We’ve all been wrapped up trying to keep warm during the cold weather and now we can finally feel the warm weather starting to return. However, this sudden change in temperature could cause problems to the water pipes in your business.
When water freezes it causes the pipes to expand, this then puts pressure on the pipes and joints within the system which can then cause them to split or pull apart. As the weather warms up, the pipes begin to defrost and thaw out thus, causing a leak to appear. This can end up being extremely expensive for your business and leaks need to be repaired as soon as they are notice.
For those who are shutting down for Christmas it is advisable from the wholesaler that you turn your water supply off to help prevent these issues occurring over the festive period.
If you notice a leak at your site please get into contact via the emergency contact button at the top of every page o our website.
