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

“Had a drain backing up and was tempted to deal with the problem myself...glad I didn’t! Gopher was able to quickly dispatch someone to come out and assess the issue and within an hour had everything back to normal! Pedro was extremely helpful and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use again and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you!”

Cody J., St. Anthony, MN

“I recommend Pedro to everyone who asks. 1st of all he’s the nicest guy ever. Secondly you feel like you’re getting a fair price when you use him for a job. He actually came to my house one time and as I had a problem he couldn’t fix, he left without charging me a dime. I offered to pay him for his time and mileage but he refused to take my money. It’s not often you find that integrity in today’s world. It’s not fun to have to call a plumber, but Pedro will make the process less painful.”

Kristin O., Minneapolis, MN

Tom & Julie, Minneapolis, MN

“Pedro came out the same day, fixed our plumbing issue, and probably saved us $1000 by recommending the right fix, not fixing unnecessary plumbing like most companies try to do.”

Justin H., Minneapolis, MN

“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.”
