How to repair leaking pipes
There are two basic ways to repair leaking pipes. The first is by sealing the pipe, and the second method is by cutting off the damaged pipe part. It’s a professional plumber who will be able to decide which the better option for your damaged pipe is. Leaks arising from loose plumbing fixtures or minor cracks are resolved in a few minutes. We replace the leaking, broken pipe by welding it with another piece.
Sometimes it’s the pipes outside your home that spring a leak. We use the best technologies to quickly and thoroughly inspect and repair pipes even outside your home. We explain the extent of damage and estimate how much it will cost you before starting repairs.
Faucet repair outside
Anyone and everyone in Toronto knows how bitter cold the temperatures are in winter. The cold leads to various problems like stalled vehicles, high heating bills, and frozen pipes, and plumbing lines. The temperatures are so low in winter in Toronto that it freezes the pipes and the water you need for drinking, washing, and cleaning. We know how much your life depends on water, so we help keep a continuous flow of water even in winter. We will both repair frozen pipes and prevent pipes from freezing and icing through thawing.
Why do pipes freeze in Toronto?
It’s simple- it’s all because of the cold, bitter winter and fundamental physics. Sometimes the water in exposed residential or commercial pipes that aren’t insulated with a thermal wrap can freeze on chilly nights or days. It’s a known fact that water expands and increases in pressure when frozen. Besides, various components like kwc faucet valves and water heater regulate the temperature of water in your plumbing lines.
Water once frozen stops flowing, and also stresses the pipes so much that they may burst. It can not only cause a leak but also lead to severe water damage.Pipes freezing are a seasonal problem. However, it sometimes lasts longer in improperly installed or insulated pipes, and where temperatures remain sub-zero for a few days.
What do I do if my pipes freeze in winter?
No pipe, regardless of its material type, is termed safe from the cold winter temperatures. While PVC pipes rarely explode, the slightest crack can lead to flooding of 250 gallons of water a day! That’s why the best thing to do if there’s a leak is to turn off the main water valve till we arrive. You can then thaw the frozen line using a hairdryer or other heating appliance. Slow water flow is another sign that the pipe is freezing, and it’s better to call us immediately if you notice it. However, you needn’t worry about thawing frozen water lines or replacing old ones because we will do it for you. We have been helping the residents of Toronto and GTA with their frozen and burst water line and pipe woes for years and are now experts.
What if I’m unaware of the frozen pipes?
It’s possible that you won’t even realize that your pipes are frozen. It’s because a though you may notice a split, it takes time for water from freezing and creating a flood. So you may end up with a large ice glob, but no leak, when water expands and splits open the pipe. Besides, as ice blocks the split, it has to warm up to start leaking. It’s lucky if you are at home when it starts thawing. You will notice the damage and flooding on time and minimize loss by turning off the water. However, things won’t be as pretty if you weren’t at home!
You may end up with a flooded home if you had never noticed the leak, and it starts warming up and leaking when you are away or sleeping. Here’s an official guide for Toronto.
How to prevent frozen water pipesPrevention is always better than cure, even in the case of frozen water pipes. Here are some things you can do to minimize the chances of your pipe freezing.
- 1. Using heating cabled or insulated pipesIt’s better to install heating electric cables near the pipes so that they don’t freeze in freezing temperatures. Some additional insulation like a winter jacket on the pipes also helps prevent freezing by keeping the area warm.
- 2. Turning off appliances not used in winterIt’s better to turn off the water to faucets and appliances you won’t be using much in winter. For example, it’s better to turn off the main water supply if you will be away for a few days. It prevents freezing and possible damage in your absence. Also, disconnect outside hoses before the weather gets too cold to prevent them from freezing and damaging connecting pipes. Properly drain all exterior water pipes and bleed out the kwc faucets till there’s no water in the line. It’s especially important for areas where your water lines are not insulated properly and are vulnerable to the cold.
- 3. Increase heat around pipesKeep the garage door shut during winter months if there’s water supply running through the garage. However, keep the bathroom, and kitchen cabinets open in cold winter months to let the hot air freely circulate and prevent freezing.

