on and make sure the water main is OFF to stop any damage.
Tank Water Heaters (Gas & Electric)
For gas, turn the thermostat to low. For electric, turn off the power. Make sure the water main is OFF to stop any damage.

Two of ABC’s Master Plumbers, Mike Marugo and Mike Yazalina, give tips for your faucets with freezing temperatures, and show you how to shut off your water in case of an emergency.
