Video – How to Prevent the Pipes in Your Home From Freezing
Insulate the pipes in your home on exterior walls or in unheated areas such as crawl spaces, garages, basements, and attics. Turn off the inside water shut-off valve that provides water to your outside spigots or hose bibs. Drain each line by opening the spigot until it stops dripping and then turn off the spigot. Use a faucet cover to insulate the outdoor spigot and further protect it from freezing. Seal windows or any cracks that would bring in a draft.
When US Trenchless comes out to perform a video inspection of a pipeline, the process is simple, non-destructive, and highly effective in finding any areas of concern. First, our certified technician places the camera into the pipeline. Then, as the camera is pushed through the piping, it records its voyage. The images recorded by the camera are immediately visible to the service technician, who processes the findings and provides a comprehensive diagnosis. The process takes very little time; the property remains clean and free of damage, without any inconvenience to the seller. Help your clients make the best investment decisions by arming them with information about the location and condition of the pipelines for each property they are considering buying. At your request, inspection footage can be archived for future reference.
