2
Winter in Mississauga can be unforgiving when the
temperatures dip down below freezing and the
winds pick up speed.

3
It is during these times, homeowners experience
the most frequent problem with their plumbing in
the winter frozen pipes.

4
If you remember back to your chemistry or science
courses, when water freezes it expands. This is
why you hear nightmares about peoples homes
getting flooded in the winter from frozen water
lines.

5
As the ice expands inside the pipe, it places
added pressure on connections and different
sections of the plumbing. Unfortunately,
eventually something has to give,

6
so the pipe can crack or be pulled apart at a
connection, leading to water seeping in. As the
pipes warm up and thaw, the water will quickly
pour out of any openings and flood the home.

7
To avoid having to call emergency plumbers in
Mississauga from Precise Plumbing, we offer the
following suggestions to prevent frozen water
lines in the winter

8
1. Keep outside doors closed -  Water lines are
ran into homes in different areas, which could
include your garage and basement.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

9
During the winter, avoid leaving the garage door
open for an extended period of time, especially
on cold days. In the basement, make sure any
doors and/or windows are closed.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

10
If you have a crawl space under the home, close
any air vents around the exterior of the home in
the winter, to block out cold air.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

11
2. Open cabinet doors on extremely cold days
- Allow warm air to get under sinks and around
the water lines.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

12
The air will also circulate into the interior
parts of the home and could prevent water lines
from freezing.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

13
3. Never shut off your heat - Hydro and energy
bills can be expensive in the winter and some
homeowners try to save money by shutting off
their furnaces while they are away from the home.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

14
While temperatures inside the home might not get
too cold, the interior areas of the home could
potentially fall below freezing.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

15
Rather, it is better to turn down the thermostat
three to five degrees lower than your preferred
at-home temperature.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

16
4. Verify pipes are properly insulated -  The
water lines leading into your home need to be
buried deep enough underground to prevent
freezing.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

17
In cases where they cannot be buried as deeply as
required, they need to be properly insulated to
keep the cold out. Indoor pipes also need
sufficient insulation within the interior walls,
attic, basement, and/or crawl space.

18
5. Wrap exposed pipes -  It is also beneficial
to wrap exposed plumbing with an approved product
to further protect against cold and freezing
temperatures.
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

    647-878-9293

19
Outdoors use special covers to put over exposed
water faucets. In addition, if you know certain
areas of your home are not fully protected from
freezing temperatures,
  • mypreciseplumbing.com/

20
you can turn on sink faucets and allow the water
to drip out slowly to help prevent them from
freezing solid until temperatures warm back up,
but this will increase your water bill.
