How to Keep Pipes from Freezing in Toronto’s Winter

2 septembre 2019

Winters in Toronto can get mighty cold. While the residents of the city are used to the cold weather, the freezing temperatures can cause all sorts of problems for our homes and businesses. As the temperatures drop, one of the most serious problems that Toronto homes face is the potential for frozen pipes. In the best of situations, a freezing pipe disrupts the flow of water in the home, but it can also cause pipes to burst. When this occurs, it not only disrupts the flow of water to the lines, but it can also make a terrible mess and cause damage to other parts of the home.

When it comes to frozen pipes, the best answer is to be prepared. You should do what you can to keep pipes from freezing. Along with taking steps to prevent the freezing of pipes, you should also know what to do when a pipe does freeze, and in the worst-case scenario, you should also be prepared for the possibility of a pipe freezing and bursting. In this post, we are going to look at some practical steps that you can take to prevent frozen pipes, and we are also going to provide some advice for what to do when a pipe does freeze.


How to keep pipes from freezing

Ideally, you don’t want your pipes to freeze or burst in the first place. By taking some simple measures to prevent the freezing of pipes, you can avoid the stress and potential damage that occurs when pipes freeze. The following are a few tips for preventing frozen pipes.

Insulate the Home

One of the first steps is to assess the insulation in areas like the attic, crawlspace and garage. These areas of the home don’t usually get heat from the furnace, and they may be poorly protected against heat loss. By adding some insulation, you could help to keep the temperatures higher, and this could be one measure that will protect against frozen pipes.

Turn up the Heat

If you have pipes that are poorly protected in some areas of the home, turning up the thermostat can help. Homeowners commonly turn the heat down at night or when they are away at work during the day. When the heat is turned down, it can expose some of the pipes that are on exterior walls to an increased risk of freezing. It might cost you a little more on your heating bill, but it could prevent the costly problems that will come with a burst pipe.

Remove Outdoor Hoses

Remove any hoses you have from the outdoor faucets. Drain the hoses and store them away for the winter. If there is a shutoff valve for the outdoor lines, close the shutoff and drain the lines. You could also leave the hose bibs open so if any water does stay in the line, it has room to expand without damaging the pipe. Insulate Exposed Pipes Go to the unheated areas of the home and look for exposed pipes. This would be areas like the garage, the attic and the crawlspace. If you find exposed pipes that are not insulated, buy insulation to protect these pipes against cold weather. You can even buy specialised pipe insulation that is designed to wrap around the exposed pipes.

Open Cabinets Under Sinks

Go to all of the bathrooms and kitchens and look for pipes that are in the cabinets beneath the sinks. With the doors closed, heat cannot get into the cabinet, and this could increase the potential for a frozen pipe. This risk increases if the cabinet is on an exterior wall. Leave the doors to these cabinets open, and this will allow warm air into space and this can protect against the potential for freezing.

Heating Cables and Heat Tape You could also go to the hardware store and buy something like heat tape or a heating cable. These products have an electric heating element that can be used to maintain the temperature of pipes that are at risk for freezing. You wrap the pipes with the tape or the heating cable and then plug it in. This can be an effective means to prevent the potential for frozen and burst pipes in the winter.

Let some Faucets Drip

Under most circumstances, you would not want to allow your faucets to drip. However, when it is cold outside, leaving the water running at a trickle can be one way to prevent freezing. If you have any lines that are exposed to cold temperatures, you could go to one of the fixtures supplied by that line and leave it open at a slow drip. By allowing water to move through the line – even just a little – you can reduce the risk of the line freezing.

Use a Space Heater

Areas like the crawlspace and attic are not covered by the home heating system. To compensate for the lack of heating, you could use a space heater to keep the pipes from freezing. All you have to do is place the heater near the exposed pipes, and this should provide an effective form of protection. Remember, you are not trying to heat the space to make it comfortable for humans, you just want to heat it enough to prevent the potential for a frozen pipe.

