Dealing with Emergency Plumbing Repairs During the Christmas Holidays

The Christmas holidays should be an enjoyable time to share with friends and family, but sometimes – accidents happen. And when it comes to plumbing emergencies in Surrey or throughout the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver – DMC Plumbing is here to help!

Here are some of the most common plumbing emergencies and how you can try to handle them on your own, or call us at 604-908-9998 for our 24-hour emergency service. Our Licensed Residential and Commercial Plumbers can answer all of your questions and servicing needs, and provide prompt service to repair your concerns.

Blocked Drains

A blocked drain can have your water backing up quickly, and is usually caused from hair and debris piling up somewhere within the drain. In most cases, this can be fixed with a store-bought drain cleaner. Follow the directions, and this concern should be solved fairly quickly.

Overflowing Toilets

An overflowing toilet is never pleasant, and the only way to immediately stop the flow is by turning off the water behind the toilet. After that, it might cause a bit of a mess to plunge your toilet, but that is the next step to clearing the blockage. After that, if you still can’t get your toilet unclogged, call us!

Burst Water Pipes

Thankfully our winters are pretty mild here in the Lower Mainland, so freezing and bursting pipes are not a common occurrence. If you do experience a burst pipe, turn off your home’s main water supply, then turn on all your faucets so the remaining water in the pipes is released.

Water Heater Disruptions

A broken water heater during the chilly months is not a fun thing to wake up to, and this is a plumbing emergency that a professional would need to be called in for.

DMC Plumbing is here to help with any water heater concerns, or other emergency plumbing needs in Vancouver and the surrounding communities.

Feel free to call us for all your Plumbing & Heating services, whether you have an emergency or simply would like a FREE in-home evaluation for ways to upgrade your appliances, water heaters, gas-line installations and more! We’re here to help and can be reached at (604) 908-9998.

Wishing you all a merry and safe holiday season!
