Subzero temps cause several cases of frozen pipes in Lee's Summit

January 5, 2014

No water? Your pipes may be frozen

Lee’s Summit Water Utilities is investigating several customers reporting they do not have water in their homes or businesses. This is primarily caused by frozen pipes inside the home due to the subzero temperatures.

If you are experiencing a loss of water or water pressure, please call Lee's Summit Water Utilities to investigate the cause. In most cases, the pipes inside the home are frozen. In that case, we recommend you stay home, turn up the heat, open the cabinet doors to allow warm air circulation and crack open the faucets. Once the water begins to thaw and flows through your faucets, you are going to want to be home to adjust the faucets so they are not fully open. You may want to leave your faucets running a small trickle of water so your pipes do not re-freeze.

If your faucets are turned off, once the frozen pipes thaw and expand, the water inside them will have no place to go, which could result in busted pipes, and a huge mess.

For more information, visit our Winterization page at lswater.net, or call Lee’s Summit Water Utilities at 816-969-1900.
