Harsh Canadian winters aren’t just hard on people. Those frigid conditions can also expose weaknesses in your home’s plumbing. Poorly insulated pipes or improperly installed exterior hose connections are especially vulnerable. When liquids in these pipes begin to freeze and expand, they can easily burst the pipe, causing significant damage to your home.
When your sinks and faucets slow to a trickle—or don’t create any flow at all during the winter—suspect a frozen pipe somewhere in your home. This is not a time to wait for the spring thaw. Remember: the pressure created between the blockage and the faucet causes the pipe to burst. If this happens, you may also face flooding and escalated repair costs.
