It is inevitable for any household not to experience a clogged drain. Whether it’s due to the lack of maintenance or other underlying issues, we have an experienced team of plumbers Etobicoke can depend on. We deliver a reliable plumbing diagnosis, along with the best, cost-effective repair solution. There is a wide range of debris that accumulates inside your drainage pipes over the years, from food waste to fats and soap scum. Sludge and mineral deposits not only narrow down the pipe’s diameter, but they’re also the main culprits for major clogs. When in need of a certified plumber, our Etobicoke clients can depend on Mr. Rooter Plumbing for effective drain pipe repair and cleaning services.
Video Camera Inspection
Plunging and snaking may be your first attempt to clear a blockage, but if the clog returns and begins affecting nearby fixtures, you’ll know that there is an underlying issue that requires an experienced plumber. Our video camera inspection is a non-invasive way of inspecting pipe interiors. A camera is attached to a flexible, waterproof cable which is lowered down the pipe. Our experts are able to capture live video footage on a monitor that helps determine your pipe’s type and condition, as well as locate the clog. We’ll also be able to follow the camera from the surface via a signal receiver. Depending on how deep the clog lies, we’ll be able to use either hydro jetting or mechanical augering to break it.
Drain Cleaning Service
Our qualified team of drain service technicians has always tackled common drain issues like clogs with a high level of professionalism. You can trust our cutting-edge HydroScrub® Jetting technology to meet all your drain cleaning needs! Our skilled plumbers in Etobicoke use a high-pressure water jet to effectively cut through clogs and break down sludge, debris, and calcium deposits from your pipe walls. There is nothing a psi level of 3000 can’t do; it can even cut through tree roots should you need a sewer cleaning service prior to a repair!
What makes our drain cleaning so unique is that we refrain from using harsh chemicals which are harmful to the environment and your household pipes. Instead, our plumbers use an enzymatic drain cleaner that contains friendly bacteria that consumes organic matter, including food waste, hair, sludge, and mildew. These enzymes effectively break down organic matter into small pieces. And with support from the high psi level of the HydroScrub® Jetting, all is properly flushed away in an instant.
Your Etobicoke Plumber Tackles A Wide Range of Plumbing Repairs For Residential Homeowners
Leaking toilets and faucets are serious issues that could drastically drain your wallet. But there are also many other warning signs that call for an experienced plumber. Some Etobicoke homeowners may experience a drop in water pressure, sink flies, or foul odors wafting from the kitchen sink, and even frozen pipes. These are clear warning signs that it is time to contact a licensed plumber.
Water Heater Repair
You rely on your hot water heater to provide you with heated water throughout the day. Depending on the size, a tank-based unit consumes a lot of energy by keeping gallons of water hot all day long. One important thing to remember is that Etobicoke’s water hardness is fairly high. This means that it contains a fair amount of calcium and magnesium deposits. Over time, they lead to mineral buildup, which is most noticeable around the mouths of your faucets or the exterior of your shower head. This is probably less noticeable inside your hot water tank until the unit starts showing signs such as:
- Rattling noises
- The corroded sacrificial anode rod
- Fluctuating water pressure
- Discolored water
- The pilot light keeps going off
- Clogged drain valve
- Increased electric bills
Water heater maintenance includes flushing out the tank, replacing the anode rod, and perhaps even the drain valve if it’s severely clogged with calcium deposits. Those who have a water-on-demand heater, such as a tankless water heater, will be surprised to know that their unit also requires periodic flushing. That’s because the cold water travels through a heat exchanger, which easily collects deposits over time. Luckily, there is a way to manage water hardness! Our local plumbers offer water softener installations which will ultimately provide you with a better showering experience, cleaner dishes, and healthier pipes.
Main Drain Repairs and Replacements
Compared to surrounding areas, Etobicoke is an older city with more historic buildings. The problem with older structures is that the majority of them have outdated plumbing lines that cause various issues. From sewer line clogs to tree root intrusion and corrosion damage, sewer repairs and replacements are more frequent than ever. But there is hope with Mr. Rooter Plumbing’s trenchless sewer line repair and replacement service.
Once our professional plumbers have conducted a video inspection and leak detection, we’ll provide you with the details of our findings, as well as the repair options available.
When fixing a leak in the sewer line, we offer trenchless technology to recover your underground pipe. It’s a minimally invasive method that doesn’t require excavation. The first step involves hydro scrubbing and cutting through tree roots to clear the path. Next, an inflatable replacement liner is installed to cure in place and recover the pipe’s functions (also known as pipelining). However, if the main line has suffered from damage in various sections, our plumbers may suggest pipe bursting. This trenchless method involves drilling two access holes and using hydraulic pressure to break down the affected pipe. A rod is used to pull out the broken pieces through one hole, whereas a brand-new section is installed via the other hole.
In more severe cases where the sewer line is corroded or has collapsed, the traditional excavation method is your best option to recover your plumbing system. Unlike the competition, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Etobicoke truly cares about eliminating underlying issues that are often overlooked by homeowners. We bring the knowledge and expertise to identify main drain issues and deliver effective repair solutions. Call us today to have your sewer system inspected!
Backwater Valve Repair and Maintenance
Every home should have an efficient backwater valve installation on its private sewer lateral system to prevent sewage water from flowing back into the house. During flood warnings and heavy rainfall, it is not uncommon for the city sewer to become too overwhelmed. Back in 2021, about 17 homes in Etobicoke were flooded. While the exact cause is unclear, the key to minimizing the risk of such a disaster is by ensuring you have a functioning backwater valve. It ensures wastewater only flows in one direction—namely, away from your property! Another important precaution is to update your basement’s waterproofing at least once every seven to ten years. This includes securing your window wells, and basement walls, and fixing exterior foundation cracks. This will greatly reduce the risk of a severe flood.

This is to ensure potable water is coming through your taps and wastewater is going down drainage fixtures effectively.
