Plumbing emergencies and disasters can occur at any time, but Winter plumbing problems can be unexpected. At C4 Plumbing, we want you to be prepared in the event you have a plumbing disaster this Winter. Below, we will discuss some common Winter plumbing emergencies and how you can be better prepared for them.

Water Heaters

Water heaters need regular maintenance. If your water heater is not providing enough hot water, is making noises, or your water is a rust color, it is important that you call a professional plumber as soon as possible. Water heaters can break and flood your entire property. By having regular maintenance completed on your water heater, you can ensure your water heater does not break and flood your home.


Winter weather can cause pipes to become frozen. This can turn into a severe problem if you have more than one frozen pipe or one of your pipes burst. Water can quickly enter your property and cause significant damages to occur. To prevent frozen pipes, you can run water at a low rate during extreme colder weather. This will ensure your pipes do not become frozen. If you have a frozen pipe, it is crucial that you call a plumber to unthaw your pipes as soon as possible.

Clogged Pipes

The Winter months always contain a lot of holidays that may involve family and friends. Overuse and misuse can cause your pipes to become clogged. Grease, hair, and even toys can cause pipes to clog. This can become a major problem if your toilet or sink starts backing up. To avoid these problems, keep an eye on what is going down your sink and toilet.
