Frozen Water & Drain Lines

Edmonton, Leduc, Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove, St. Albert

Edmonton’s, ehh, “northern” climate means that it’s not uncommon for pipes to freeze in the dead of winter. This presents a problem: nearly everything you do in your home, from showering in the morning to flushing the toilet after your “business” requires freely flowing water and drainage lines. When these become clogged, it turns into a serious problem.

If your pipes/drains are frozen, save the headache and call Piper: we’ll resolve the problem quickly, safely, and to your satisfaction.

How We Tackle Frozen Pipes & Drains

We’ve learned through first-hand experience how challenging it can be to find the actual source of the problem, especially in older homes that are not as efficiently insulated as modern homes.

We never make any assumptions about the pipes or the problem. Instead, we diagnose the problem properly (using video inspection tools when needed) to ensure that our solution addresses the entire problem without creating a new one.

Unfortunately, Edmontonians can expect winter to come like clockwork every October/November. It’s one thing to thaw your pipes and get water flowing freely again, and another thing entirely to solve the problem comprehensively enough that it doesn’t happen again.

At Piper Plumbing, we prefer to fix it once and fix it forever.

The solutions our plumbers recommend take several factors into consideration:

  1. The condition of your existing pipes
  2. Your home’s heating environment, and the overall efficiency of your HVAC setup
  3. The extent of the problem and how likely your pipes are to freeze again

Once we understand the above, we then look at several different options that will unfreeze your pipes and prevent a similar problem from occurring again in the future.

  • Pipe insulation
  • Heat wraps/cables for pipes likely to freeze again
  • Improvement in HVAC efficiency and building insulation
  • Temperature control devices, such as inline heaters, hot water circulation modules, and more

In some cases, we may recommend upgrading your pipes to modern piping to ensure compatibility with current/future standards. Ultimately, our objective is to prevent your pipes from freezing again.

When your pipes are frozen it can be an extremely challenging situation. We often don’t realize just how much we rely on the reliable operation of our plumbing system.

At Piper Plumbing, we ensure that our services are to your satisfaction. This means that we invest in the right people, training, and technologies needed to get the job done (and done reliably).

Our goal is always 100% customer satisfaction.
