Plumbing Problems in Winters

Maintaining home whether it is old or new is a big investment especially in winters. During chilly winter months, everything goes wrong especially when it comes to plumbing.  At Drain Target in Toronto, we get many calls and emergency help for trenchless sewer line repair. The colder months of the year are tough and we feel happy to help how we can. We are a team of well-trained technicians and plumbing experts.

Let us have a look at the most common winter plumbing issues our professionals usually come across.

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes are the most common and obvious problem in the winter months. During the frozen and snowy days, when the weather gets too cold, the pipes and water freeze. The initial step you must take in such a situation is turn off your water at the supply to keep any more water from clogging up and bursting the pipes.

If you are unaware about plumbing and the possible measures in such a situation, then it is better recommended to connect with a professional plumbing service right away so that they can diagnose and correct the problem which is important.

Hot Water Problems

People suffer a lot of water heater problems during this time of the year because the water is pulled in and travels through the very cold pipes. It takes longer for the water to heat up. Water heaters work harder in the winters and it causes a lot of inconveniences as the people use more hot water during this time of the year.

Water Line Break

Water in the freezing pipes is hazardous and causes a potential water line break. When the water freezes inside a line, it leads to serious blockages that can grow and as a result there are major leaks that can be expensive to repair. Professional help is required in such a scenario. Pressure relief valves can be installed in you water line in certain areas to make sure these blockages do not occur.

Clogged Drains

Clogged Drains
According to our analysis, we get more calls for clogged drains during the holidays likely because people are cooking and hosting parties so much more often than at other times in the year. With the increase in cooking, comes more sink and garbage disposal use. Garbage and food disposal is responsible for clogged drains. In that scenario, a professional plumber can help clear the problem and get your drains unclogged.
