From clogged toilets to leaky faucets, is there anything more frustrating than a malfunctioning plumbing system? Whether it's in your home or commercial building, your plumbing is used dozens of times per day and it needs to work correctly each and every time.

When you first notice something that's not working quite right, you might be tempted to just let it slide—how bad can it be? That instinct to procrastinate on repairs is understandable. After all, every plumbing system needs repair and maintenance sooner or later, but not every property owner has the tools, free time, or know-how to handle every little thing.

However, neglecting those seemingly minor problems is a bad idea. The first signs of damage are a warning that worse is on the way, and when it spirals out of control it can create disasters that are time-consuming and costly to fix.

If you're struggling with nasty, unsanitary problems caused by fixtures and pipes that have fallen into disrepair, put down the plunger and pick up the phone to call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Ottawa.

Clogged Drains

Are you standing ankle-deep in dirty water by the time you finish your shower? Do you make a little wish for everything to go down smoothly before you flush the toilet? Does the water take forever to drain out of your sinks? If you answered yes to any of these (or worse, all of them), you have clogged drains.

While they're disgusting and aggravating enough on their own, clogged drains are often a symptom of a bigger problem, like breaks or blockages in your sewer lines. Needless to say, broken sewer lines can cause serious damage to your property and even jeopardize your health.

A typical, one-time clog can usually be handled with some patience, elbow grease, and a plunger. But, if a plunger doesn't help or the clogs are happening frequently, let the team at Mr. Rooter take a look. Signs of a clogged drain include:

  • Water backing up in a sink drain
  • Pooling around shower drains
  • Water drains very sluggishly
  • The toilet bubbles when you turn on the sink faucet
  • Nasty odours arise from drains that smell like sewage or rotting food

Frozen Pipes

Most Canadians have probably encountered frozen pipes at some point in their lives. But, you don't have to spend the winter living in fear of your pipes freezing—it's actually not normal, and if it's happening regularly, there are repairs that can improve the insulation of your pipes and your quality of life.

When your pipes are exposed to below-zero temperatures, the water inside them freezes and expands, reaching pressures of 3,000 psi (pound-force per square inch) which cause the pipes to burst open. If water is then run through the burst pipe, it can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage in mere minutes.

As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That's never truer than when you're dealing with pipes that are prone to freezing. Once a pipe has burst, it must be replaced. But if it hasn't gotten to that point yet, or you've just had new pipes put in, proper insulation is the key to keeping them functioning throughout the winter.

External, underground piping needs to be insulated, but you should also ensure that your house itself is fully sealed against cold air at windows, doorways, and other openings so your internal pipes don't freeze and burst inside the walls.
