Preventing Winter Flooding From Plumbing Problems
Cold temperatures can freeze water pipes, adding to the pressure inside them and causing them to burst and flood your home.

If you plan to be away during the fall or winter, there won't be anyone around to turn off your water if you do experience a burst pipe.

As soon as the weather starts to hit freezing temperatures, you should get your plumbing system checked to make sure that all your pipes are protected.

The biggest contributor during the winter that leads to a water line leak is a frozen line that splits the pipe.

Insulating your pipes with tubes made of fibreglass or polyethylene provide extra protection to prevent burst pipes.

Keeping the heat on can prevent pipes from freezing and is far less expensive than dealing with a burst pipe and water damage.

At Flood Services Canada, our professionals can confidently help you prepare your pipes and home to prevent flooding from winter plumbing problems.
