Before We Dig Deep – Our Community
Oxford County is a wonderful rural area in Southern Ontario. With strong farming roots going back hundreds of years, the land is as much a part of Oxford County as the families that tend it’s fertile soils.
Though we have a lot of nice rural towns and hamlets, there’s also a couple decent sized city centers such as Tillsonburg, Woodstock, and Ingersoll. It’s these bigger towns and cities where we might expect to experience a greater degree of plumbing difficulties and emergencies.
No doubt as the population density increases in an area, it translates to more people and more toilets, sinks, or faucets with the potential for clogs, kinks, leaks, and drips. These common plumbing problems persist far across the land, and it may be up to one company who manages to take the responsibility seriously to keep water flowing smoothly – both in – and out – of pipes and drains all over Oxford County.
It’s all just part of what makes this county so excellent 🙂

Who Should We Talk to About Emergency Plumbing Problems?
There are certain problems that occur when you have no alternative but to call a trusted professional. When the cold winter has pushed the temperature in your basement below freezing, your pipes can expand and burst.
If you do not have access to the water line and the shut off valve to your home, you’re going to end up with a huge mess. It’s the type of nightmare that can cost you thousands if not addressed immediately. (This is a case where it would have been well worth it to have purchased flood insurance!).
If your pipes burst due to the cold, you’re definitely facing a plumbing emergency and will have to make a very important and urgent phone call to get the professionals in to fix the issue.
They have clamps, valves, and other tools that they can use to halt the flow of water into your basement. This is extra useful in the event you haven’t located the water main shut off valve.
Tips to Avoid Pipe Freezing
The biggest tip of all is to make sure any exposed pipes in your basement have the foam insulation installed. It’s easy to do and you can even do it yourself. You can almost just rip the foam to length and easily affix it to the pipes.
Ideally you would want to have any copper pipping that would be on the exterior walls of the house encased in the foam pipe insulation. This one small, and inexpensive tip can be the difference between tragedy and safety when the cold winter days come.
