Drain Cleaning: How to Avoid Frozen Sewer Lines

Why They Freeze

Pipes are always more vulnerable when the temperatures plummet, and this includes your underground culverts. Though it is true your sewer line is less likely to freeze than the other pipes in your system, there are a handful of reasons why it may happen, including blockages, inadequate insulation, and a lack of consistent water flow. Plastic and copper pipes, too, tend to be especially susceptible to freezing, as are storm sewers.

What You Should Do Prevent It

If any portion of the pipe is exposed to the cold, use heat tape to wrap it, and insulate it with fiberglass. Cover any vents in your crawlspace with cardboard, seal up cracks or gaps in your basement with caulk, and cover up all access points. Above all else, remember to hire your local plumbers to perform drain cleaning services in advance of freezing conditions. They will completely clear your outdoor sewer line, removing any debris and blockages so fluids may travel smoothly through your pipes without having the chance to freeze.
