Can Sewer Lines Freeze?

These may be famous last words in the middle of another Chicagoland winter. As a Fox Valley area homeowner, you should be prepared to take the necessary and very important steps in preparing for the harsh winter months still to come. Gutters need to be cleared and chimneys swept in anticipation of snow and icy conditions.

The most common causes of freezing sewer lines are –

1.  Poor insulation around your home’s pipes

2.  The temperature suddenly drops precipitously overnight

3.  Water flow is limited or restricted

4.  Did you check your thermostat? It may be malfunctioning

Whatever the cause, you can get ahead of impending disaster by remembering the name Bee Plumbing and its owner Scott Swanson. There is nothing more determined than a bee! Let Scott examine and repair or replace sewer piping in your southern Fox Valley home. Just type in bee-plumbinginc.com on a Google search and call them today.

There are SOME Emergencies Remaining.

Yes, even though 2020 has been mostly mind-numbing there are some emergencies that still exist. Apart from any health-related issues which we hope and pray have not effected your household there are still the same old same old regular daily mishaps such as a car that breaks down or plumbing that goes bad.

As a matter of fact, your plumbing has probably gotten a greater workout in the past year than most any other in your Fox Valley home’s lifetime. Toilets are flushed more, garbage disposals are used more frequently, the water in the house is turned off and on more often. We know about plumbing emergencies as well as anyone!

Just as in 2020 we pledge to be here in 2021, and in the years to come, to deal with plumbing emergencies as they always have in Fox Valley homes…one broken toilet or clogged drain at a time. We are merely a phone call away to take care of the problem. Just google bee-plumbinginc.com and call the phone number nearby.
