What is a dead leg in plumbing and how do you fix it?

What is the definition of pipe freezing?

With over 50 years of engineering experience, our specialist team have the capability to modify any type of pipework linked to a water tank. Across a variety of commercial sectors within the United Kingdom, we work with copper pipes, stainless steel pipes, PVC pipes, UPVC pipes, CPVC pipes, Polypropylene pipes and Cast-Iron pipes. All of which commonly feature within water supplies in commercial premises, especially in and around cold-water storage tanks. So whatever materials your tank and system currently have installed, we can help.

No matter what kind of pipework modification is needed, Tank Reline can provide a solution. Typically, our team specialises in dead-end pipework / dead leg pipe removals, mains conversions, valve modifications and pipe freezing & reorientation of tank inlets and outlets, to name just a few. The necessary pipework modifications on any project will differ based on the use and design of the system.

In plumbing, a deal leg is defined as a section of pipework that is no longer in use within a water system. Visually, these pipes are capped off, hence why they are also referred to as dead end piping. They are considered a major water hygiene risk because whilst one end is capped off, the other is still connected to a live water system, meaning the length of pipe remains full of stagnant water, which is the perfect breeding ground for many types of harmful bacteria, including Legionella. To remove a dead leg, it's crucial the connected pipe supply is shut off, before manually cutting off or replacing the pipework back to the live source, so no stagnant areas remain.

Pipework freezing is a technique used to isolate the flow of water within a water pipe, through freezing the contents inside using specialist equipment. The purpose of this technique is to provide a temporary shut-off whilst modifications to the pipework or associated valves can be carried out. This is particularly useful when the isolation valves on a system have failed, allowing maintenance tasks to be carried out locally without the need for a full system drain down.