If You Leave Town

You wouldn’t be the first person to leave town during the winter, only to come home and find a pipe that has frozen and burst. If you are going away for a few days, make sure to set the temperature no lower than 13°. If you are really worried about the potential for a frozen pipe while you are away, you could close the main and drain the lines. If you do choose to close the main, leave some of the sinks open just a little. This will protect against any the freezing of any water that might be left in the line.

Relocate Pipes

This is a worst-case scenario solution, but some homeowners may need to consider moving water lines that run on exterior walls. If you are having problems with frozen pipes in exterior walls, you might need to contact a plumber that can come out and move the pipes to an area where they won’t be exposed to such low temperatures.

Thawing Frozen Pipes

If you take the proper steps to prevent frozen pipes, there is a good chance that you can avoid problems. If you already have a pipe that is frozen, then you are going to need to take steps to thaw the pipe.

If it is cold outside and you go to turn on the sink, only to find that little to no water comes out, there is a good chance that the line is frozen. To restore the flow of water, you will need to take steps to locate the frozen pipe and thaw the frozen water that is inside.

Finding the Pipe

Start by testing different fixtures in the home. If the flow of water is low or there is no water at all, you can assume that the line is frozen. The first places to look are in areas like the attic and the crawlspace. The problem may also be in a pipe that runs through an exterior wall. To find the frozen section that is obstructing the flow, run your hand along the pipe and look for areas that appear to be bulging.

Apply Heat

The next step is to apply heat to the frozen section of the pipe. As a tip, you should keep the line open so water can flow through as it thaws. The flowing water can assist in the thawing process. To apply heat to the pipe, you should use something like an electric heating pad or a hairdryer. You could also place a space heater near the pipe to raise the temperature. If you do not have any of these items, you could wrap the pipe in towels that are soaked in hot water. What you do not want to do is expose the pipe to an open flame. Do not try to heat the pipe using a blowtorch or any other device that uses a flame to provide heat.

Wait for Full Pressure

Don’t stop when you start to see more water coming out of the sink. You want to make sure to keep heating the pipe until full pressure is restored. Once you have full pressure at the fixture that has a problem, go around and check all of the fixtures in the home to make sure the problem is completely resolved.

If all else Fails, Call a Plumber

In some cases, you might have trouble locating the section of frozen pipe or thawing the pipe. If you can’t find the frozen pipe or restore the flow of water, that means that it is time to call in a licensed plumber.

What to do when frozen pipes burst

Under the worst circumstances, the pipe won’t just freeze, it will also burst. When this occurs, you need to act fast to prevent further damage. As a recommendation, you should keep a temporary patch kit in the home. You don’t want to patch the pipe and forget about it, but it can provide you with a little time while you wait for a plumber.

Turn off the Water Supply

The first step is to turn off the water supply for that line or at the main. Once you have the water turned off, open the faucets and fixtures to drain the line as much as possible. By cutting off the flow and removing water from the line, you can prevent further damage.

Remove Sensitive Items from the Area

Once you have the water turned off, you should remove any electrical items from the area. In some cases, you may need to turn off the breaker for certain areas of the home. If you have any possessions that could be damaged by the water, try to move them to an area of the home that is not affected by the burst pipe.

Temporary Repair

Try to apply a temporary repair. If you have a patch kit, that could be a good way to prevent more water from leaking from the pipe. You could also buy a sleeve clamp to act as a temporary repair. If neither of these options is available, you might be able to use duct tape if the pipe only has a small hole or crack. Just remember that none of these solutions should be viewed as a permanent fix. They are just temporary fixes to buy you the time that will be necessary to perform a more permanent repair.

Contact Insurer

You will want to document the damage as much as possible. Take pictures of the pipe and any areas of the home that have been affected by water that may have leaked from the pipe. Documentation can be vital when you go to file a claim with your insurer.

Get the Pipe Fixed

In most cases, fixing a burst pipe is a job better left to the professionals. Once you have the situation under control, it is time to get a plumber on the scene to perform the necessary repairs. Along with getting the pipe fixed, you may also need to repair components of the home that were damaged by the leaking water. Look for things like sheetrock that may have been damaged by the water, and consider the potential for mould that may come with areas that are saturated with water.

