Environment Canada has recently issued an Extreme Cold Warning for many parts of Eastern Ontario including our local area. Current forecasts indicate that overnight lows in the -20s will extend through next week and possibly beyond. With the onset of extreme cold weather, property owners should be aware of the elevated risk of pipes freezing in your home. Frozen plumbing can leave you with no water or cause your pipes to burst, leading to expensive property damage. It is therefore best to take proactive steps to protect your household pipes from freezing where possible. Some key tips include the following:

  • Know where to find your main shut off valve and how it works (in case your pipes burst).
    • Ensure areas that contain indoor water pipes are kept above 8 degrees C, especially near the water meter.
    • Insulate pipes most prone to freezing especially near outside walls and crawl spaces.
    • Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.
    • Open kitchen, bathroom and laundry cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate around ground floor plumbing.
    • Outdoor faucets are the first to freeze. Unscrew any hoses, turn off the outdoor water supplies and let the taps drain.
    • For your own peace of mind, you may choose to run a pencil thin (1/4 inch) stream of water to ensure some movement of water in the pipes. However, your normal water consumption charges continue to apply if you choose to use this step. Run cold water from the lowest point in the house, usually a laundry sink or tub. Ensure the drain is kept clear of debris to prevent overflowing or flooding.

For additional information on these risks please call the Environmental Department at 613-472-6285
