Sewer Services and Repair in Toronto and GTA
Many of the main drains in Toronto are aging, which can lead to frequent sewer backups. These issues often stem from a variety of underlying causes:
- Tree roots infiltrating and obstructing the drain pipes.
- Accumulated debris from years of usage leading to blockages.
- The possibility of the main drain collapsing, which can impede the flow and cause backups.
A tell-tale sign of a clogged sewer drain is water backing up at the lowest point in your basement, typically at the floor drain. If you notice this happening, it’s a clear indication that there is a blockage in the system that needs to be addressed promptly.
The main drain can also be collapsed which again will cause a sewer to clog.
You will know that your sewer drain is clogged as it will back up in the first available place in the basement which is usually the floor drain. However, having a toilet in the basement backing up can also be a sign.