Living in Toronto means that you should be prepared for the effects of cold temperatures. In getting prepared for winter, you should prepare your home and protect it from the potential damage that can occur when a pipe freezes. Prevention is generally a low-cost endeavour, and it can save you a ton of stress and the potential for costly repairs. If you find that you do have an issue with a frozen or burst pipe, it is important to address the problem right away.

Know What To Do If Your Basement Floods

26 août 2019

There is no good time for a flooded basement. When you first see the water, it might feel a little overwhelming. The problem can be such a shock that some homeowners don’t even know where to start. If you have a basement, it does not matter whether you have experienced flooding in the past or not, you need to know what to do if your basement floods.

If you head down the stairs only to find the basement flooded, you want to act fast, but you also want to act with purpose. Some things may need to be taken care of immediately, and you want to make sure to follow certain steps to protect your home against further damage.

 

Safety First

Heavy-duty rubber boots are an essential safety item if you plan on entering a flooded basement.

If you are going to address the problem, you are going to have to go into the basement. Before you go down there, you need to make sure that it is safe. A flooded basement could be a hazard to your health, and it could even pose the risk of death. At the very least, wear some heavy-duty rubber boots as a safety precaution if you plan on entering the water.

The first thing that you want to consider is the potential risk of electrical shock. Even if there is only a few inches of water, there could be an electrical cord in the water, and this could be a hazard. If you are certain there is no risk, go to your electrical panel and make sure that all of the basement circuits are turned off.

If the water is higher, the risk of electrical shock could be even greater. If the panel is in the basement or the water is high enough to reach the outlets, submerge baseboard heaters, the furnace, or any other electrical appliance you will need to get the basement pumped before you can do any work down there. Contact your local electrical utility and request their help to disconnect your power, for detail information please view the flood safety information provided by the Electrical Safety Authority.

As a final point on safety, you might want to consider whether there are any harmful contaminants in the water. Depending on the source of the flooding, it could contain sewage or dangerous chemicals. If the water is high enough to where it is going to come into contact with your skin, this could be a serious concern.

 

Identify the Source

When the basement floods, or is in the process of flooding, you want to try to identify the source of the water. If you catch the flooding early, finding the source and a way to stop it could make a significant difference in regard to the amount of damage that your property will sustain.

A basement could flood for a number of different reasons, and not all of them will be something that you can stop right away. It could be a burst pipe, a clogged drain, a malfunctioning sump pump, surface flooding that has found its way into the basement or it could be a leak in the foundation.

 

Document the Damage

Assessing the damage caused after a flood is an important step.

Recovering from a flood can be expensive, but your homeowner’s insurance might be able to help you cover some of the costs. If you want to ensure the best possibility that your claim will be acted upon, and that all of the damage will be covered, you need to provide documentation and evidence.

When you are investigating the flood and its cause, you should take pictures of all of the damage. In addition to that, take notes and document the source. All of this evidence could be important when a representative of the insurance company comes around to assess your claim.

The cause of the flood may also be important for the purposes of your insurance claim. Depending on the scope of your policy, it may or may not cover flood damage that was the result of certain types of natural events. When you have the time, you may want to review the policy to make sure that you are covered.

 

Assess the Damage and Clean-up

Once you have identified the cause of your basement flood, you can start planning your clean up and repairs. For damage that is covered by insurance, it is important to note that you may need to follow certain recommendations from your insurer and they might already have companies that they contract with for cleaning up flooded basements.

With some of the minor flooding issues, it might be a situation that you can handle on your own. If the damage is extensive, you might want to consider hiring a contractor that specializes in flood damage. You also need to consider the source of the water, and the possible repairs that you may need.

Removing the water is going to be the first step toward getting things in order. For a small amount of water, you might be able to use a wet/dry vac. If the water is high, then you probably need to call in a professional.

When it comes to cleaning up after a flood, there is significant value that comes with hiring a professional. Removing the water is one thing, but you also have to consider issues with mould and bacteria. A professional service will have the equipment and the knowhow to do the job right, and they can help to prevent problems that can arise from things like mould.

 

Prevention

Installation and maintenance of a sump pump and backwater valve are two important steps to take in preventing future basement floods.

