What Constitutes a Plumbing Emergency?
Over the years, your home will undoubtedly require some plumbing repairs or replacements. These routine inspections and repairs are fairly common and in most cases, are not extremely time sensitive. On the other hand, a plumbing emergency requires immediate attention or repair. Emergencies are called as such because they get worse with time, create a danger in your home or cause extensive damage in a short period of time. With 24-hour emergency plumbing services, our customers are always protected from plumbing emergencies and time-sensitive repairs.
How to Prevent Burst Pipes
One of the most common plumbing emergencies for Ontario homes is burst pipes. In the winter specifically, it’s common for the pipes to freeze and rupture. This kind of emergency is easily preventable if homeowners were to take two precautionary measures:
- Install pipe insulation on your pipes: This material is available at almost any hardware store. It easily slips over the pipes and provides insulation during the winter to keep the pipes from freezing.
- Seal any and all cracks: Even a crack that is a few centimeters wide can let in cold air in the winter and cause the pipes to freeze. Make sure all cracks are sealed and your pipes are not exposed to cold air to prevent freezing.
How Can a Sump Pump Prevent Flooding?
Homes that experience heavy rainfall, are located in low-lying areas or have an excess amount of groundwater will benefit from a sump pump. These units are designed to prevent flooding in your basement, cellar or crawlspace. Sump pumps work by using a series of French drains that siphon water into a tank usually located in your basement. Once the water in the tank reaches a certain level, a pump will kick on that pumps water away from your home, preventing flooding or water damage.
