Pipes will sometimes freeze inside the house by the meter. If this happens, you can warm up towels in the dryer then wrap them around the meter and pipe for thawing. For more tips from the City of Winnipeg click the button belowFrozen Water Pipes

Tree roots can fill a pipe with hair-like root masses that quickly become clogged with toilet tissue, grease and other debris flowing from your home resulting in reduced flow and slowed drains. Once roots have entered the pipe, they continue to grow and expand. Increased pressure can crake or break the pipe, resulting in a collapse.
We scour pipe walls and use drain pumps to deal with the immediate problem, then offer solutions to fix or avoid future issues. Our service trucks are equipped with the latest in drain cleaning equipment, cameras and pipe locators.
For frozen pipes we have a portable hot water steam cleaning unit to help remedy the problem. Our technicians are trained to complete any emergency repairs required.
