Winnipeg winter conditions are renowned in Canada and have some of the worst winters on record, with hundreds of homes experiencing frozen pipes, lack of water and heating failures. Winnipeg plumbing companies are aware of winter pitfalls and sometimes work round the clock when conditions are at their worst.
Trouble is when problems strike they always hit at the worst times. Take Ian McCausland a commercial photographer based in Winnipeg. The harsh weather conditions caused damage to his studio at the worst possible time in winter 2014. He had a major shoot planned and lost the water supply to his business premises just prior to the shoot. McCausland managed to shop around and hire a trailer to provide temporary water and toilet facilities for his clients, however, not everybody is in the same position.