After you have the basement cleaned up and back to normal, it is time to think about what can be done to prevent flooding in the future. If the insurance company covered the damage, they might make recommendations for ways to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

If you are on your own when it comes to repairing the flood damage, then you have some points to consider. If it was a leak in the foundation, then it is time to call a foundation repair specialist. If it was a plumbing problem, then you obviously need to get a plumber out there. If the problem was from heavy rainfall or snowmelt, then there could be several points that may help to prevent the water from getting in the basement.

The way that you respond to a flooded basement can make a significant difference in the amount of money that it will cost and to how disruptive the event is going to be to your life. You need to be smart and play things safe. Only hire a reputable Toronto basement waterproofing contractor for any work that you have done, and take the necessary steps to prevent basement floods in the future.

How to Setup New Water Service in a Toronto Home

26 août 2019

The City of Toronto provides its citizens with some of the best water service in the world. The local government takes various steps to ensure that safe, clean water is distributed throughout the city, and they collect and treat the wastewater from our homes.

While clean drinking water and the responsible treatment of wastewater are often things that we just take for granted, there is a lot of work that goes into providing these services. One of the steps in ensuring the safety and quality of these services is to ensure that homeowners and builders adhere to certain standards when they connect to the local water supply or to the local wastewater sewers.

With updated laws on water services and sewer connections going into effect, it can be hard for the residents of Toronto to stay up to date on the process of installing water service. In this post, we are going to take a closer look at some of these processes, and provide some information concerning your obligations as a homeowner and the steps you need to take to get service at your property.

New Water Supply Requirements

The basic points of the new water service requirements are fairly simple, but we are going to take a more extensive look at some of the things that you will need to know in order to get water service in the City of Toronto.

Under the bylaws of the city, all new residential properties must install new water service and sewer connections. If more than 50% of the above grade structure of an existing building is demolished, it is also required to have new connections for the sewer and the water service. Under some circumstances, re-use of existing connections is allowed, but this is subject to city approval.

The first step in getting a water service connection is to apply with the city. To complete the application process, you will need a completed municipal service application and a valid method of payment for the applicable fees. If a contractor is completing the application process on behalf of the property owner, they will need to bring a letter from the property owner that authorizes them to work on their behalf.

The fees for a water service connection are subject to change, so it is important for homeowners to check the fees before they go apply. As of this writing, the fees for residential water service connection in Toronto are as follows:

19mm water service connection with meter: $4,505

25mm water service connection with meter: $5,220

Reuses of water service connection 19-25mm: $281.06

With all new residential properties, new wastewater connections are also required. The following covers the fees for new residential wastewater sewer connections in the City of Toronto. The following is the cost of connection at the time of writing (May 2017), be sure to check for any fee changes before going to apply.

Sanitary sewer connection: $11,265

Storm water sewer connection: $11,265

When you apply for new water service and wastewater connections, it is important to bring an acceptable payment method. At the time of writing, the city will accept money orders, certified cheques, and bank drafts that are made out to Treasurer, City of Toronto. The city will also accept debit and credits cards from Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Once the application and payment have been accepted, the homeowner can expect connection at some time within the next twelve weeks. At the time of the application, the homeowner will be assigned a city contractor to perform the connection service. After the application, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to contact the city contractor in order to schedule the connection and confirm the details of the connection site.

Requesting a New Water Meter

Any building that is using the City of Toronto water supply must have a meter on every line that connects to the municipal water supply. Before you can request a meter, you must apply and pay for your water service connection, as outlined in the section above.

Upon the approval of your connection, you will be given a Customer Service Request (CSR) number, and you will need this number in requesting for a new water meter. However, before you can arrange for a new meter on the property, you must open a utility account for the new water service. At the time of writing, the cost of a new account setup is $66.28.

After receiving a water service utility account number, you can then go to the local water meter office that is assigned to your ward. The West District Water Meter Office covers wards 1-23, and the East District Water Meter Office is responsible for wards 24-44. Both offices are open Monday through Friday from 7 am to 3 pm.

When you pick up your water meter, the City will schedule an appointment to seal and inspect the meter. If a person other than the property owner is sent to pick up the meter, they must bring an authorization form that was completed and signed by the property owner.

