Frozen Pipes Repair in Minneapolis

Did you notice a frozen pipe in your home? Or, do you suspect frozen pipes due to low water pressure? Gopher Sewer & Drain offers frozen pipe repair services to help you alleviate frozen pipes before they burst, potentially saving you the cost of a major water leak and burst pipe repair.

What Causes Frozen Pipes?

Pipes can freeze whether they’re made out of plastic or steel. As the temperature drops around your pipes, the water inside will start to freeze, creating ice. As the ice expands, it continues to fill up the pipe, blocking the line. With a blockage inside your pipes, the excess pressure may cause the pipes to burst.

It’s estimated that the cost to fix a burst pipe can range from $400 to $1,500, depending on the severity of the damage. If you add in the cost of water clean-up, it could cost you thousands. If you notice the signs of frozen pipes, you must reach out to a plumber immediately to prevent pipes from bursting.

The Signs of Frozen Pipes

If your pipes are frozen, you may notice frost on the outside of your pipes indicating ice on the inside. Or, you may find that water won’t run from your faucets when you turn them on. You might also notice an odor coming from your drains due to an ice blockage inside the pipe.

Frozen Pipe Prevention

To help prevent frozen pipes during the winter, insulate them, especially if they’re located on an exterior wall or near areas with no heat. It’s also a great idea to turn your faucets on slightly to allow a drip of warm water to flow through the pipes overnight during severe cold temperatures. Going out of town? Don’t turn your furnace down, and anticipate temperature drops - better a regular gas bill then a flooded home.

What Our Customers Say

"Miguel has been to our house multiple times over the years and each time is on time, helpful, and efficient. The first, in fact, was an emergency call on Thanksgiving. Prices are reasonable and you definitely get what you pay for. Strongly recommend for someone looking to avoid the big names and go with a local company.

"Pedro responded quickly and did a thorough and effective job resolving our clogged drains. We had a different plumber out to fix the same problem a few weeks earlier. That plumber snaked the drain, and that helped for a short time. Pedro soon figured out that the line from the kitchen was majorly clogged from years of use, and it had to be blasted with water. Simply snaking it was a waste of time. He also replaced a smaller line with a larger one. The amount of gunk he cleaned out was amazing. The money spent on the first plumber was a complete waste. Gopher wasn't cheap, but I feel like Pedro correctly diagnosed and fixed the problem.

“I called Gopher Sewer & Drain to clean out my clogged sewer. They came quickly and cleaned out over 3 lbs of tree roots. They were very careful of my carpet in my basement, cleaned up everything and took it all away. I will call them again when I have a problem.”

Nicole, Richfield, MN

"Gopher Sewer & Drain for the win! Pedro got someone over to my house after business hours in less than 30-minutes. Eduardo went above and beyond working on my drain - three tries plus an attempt to locate a different option. He finally got through and fixed the problem! Really appreciated all interactions with this company.
