Many homeowners will eventually face the frustration and stress of sewer problems. Most people will want to hire a professional plumber to come out and deal with the problem of repairing or replacing their sewer. When it comes to this task it is always a good idea to trust a fully licensed plumber. There are of course general contractors or handymen who may claim to have the know-how or experience, but when it comes to replacing your sewer, the right decision for businesses and homeowners in Toronto is someone they can trust to get the job done right the first time.
Common Toronto Sewer Issues
When you have a sewer issue it may be obvious due to lack of drainage or water backing up, but sometimes the problem is not always apparent. Here are some obvious signs that your sewer needs replacing or repairs.
Strange Smells and Odours
Let’s face it, sewage smells. If you happen to notice any new or strange smells around your property it may be sign that your sewer line is experiencing some problems. Gurgling toilets, stinky smelly sinkholes in your yard are some additional signs that you are probably in need of a Toronto sewer replacement expert.
Water Level in Your Toilet Changes
If you notice that the water level in your toilet changes drastically, such as that it is low at one time and then nearly overflowing another, it may be a sign that you have a sewer problem that should be looked at by a professional immediately.
Slow Draining Sink, Shower, Bathtub
If you happen to be experiencing a low draining sink, tub or shower it may be due to a sewer blockage issue. Maybe you attempted to repair the problem using a chemical solution or even a DIY drain snake application but it provided no relief from the issue. If this is the case there is a good chance that your sewer is the problem and you should definitely get help from an expert.
Foundation Water Damage
Another indication that you may have a sewer problem is water damage to your foundation. Because a broken, cracked, or otherwise compromised sewer line will leak water it may end up seeping through your foundation. If you notice unusual water damage, cracks, or moisture on your basement walls you should consider having a licensed professional take a look at the problem.
Fixing Sewer Problems in Toronto
If you suspect that you have a sewer problem the first thing you should do is a have your sewer line inspected by a professional. But, what options are there to repair and replace your sewer line? Luckily, there are quite a few options and most of them are trenchless which means that your property does not have to be completely dug up in order to correct the issue.
Pipe Lining Technology
Pipe lining technology allows us to install what is essentially a brand new pipe inside of your old one. We use what is called cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining technology that allows us to repair existing pipes using a felt lining and an epoxy resin. The result is a highly durable, corrosion-resistant, and joint-less replacement to the original pipe. As Toronto pipe lining experts we have installed more than 25,000 feet of pipe lining in and around the Toronto area, if you are interested in learning more about how CIPP trenchless technology can repair your sewer or drain pipe please contact us.
Replace Your Sewer with Pipe Bursting
Pipe bursting is another method we can use to replace your sewer line and is another trenchless method although it does require a few holes to be dug to provide adequate access. Using pipe bursting technology a special tool is inserted into the broken/old pipe which advances through it breaking it apart and replacing it with an old pipe. Pipe bursting technology can even install large diameter pipe as the actual pipe bursting head presses the old pipe into the surrounding soil. The use of pipe bursting will largely depend upon your old pipe and soil conditions but it is a fantastic option available for sewer replacement. For your Toronto pipe bursting needs contact us for more information.
