Frozen pipe repairs
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. Thawing saves your properties and you hundreds of dollars in frozen pipe repairs.
If you wonder what thawing it, it’s unfreezing.
Sometimes pipes that are unfrozen may end up damaged or prone to further damage. Our frozen pipe repair experts will assess your pipes and plumbing system and suggest the right course of action.
Our frozen pipe repair services generally comprise of:
- Problem identification and isolation

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 pipes
Prevention 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 pipes
It’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 winter
It’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 pipes
Keep 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.
It’s a non-stick Teflon thread seal tape used to create a watertight seal and help screw pipes in place.
Yes, they will unfreeze once temperatures increase.
Yes, but only once. It’s because the tank next fills up only after the pipes unfreeze, and water starts flowing.
You know your pipes are frozen if you don’t get water from faucets and get only cold but no hot water.
