Who wouldn’t want to marvel at the outdoors of Canada?

Dedicated to providing all of our cottage country customers with the resources they need when their cottage plumbing goes awry and disrupts their vacation, this article explores tips and tricks to ensure cottages continue to function properly.
Cottage Plumbing Issues
The reality is, cottage plumbing systems can break down and fail. While disruptive and annoying, knowing how to act in these situations, and how to prevent these situations, will help to get you back enjoying your “home away from home” as quickly as possible.
Below are just a few common cottage plumbing issues to look out for:
Defective Toilet Flushes
Cottage owners may experience running toilets and flush leaks, which can be embarrassing especially around guests. Flush parts, like the fill valve and flapper, usually cause these problems.
Should you experience any issues with a defective toilet, call a plumber for advice or service to ensure that you are not wasting a lot of water in the endless pouring or leakage.
Water may back up in the drains of your sinks, tubs, and shower floors. This can be due to major clogs or pipe line defects that can prove overwhelming and gross.
Aside from floods or pools of water, problematic drains can also cause unsanitary consequences like odours and contaminated water. To prevent and stop these issues before they get worse, call a plumber immediately upon detection.
Low Water Pressure
Faucets and shower heads that only drip and trickle, as well as insufficient flush waters, generally signify low water pressure in cottage areas. In these cases, the water pump may not be working well, or the pipe system from the water reservoir may have been disrupted.
