Pipe Freezing Repair Method for Commercial & Industrial Clients
When you have a commercial, industrial, or multi-story residential building, it can sometimes be impractical to shut off the water to make plumbing pipe repairs. In these instances, it makes sense to use the pipe freezing repair method to stop the flow of water while the repairs are being performed. By leaving the water on, the unaffected areas of your building will still receive water service during the plumbing repair.
Generally, when pipes are repaired, the leak is located and we turn off water at the shutoff valve. In large commercial, industrial, and multi-story apartment buildings, this is not always the realistic option. If a valve is broken, another valve may have to be utilized. Sometimes plumbers can’t find the shutoff valves or, if inoperable, a large section and sometimes the entire building may be left without water for a period of time.