It is also important to schedule the pickup of your meter with the installation in mind. All meters must be installed within seven days after the date of pickup. Before going to pick up your meter, it is recommended that you consult with your contractor to ensure that the meter will be installed within this seven-day window.

Before Hiring a Contractor

When you start building or renovating a home, it is important to hire licensed professionals to perform the work. In the case of water service, the contractor that is going to be doing the work is likely to be the same professional that you hire to install the plumbing in the home.

By hiring a licensed professional, you are ensuring that the work is being done by a person that has the necessary skills and training, and this is especially important for jobs like water service and sewer connections. Before you hire any plumber, there are some things that you are going to want to consider.

First, you are going to want to make sure that any plumber you hire is licensed. Obtain information like the license number and the operating name of the business, and verify that the license is valid. You can call the city to verify a license number or you could submit a verification form online. Along with checking their licensing, you will also want to make sure that the plumber is insured.

You may also want to look into the plumber’s experience. Ask them how long they have been in business. You can also ask about their experience in doing jobs that are similar to the work that they will be performing for you. You may also want to ask the plumber if they have any references, and if you can, you could also check any online reviews from the plumber’s previous clients. This can give you a good feel for the quality of work that you can expect, and the reputation of the plumbing contractor that you are dealing with.

After you have interviewed a few plumbing contractors, you should have a list of a few that you feel good about working with. In other words, you verified their license; you know they are insured; you are impressed with their experience and reputation; and you feel like they did a god job of communicating with you.

Now that you have this shortlist, you can start asking more specific questions about the job at hand. Obtain quotes from all of the plumbers that you have shortlisted. Ask for details about the types of materials that they intend to use, and the processes that they will employ to ensure the quality of their work. Ask the contractor about which members of their team they will be sending to work on your home. Finally, ask for an expected date of completion. If you will need them to do things like pick up your water meter, you will also want to make sure this is something that they can do for you.

Ideally, you want to get these types of details from at least three different plumbers. With more options, you can compare prices, expected date of completion, and the details that the different contractors provided about their processes and the materials that they will use. Once you have this information, compare the differences, and consider factors like experience and customer service when making your decision.

Obtaining a Permit

In building or renovating a home, you may need to obtain several permits. For any plumbing project, including the connection of water service and wastewater sewer service, a permit is required.

To get a permit for your plumbing project, you will need to submit copies of any drawings related to the building project. These drawings must be to scale, and they have to be signed and dated. You will also need the site plan, and the plumbing plans for every floor of the building. You’ll also need to submit a plumbing data sheet and an application to build or demolish.

To obtain a permit for the work, you will also need to pay the permit fees. The fees can vary depending on the scale of the work, but the standalone fee for a residential permit for water service and wastewater sewer connections is $198.59. This price could change in the future, so it is important to check before you make any plans.

A licensed plumber should be aware of all of the permits that you will need to get a job done. You can ask your plumber about all of the different permits that may be needed and the cost of the permits for the job. Most plumbers will also be familiar with the permit process, and they should be able to assist you with obtaining the permits that you need.

Cost of Water

Once your water service is connected and you are living in the home, you will start paying for the consumption of water on the property. The city performs regular meter readings to measure the amount of water used on each metered line, and utility bills are issued to account holders.

At the beginning of 2017, a 5% increased has been added to the price of water from the municipal supply. At the time of writing, the current water costs are as follows:

Metric Before Due Date: $3.6225/m3

Metric After Due Date: $3.8131/m3

Gallon Before Due Date: $0.01646815/gallon

Gallon After Due Date: $0.01733464/gallon

The City of Toronto also has programs that are designed to provide temporary relief for people that are in a state of financial hardship. Along with potential tax relief, some Toronto residents may be eligible for a water rebate.

These economic relief programs are intended to help low-income people that are either elderly or disabled. If you meet the criteria, a water rebate can be applied to your water bill for the year following the one in which you applied for the rebate. Along with being elderly or disabled, the household must have less than $50,000 in annual income, and consume less than 400 m3 of water in the year covered by the application for the water rebate.

