harris3.jpgAurora and Newmarket tend to be some of the most popular tourist regions and there are many cottages interspersed throughout these towns. Although such locations are excellent at providing a bit of much-needed rest and relaxation, plumbing is always a concern during those times when the property will not be used.

Basic Steps

Any plumber will state that it is first very important to turn off all mains water connections and drain any existing pipes. This will help to ensure that the system does not freeze during the colder months of the year. A burst pipe can present a real problem; particularly if the owner lives hours away.

Renovation Concerns

Some cottage can be well over 50 years old. While this can offer a quaint ambience, the truth of the matter is that a number of plumbing problems could be present.
