No water could be a sign that your pipes have frozen. But it could also indicate that your have a plumbing leak. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help!
You had a rude awakening when you got up this morning. You turned on the tap and no water came out. You immediately thought of warnings of frost and freezing temperatures – particularly in the northern part of Tampa Bay – and wondered if your pipes had frozen in the cold weather.
Thankfully, frozen pipes are not an issue we in Tampa Bay face very often. And it’s unlikely that’s what’s happened unless you have exposed pipes somewhere. But you’re right in thinking that no water is usually the first sign of a frozen pipe.
“One of the earliest signs of a frozen pipe is when no water comes out of your faucet when you turn it on,” according to erieinsurance.com. “If you notice that, head first to the basement and check to see that the water is still turned on and that you don’t have a leak. Once you’ve confirmed these two things, continue your inspection to make sure one of your pipes has not burst. If your search reveals that your pipes are frozen but none have ruptured, you have two choices:
“Call a plumber to help thaw your frozen pipes. Most times, this is a better idea if you don’t think you can safely thaw the pipes yourself, you don’t know where the frozen pipes are or you can’t access the frozen area. Attempt to thaw the frozen pipes yourself. Be aware this option can be dangerous if not done correctly.”
If you don’t see an obvious leak and your pipes aren’t frozen, then it’s likely you have a hidden leak and you’re going to need an expert plumber to track it down and fix it. You can find an expert, trusted plumber at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
