Minecraft players have many things to figure out within the game. One common question that arises is how to prevent water from freezing in Minecraft. Frozen water isn’t always something that players are looking forward to. This is because, to complete certain tasks, players are required to have access to water. Without water, players cannot fish nor will the crops have a water source to grow. You can see where we’re going with this. Basically, water is essential in the game.
However, luck isn’t always on the player’s side since the water can freeze at certain places. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent water from freezing in Minecraft. In this guide, we’ll talk about the two methods to stop water from freezing. This will allow you to carry on building without worrying about the water freezing.
Steps to prevent water from freezing in Minecraft
Much like real-life, the water freezes when you move to a cold environment where there is snow. Hence, if you place water in a snow biome, it will most likely freeze. Well, it will not freeze if you follow our guide below.
The best option you have to prevent water from freezing in Minecraft is to place a light source(s) around the water. Torches are going to be a good option since you can place multiple torches around the water that you do not wish to freeze. Since torches are a source of light and heat, the water will not freeze. Alternatively, you can place a block over the water. The height of the block does not matter as long as you cover the top of the water. If you really want to, you can use both methods simultaneously to make sure the water does not freeze at all.
Of course, it’s not necessary that you use both methods at the same time. It’s worth noting that torches might not always be the best option. This is because torches can only melt the water or prevent water from freezing around a small area. With that said, it brings us to the end of this guide on how to prevent water from freezing in Minecraft. You may also be interested in our other Minecraft guides.
