    24 Hour Winter Plumbing At Drain Pro

    Cold weather can be a delight. The cosiness of winter allows you to curl up by the fire, enjoy your favourite soup, and be warm. However, if the temperature drops too low, your pipes could freeze, and you could also experience other winter season issues.

    Plumbing problems can be extremely stressful and worrying. A pipe can burst, water lines can break, drains can become clogged, or more. When these emergencies arise, you need to deal with the problem immediately.
    We are aware of how crucial it is to maintain your plumbing, particularly when your home and business  is busiest in the winter.  Frozen pipes in the winter can result in bursts, flooding, and significant damage in the spring. Drain Pro Plumbing is available 24/7 in Victoria and surrounding areas.

    Drain Pro Client Testimonials

    “I made an appointment to have our condos drains checked with a camera. Jason the plumber arrived early and started right away. He had all the drains inspected quickly. Gave a detailed description of any sediment and suggested what should be done but that we were good for a while yet, no pressure to hurry. Will definitely have them back when the time comes.”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the most common winter plumbing problems?2022-12-30T20:23:20+00:00
    Clogged Sinks
    Generally speaking, you do more cooking in the winter. With more food and grease to go down your drain, potential clogs in your sink may occur. The best way to prevent this from happening is to be more mindful when washing the dishes. Take some extra time to throw any remnants in the garbage and wipe away any grease with a cloth or paper towel.
    Lack of Hot Water
    A lack of hot water is always inconvenient – but especially so when the temperature drops! Luckily, there are some simple preventative measures you can take to avoid this chilly situation. To avoid using too much hot water, try to use less water in general. Additionally, ask yourself if it’s time for a new or updated water heater this year. Water heaters that are too small or too old could result in a lack of hot water.
    Pipes Bursting
    Burst pipes are often a result of pipes getting so cold that the water inside them freezes. As a result, an expansion is caused, which bursts the pipe open. Other common reasons include damage from poor plumbing design or misuse, incorrect pressure rating for the pipes, or incorrect routing of flow.
    How do I know if my Pipes Are Frozen?2022-12-30T20:23:53+00:00
    Knowing how to spot frozen pipes is crucial so that you can stop a burst or other damages from occurring when pipes freeze. Signs of frozen pipes include:
    • Persistent plumbing issues
    • Pipes covered in ice
    • Low water pressure
    • Damp drywall
    • Unusual sounds and smell from your pipes
    How do I Prevent Frozen Pipes?2023-01-16T14:34:20+00:00

    Insulate your external pipes to prevent water from freezing and becoming solid in the winter

    To keep the water flowing, always run a tiny amount of water through your faucets.

    Open the cabinet doors under sinks so that warm air may warm your pipes

    Door entrances to the basement, attic, etc. should be sealed

    Insulate any outside or inside water storage tanks that are exposed to the elements

    To maintain the effectiveness of your outside hoses, take them off and put them away

    How can I thaw frozen pipes?2023-01-16T14:36:03+00:00
    Frozen pipes can result in a range of problems, but it can be challenging to locate the specific location of the freeze.
    Most pipelines that are hidden by building walls are difficult to reach.
    Exterior pipelines, however, might be simpler to identify and address. Here are some solutions to thaw a frozen pipe and resume water flow.
    Heating the frozen pipe will help.
    This can be accomplished with the aid of a hair dryer, a space heater, warm cloths, or a heating pad
    While you reheat the pipes, keep the faucet running.
    The ice will be able to defrost and flow out as a result
    Until your water pressure is back, keep heating the pipes
    The best plan of action is to make a call to a reliable, licenced plumber at Drain Pro Plumbing.
    We are knowledgeable with the best solutions and safeguards against the damage that frozen pipes may do.
