Sewer Line Replacement, Toronto

When the typical person thinks about their plumbing—if they think about it at all—they generally focus on the water supply side of things and prefer not to ponder what happens to wastewater after it disappears down a drain or is flushed down a toilet.

How We Tackle Toronto Sewer Line Replacement Services

If they've recently been told that they need sewer line replacement, Toronto property owners often worry that their landscaping and hardscaping will be ripped apart by extensive excavation to create a deep, ugly, muddy trench so plumbers can remove the old underground pipes and get the new ones installed. That is the traditional method of getting it done, but don't panic—in all likelihood, we can get your Toronto sewer line replacement taken care of without digging any trenches.

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Toronto, our expert plumbers use trenchless methods and technologies that, as their name suggests, don't require a trench to be dug in order to get access to buried plumbing pipes. Trenchless techniques are therefore considerably faster and less destructive than conventional methods.

Inspection and Diagnosis

Your wastewater disposal lines are hidden from sight, which means all the issues that can occur within them are also hidden away. When it comes to sewer line replacement, Toronto plumbers will tell you the first step is always figuring out if a replacement is even necessary by determining the nature and location of the issue. Usually, the best way to do that is with a thorough plumbing inspection that includes sewer camera inspection. Your plumber will attach a small video camera with an LED light to a flexible cable and lower it into your drain, then maneuver it through the pipe while it records video footage of the inside of your line. Once it has been retrieved, they will play back the footage and interpret it to discover exactly what's going on. Then, they can use their experience and training to come up with the right solution to get your wastewater lines working perfectly again.

Pipe Bursting

If there's extensive damage to your underground sewer lines, it will likely be necessary to complete a trenchless sewer line replacement. Toronto professionals at Mr. Rooter accomplish that by using hydraulics to break apart the existing pipe that has suffered sewer line damage. Then, we thread a new pipe into the space left behind by the old one. This may sound complicated, but it's a relatively quick process—in most cases, it only takes us a single day to finish a trenchless sewer line replacement. That way, you can avoid the hassle and expense of having to relocate from your home overnight or take more time away from work.

Frequently Asked Sewer Line Replacement Questions

How Long Will a Pipe Last Before Sewer Line Replacement is Necessary?

That's difficult to say, because it can vary a lot according to the pipe material and how well the overall system is maintained. Cast iron, cement, clay and PVC pipes can sometimes last a surprisingly long time—potentially even several generations. But it's important to remember that won't be the case with poor upkeep. They need to be diligently maintained with services such as professional drain cleaning and other preventative measures in order to last the maximum length of time. They could also suffer unexpected damage from tree root intrusion, landscaping changes, earthquakes and more that will, of course, considerably shorten their lifespan.

If you have Orangeburg pipes, however, we can guarantee that they are ready for replacement without even looking at them. That's because Orangeburg pipes stopped being installed in the 1970s and they only last for about 50 years at an absolute maximum before they start literally disintegrating.

What Are the Warning Signs My System Needs Sewer Line Replacement?

Some of the common signs include:

  • Slow drains
  • Foul odor from drain pipes
  • Gurgling noises from toilet
  • Sewer line backups
  • Sewage smell in basement

Is Sewer Line Replacement Covered By Homeowners Insurance?

In years gone by, the answer would have been a definitive no because sewer line replacement was never included on a standard homeowners insurance policy—it had to be added to the policy as an endorsement or floater. But now, some insurance companies do offer sewer line replacement coverage as part of a basic homeowners policy so the answer could be yes. If you're not sure whether it is covered on your policy or not, the best way to find out is to contact your insurance broker and review the exact terms of your individual policy that relate to Toronto sewer line replacement.