We are so glad we were able to find John, he is such a professional and so friendly. We've been in our house about a year and found a leak in our ceiling directly under one of our bathrooms. John was able to find that a gasket was missing from the bathtub drain, and also the toilet gasket was replaced as there was water around it. Everything done in less than an hour. Hoping this will fix our problem, but I am confident that we won't have leaks anymore! Thanks John!

Incredible service! +++ So glad to have found John, as now our go to master plumber. He is very professional, reasonably priced, highly skilled and a true gentleman. Getting an accurate quote from John was quick and easy - I submitted pictures with my job list using their web form, received a fair quote within the hour, and a few minutes later I was able to book a convenient time with him. He came on time and communicated 30 minutes on the dot before arrival. He installed a handheld bidet sprayer with hot and cold water connection and a pair of water hammer arrestors for my front loading high efficiency washer. He worked clean and efficiently and checked everything with me before wrapping up. Highly recommend him and will be calling him for all my plumbing needs going forward.

John is an absolute pleasure to deal with. One morning woke up to some really bad water stains on the kitchen ceiling due to some kind of leak in the bathroom above.. Reached out to John who was very attentive with excellent communication. He instructed me to take a couple photos and answer a few questions. He was able to diagnose the problem accurately and provide me with a quote for the work in a quick email exchange. He came, resolved my problem and everything was done well and completely transparent with everything.. He also took a look at another issue I had and provided great guidance there as well. I could not be more happy with the service John provided. He's a fantastic plumber and a great authentic, friendly guy. Look no further if you need a great plumbing services.

John did 3 separate jobs around my house including adding a filter outside, fixing a pipe inside my garage, and replacing a leaky toilet shut-off valve. Very happy with the quality of the work, and John took the time to answer my questions and explain what he was doing and why. Overall very satisfied and would use him again.

I’d used John’s service twice within last several months. First to replace the basket strainers with the kitchen sink, he also replaced the piping without charging extra when he saw the pipes not installed properly from before. Second time was to repair a leaking toilet. John was able to identify the issue when I explained to him on the phone and he came and fixed it. He also fixed other issue on the day he visited and the charges are reasonable. Will definitely use the again

We had a problem with a leaking toilet that had to be fixed. I contacted John with my questions and received the response very promptly. After I was ready to go ahead with the repairs he was able to squeeze me into his schedule on the next day. He arrived on time and did a great job fixing the leak. It has been more than 8 months since that day and we have not had a single problem again. Another good thing that came out of his visit is that if something is going to go wrong with the plumbing in the condo I don't need to spend time searching for someone I trust with the plumbing work, I will definitely call him again.

I initially thought I needed a complete faucet change but after review, John mentioned I required a new cartridge which was not as expensive as initially quoted. I booked John for his honesty and integrity as I sent the same details to several other companies who quoted $800-$1200. John came within a 24 hour turn around time and fixed the leak in my faucet! Thank you again

Needed to replace the Thermostatic valve in our shower. John Dima was on-time very professional and got to work right away. What I liked was how he worked; He put on shoe covers at the front door, was careful not to scratch or damage the shower, was constantly wiping down the surface to make sure it was clean and free of any debris. Awesome Job. I would recommend Dima Plumbing and will call upon him if we need future servicing.

We hired Dima Plumbing to replace our outdoor faucet since it was rusty and our old hose was corroded stuck on it. John came on time, was polite and personable, very efficient with the job, and offered helpful tips on what do with outdoor faucets during the winter. The highlight for me was watching John work. It was a quick and straightforward replacement (less than 30 mins) but you could see the years of knowledge and experience with how smoothly John replaced the old faucet, cleaned away the years of rust and corrosion, and attached the brand new bib. It was like watching those mastercraftsmen working effortlessly with their tools to scrape and sculpt something from nothing. Highly recommend John and Dima Plumbing!

I recently used Dima Plumbing to replace an old toilet and its shut-off valve. I highly recommend their services. John's quote was reasonable compared other plumber's quotes I received. He was very prompt in everything - replying to my request for a quote, answering my questions, booking an appointment, and arriving for the work. He did the job efficiently, following COVID guidelines, and explained well what needed to be done. If I need future plumbing work, I will contact Dima Plumbing and will recommend this plumbing firm to my friends and family.
