Utah Freeze Causes Pipes to Burst reports Local Plumbers Worthing
Experts say rash of ruptures is worse than normal
Half an hour after the call, both Kelsey and her fiance arrived at home to find that their house was drenched in water.
"Every time we stepped on the carpet, a good inch or two of water splashed up around our feet," Kelsey said. "The damage was a lot more than we originally imagined it would be. It's basically going to require not just new carpet, but flooring, baseboards, new pipes and a section of the wall that was cut out."'
The experiences are familiar for many families across Utah, as the wave of severe cold has caused the pipes to freeze and burst. The result is water pipes that freeze under the intense pressure of the cold, which causes the pipes to burst. The water damage often results in thousands of dollars of repairs that are required.
Plumbing and flood-control businesses report that the cold season is easily their busiest time of year across the board. However, this year seems to hold specific significance when it comes to damage dealt.
"I've never seen anything like this," said Chad Westover, a spokesman for Valley Plumbing in Salt Lake City. "We have guys working 14-hour days, staying five hours longer than they typically do."
When speaking on the damage he has seen this winter, Jeff Park noted: "This typically happens to pipes that have a lack of protection," Park said. "It often freezes if you have a pipe that's on the outside of the residence or too close to an outside wall. But you can have insulation surrounding a pipe and it might still freeze in this weather."
