Do you thank your lucky stars every time your kitchen sink’s slow-moving drains get rid of all the murky water after washing the dishes? Or have you noticed random puddles of water around your dishwasher or gurgling noises coming from your bathtub or shower? If you encounter drain problems in your plumbing fixtures, it’s a warning sign that you require professional services for drain repair. Toronto homeowners are best advised to be proactive about plumbing problems. One of the commonly requested plumbing emergencies our Toronto plumber gets is for clogged drain services.
Unfortunately, a nasty blockage doesn’t go away on its own and may get worse if you don’t clear it. Excess pressure could result in pipe damage, leaks, and more. This could end up costly for your home. Clogs form gradually, starting small on the pipe walls, and eventually, the buildup becomes so thick it narrows the pathway. The accumulation of soap residue, hair, food leftovers, fats, oil and grease, wet wipes, and even toilet paper can result in unpleasant plumbing issues that require expert Toronto drain repair services.
Don’t let a clog be overlooked, as it will result in a domino effect of further problems in your drain lines which will be unable to discard dirty wastewater from your plumbing fixtures deep beneath your sewer lateral. Rely on the team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Toronto ON to get down to the root cause of your problems and offer effective repair solutions.

Here is what you can expect from our Toronto plumbers:
Plumbing Inspection And Diagnosis
Our professional plumbers are well-adept and possess industry-grade tools and techniques to pinpoint the plumbing problem and perform the most effective solution for a drain repair in Toronto. You will see that our skilled plumbers thoroughly observe all aspects of your home’s plumbing system, including the following: freshwater supply lines and any attached plumbing fixtures from toilets, sinks, bathtubs, dishwashers, washing machines, showers, and wastewater drainage pipes.
Following this, we’ll check out the draining and venting systems, filtration systems, supply and drain lines, appliances such as your hot water heater, and lastly, any emergency components, including the main shut-off valve, sump pump, backwater valve, storm overflow, and main cleanout. During this inspection, we will discover the core issues and perhaps other plumbing problems. Common culprits are leaky pipes and clogged drains due to mineral deposit buildup and corrosion in the pipes.
After conducting a full examination, we will provide you with an official report of our future recommendations for repairs, replacement, and maintenance of your drain line. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we always advise our clients on preventative maintenance through proper upkeep by signing up for an annual inspection and professional drain cleaning. In doing so, you will reduce the risks of clogs and sewer pipe issues. Our results-oriented solutions will benefit not only your property value and its structural integrity but also your safety.
Video Camera Inspection and Leak Detection
A plumbing inspection provides valuable information and allows us to locate clogs and determine pipe health. You might be wondering what’s truly brewing and blending inside your drainage pipes. Usually, it’s a mix of solid and liquid substances clinging and lingering inside the pipe’s walls. Video inspection uncovers problematic areas for a clog or leakages, which are useful hints that help our plumber determine the best course of action to remove a clog-causing blockage.
A small, waterproof camera on a flexible cable is attached atop a bright LED light and carefully inserted in your drainage lines through a capped pipe that connects to the sewer line. The camera is maneuvered through twists, turns, bends, and crevices to record high-definition footage, which is displayed in real-time on CCTV monitors for you to witness. By transmitting a signal receiver, it relays useful information, for example, deciphering bigger clogs from smaller ones. This will allow the technician to prioritize and determine which areas are hot spots for accumulated residue and should get a preference for hydrojetting, followed by a drain repair. Toronto plumbers always go above and beyond and not only figure out the root cause but also give you tips on how to avoid this crisis from recurring again.
While the video camera can partially identify the area where a leak might be, additional tools are needed to pinpoint the exact leak location. We may use acoustic listening, infrared, or heatmap devices prior to the Toronto drain repair job.
Once we’ve compiled enough clues from the video inspection based on the current condition of your drain lines, we’ll make an educated decision about how to proceed. Regardless of the conclusion, we’ll need to perform hydrojetting to scour your drain lines clean and prep them for any drain repairs. Toronto plumbers use the advanced technology of HydroScrub® Jetting, a non-invasive process that quickly blasts away any nasty clogs by pulsing a highly pressurized stream of water, up to 3,500 psi and 68 liters of water per minute. This safe and sanitary procedure leaves your drain lines spick and span, working wonders in scrubbing them of any muck—especially compared to store-bought and chemical cleaners, which can rust and corrode your pipes over time. The clog is forced directly into the sewer lateral and the city’s sewage disposal system. This all-inclusive solution removes hair, food leftovers, soap scum, and more, leaving your pipes ready for a Toronto drain repair.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
If we find that a nasty clog has actually ruptured your drain lines, then hydro jetting won’t suffice, and we’ll move on to the next step of your drain repair in Toronto. There is no need to worry about a big, muddy trench to be dug across your backyard! Our innovative and non-invasive technology leaves your property intact via a pipe relining or pipe bursting service for drain repair. Toronto plumbers can skillfully insert a flexible tube with an inflatable pouch that spans the entire length of the pipe. Following this, they will inflate the pouch so much so that it pushes against the pipe lining and interior walls of the pipe. Once it has hardened and cured in place, the inflatable pouch is removed, leaving behind a sturdy, new lining. Relining works great for small hairline cracks or fractures or to plug up smaller holes. However, if the damage is widespread, we will proceed to remove the damaged parts of the old pipe using hydraulic fracturing to break up portions and make space for the new one.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Repair in Toronto
What Are Common Drain Pipe Problems?
Common issues include:
- Blockages which include slow-draining sinks, clogged drains, and toilets that are poorly draining
- Hairline cracks or fractures due to leakage on a plumbing fixture, for example, a kitchen sink or water-based appliance such as a water heater
- Collapsed sections of a pipe
- Clog caused by a tree root intrusion
What Are The Signs Of A Broken Pipe?
In the plumbing world, telltale signs are not something you should ignore, as they signify a massive problem in the making. If you can’t remember when you last had a maintenance service or how old certain parts are, we highly recommend that you get in touch with an experienced plumber, as you do not want to have a “broken” pipe. The signs would likely be a flood or a sewer backup.
Here are the telltale signs that signal the need for immediate action:
- Slow drains indicated by plumbing fixtures that have stagnating water
- Tedious and frequent clogs
- Unpleasant odors
- Random puddles of water around plumbing fixtures
- Foul odors
- Strange gurgling or bubbling noises
- Tree root intrusion
Can You Caulk A Leaky Drain Pipe?
Not exactly–you can't use caulk to plug up a hole in a pipe as the pressured water will only blast away the caulk after some time. Caulk is handy for sealing fittings and gaps around plumbing fixtures such as your faucet to keep it firmly in place and to help prevent water from oozing out from its joints. However, pipe leaks require professional repairs. First, you must identify the severity of the damage and then get all your tools ready. While some leaks can be easily fixed with epoxy putty, a repair sleeve, and a slip coupling, some pipe sections might need to be entirely replaced.
