    NORCROSS, GA, February 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Georgia winters are notorious for sudden weather changes. Weeks of mild weather can be quickly followed by an unexpected cold snap. If you aren't prepared, these sudden freezes can wreak havoc on your pipes and plumbing. The Kennesaw plumbers at Plumb Xpress encourage you to stay on top of weather reports this winter to prevent costly plumbing damage.

If outside temperatures drop to 20 degrees F or below, let the faucets in your home drip to mitigate the risk of pipes bursting. In southern climates, water pipes are more vulnerable to winter cold spells due to home construction differences. While houses in in the north are built with water pipes located inside of the building insulation, southern homes are more likely to have pipes in unprotected areas outside the building insulation.

Kennesaw plumbing experts explain that when water freezes in a pipe, it expands. Following a complete ice blockage in a pipe, subsequent expansion and freezing increases water pressure downstream. As pressure builds between the blockage and the faucet, it can lead to a nasty pipe break, resulting in serious damage as well as potentially expensive repairs and replacements.

"Ice forming in a pipe does not usually cause a break where the blockage occurs," says Donnie Herrin, Owner of Plumb Xpress. "Surprisingly enough, the break typically happens between the blockage and a closed faucet. That's why it's so important to allow your faucets to drip during hard freezes." The Kennesaw plumbing professionals at Plumb Xpress repair a multitude of pipe bursts each winter even though these calamities are typically preventable.

From routine drain cleaning to major sewer line repair, their knowledgeable technicians will be at your door within 90 minutes.
