Reichelt Plumbing expertly installs PEX piping for all residential and commercial clients. PEX piping is a great way to avoid frozen pipes in Crown Point, IN and beyond. PEX Piping is Cross‐linked Polyethylene and it is rapidly replacing copper pipes as the most used type of pipes for homeowners. PEX Piping lasts longer and is more damage resistant. It is also of comparable price to copper pricing since copper is quickly becoming more expensive. If you experience water hammer noise, which is caused by rapidly opening and closing valves, PEX Piping virtually eliminates that noise. This type of piping is also freeze resistant, essentially corrosion proof and will not develop leaks from corrosion.
Freezing pipes result in a high number of burst or cracked pipes and can cost homeowners hundreds or thousands of dollars in plumbing repairs every winter. There are a few was to prevent frozen pipes this winter season:
1. Allow a slow drip of water to drip through your pipes.
2. Insulate any exposed pipes or pipes that run along an external wall.
3. Consider purchasing a space heater to heat up rooms containing pipes that run along an external wall and are more likely to freeze.
4. Disconnect and drain all hoses and sprinkler systems and turn off the water supply to any external faucets or connections.
5. Consider changing at risk pipes to PEX piping.
