05 Feb Extreme cold causing water line freeze ups and piping freeze ups
Extreme cold and winter advisories are common in the Chicago suburbs. If you have a water well you may have experienced frozen water lines in the past. Each winter Prairie State Water Systems sees water line and pipes freeze up down the well.
We have seen the frost reach depths of 3′ to 4′ in some cases during prolonged periods of cold and the polar vortex. This continual ground movement can crack water lines or freeze shallow buried water lines.
Have you noticed low water pressure? Is little or no water coming out at the faucet? Has your electric bill increased suddenly? These are some common signs of frozen well water lines. Prairie State Water will inspect your well system and trouble shoot water well repair options.
