Those who have had issues with frozen water lines may find themselves with another problem one frigid winter’s day – a frozen drain.
Drains are just as vulnerable to freezing as water lines, particularly when they are located on an exterior wall of the home. Even if there is insulation, in the walls, or crawl space, it may not provide enough protection when temperatures drop well below zero.
Windchill can make it colder. That puts both waterlines and drain trap at risk. Even if waterlines still work drain water may start backing up into the sink when standing water in the trap solidifies. That means meal preparation or washing dishes will be out until the drain is thawed.