It is important to note that the water rebate is not intended to provide long-term continual relief for the applicants. It is only intended to provide temporary relief for those who have found themselves in a state of financial hardship.

It might seem like a bit of a process to go through all of these steps to get your water and wastewater sewer connections, but this process is important. It ensures that the work is done right, and that it is done by qualified professionals. This is an important part of protecting the water supply that we all enjoy, and much of the cost for our water and sewer service goes into managing this infrastructure and keeping the water safe and clean.

Don’t Let A Blocked Drain Ruin Your Holiday Party

26 août 2019

You’ve set up for your holiday party. The food is perfect. The drinks are ready. People are starting to arrive and mingle. Then, everything comes to a halt. You’ve experienced a plumbing emergency, a blocked drain, and now everything is ruined.

A Clogged Drain Needs To Be Addressed Fast

Blocked drains in Toronto can lead to a number of problems, many of which can destroy any good times you were having at your holiday party. Such problems could include strange smells resulting from whatever is blocking the drain, making your bathroom unusable, or making your party a little more tense because your home isn’t working properly. But, of course, the worst drain to lose during the holidays is the kitchen.

If you are hosting a holiday party in your home, chances are you need to use your kitchen pretty regularly. You’ll be cooking in there, probably for a few hours beforehand, and you will need it while the party is happening as well. If you experience a blocked drain in your kitchen, it will surely make your party much more difficult to put together and enjoy. Since the kitchen sink is one of the most used drains in your home, it has to stay clear.

Install Drain Traps

The best way to avoid blocked drains in your kitchen is to get ahead of the problem and install traps over the drains. These traps will catch all of the debris that goes down your drain and causes many of the blockages, meaning your pipes have less of a chance of getting clogged, especially when you’re using the kitchen during the holiday season. It’s a good idea to have traps installed in many of your drains, especially in the bathrooms. The traps will help catch hair and other products that can lead to clogged bathroom drains.

To determine if a drain needs a trap, keep a mental note of how water drains during your everyday activities. When you’re using the bathroom to shave or bathe, pay attention to the water and how it goes down the drain. Is it slowing down gradually? If so, you may want to consider installing a trap or other solution to help keep your pipes clear.

Get A Plumbing Inspection

Of course, the best way to avoid a blocked drain is to never have one in the first place, which is why regular plumbing inspections are a necessary aspect of home ownership. With a plumbing inspection, you can have an expert pinpoint any potential problems and have them dealt with before they become bigger, more expensive issues.

A clogged drain in the bathroom or kitchen is sure to ruin almost any party. It can make bathrooms unusable, cause terrible smells, and bring any holiday merriment to a grinding halt. Instead of taking the risk of your plumbing ruining this holiday season, take the time to ensure that your home plumbing system is working properly. Call in a professional Toronto plumber to inspect your plumbing system and ensure that you don’t end up with a blocked drain emergency. They can fix any potential issues before they become bigger problems, and suggest preventative measures to help keep your home draining properly.

Drain Cleaning and Repair Service

26 août 2019

Water back-ups aren’t the only situations that can warn you to the trouble. Debris build-up from contaminants in your water can collect along the pipe walls, and decrease the size of the drain. Over time, water flow becomes blocked, trash, and waste stuck, and you have got a mess. Warning signs in addition to slow-draining sinks include foul odors from drains, toilets that need plunging often also standing water in bathtubs or showers. 

Most of the homeowners and business owners will quickly run to drain cleaners and chemical-based products to unclog their pipes and plumbing system when their drain starts to slow down. Over time those drain cleaners become less and less effective, resulting in impossible to clear drains and sewers. That’s when emergency drain cleaning and repair services are needed.

Installing a drain pipe lining is one of the easiest ways to improve old drain clay pipes. The process of cured-in-place pipe lining is quite efficient and effective, rendering the old pipe replaced with a very durable new interior – in many ways stronger than the original pipe.

A small camera on the end of a cable is inserted into your drain, this allows us to closely inspect every inch of your drain pipe. We also use drain inspection techniques both before and after a drain cleaning and repair, to make sure that all went well and the pipes are clean and withstand the pressure put on them.
