If you did not invest in frost free hose bibs pre winter season, go down into your basement and make sure water isn’t already pouring out of anywhere BEFORE you turn the pipes on for the first time – believe us when we tell you that you will know right away if there is a burst pipe or not!
It’s important to remember all things that aid in the running of your pools and sprinkler systems all summer long, two of them being your outdoor pipes and their faucets. The weather in general is not what is used to be (more predictable), and here at John the Plumber we feel it’s critical that you have access to this fall checklist to avoid frozen pipes and ultimately expensive water damage once the cold hits Oakville.
As another hot summer ends in Oakville, our office is well prepared and waiting for the phone to begin ringing as it does every year at this time to inquire about sump pumps. Autumn and spring experience heavy rainfalls and run-off in this area, and we get a flood of calls (pardon the pun!), with the W-5 on sump pumps and how they work.
There are many different types of drainage systems in Oakville. Often it can be challenging to figure out what is best for your home depending on where you live. On top of it, the large majority of home owners that call John The Plumber Oakville are not plumbers themselves, and as a result plumbing terminology can present further confusion.
