Top tips for preventing your pipes from freezing

  • Ensure that your walls, lofts and cellars are insulated - don't let pipes in these areas get cold.
  • Insulate your hot water tank around the sides and the top
  • Insulate your pipes all year round. 
  • Fix leaky taps and replace washers. 
  • Leave the heating on low in cold weather even if you are going away. 
  • Leave your loft door or hatch open on really cold days as the air in the rest of the house will help to heat it
  • Disconnect your hose, turn off the tap. 

What to do if your pipes freeze or burst

  • Know where you stop clock is
  • Turn of the mains straight away.
  • Contact IQ Plumbing Services immediately on 077715 282 998
  • If the pipe has not yet burst and is only blocked, protect any electrics around the pipe in case it does.
  • NEVER try to thaw out the pipes if they are close to a gas supply - call IQ! 
  • If attempting to thaw the pipes yourself use towels or a hair dryer. NEVER us a blow torch.
  • Make sure the tap is open on the pipe that you are trying to thaw so that when the water defrosts it can flow out easily.
