Frozen Water Pipes, a Cold Weather Guide to Keeping your Water Flowing

Monday, March 16, 2015 - 10:27am

During these cold winter months, we at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Toronto ON respond to a number of service calls where our customers are without water due to a frozen water pipe. A frozen section of water pipe can affect a single plumbing fixture like a faucet, or it could stop the water flow for your entire house. If a pipe freezes and goes unnoticed, it could lead to the pipe bursting and potentially causing severe damage to a house. It is very important for homeowners to properly winterize any hose taps they have around their house, as this is an easy place for a freeze to occur. This should be done before the temperature drops below zero. On extremely cold days it is a good idea to set your thermostat slightly higher than normal and open doors throughout your house to let the warm air circulate through any colder rooms.

Going Away on Vacation to Escape the Cold?

It is wise to keep the temperature set high in your house and be sure to shut off your main water valve before leaving. The last thing you want is to come home to a frozen mess because your water pipe burst.

If you find yourself without water on a cold day or any day for that matter, we recommend calling Mr. Rooter of Toronto ON to assist you.
