We Help Claim Your City of Toronto Rebate

Our Toronto plumbers help you to claim your rebate for all eligible work, such as the “Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program”. This is a program the City of Toronto started to help property owners improve their home and reduce the risk of basement flooding. It was started in response to the increase in severe weather events Toronto has been experiencing in recent years. It provides owners of single-family, duplex, or triplex residential homes a subsidy of up to $3,400 per property.

We help you to claim this rebate by submitting all the paperwork to the City.

Repairing Downtown Toronto Drain Clogs

It happens to just about anybody that has used their plumbing system for any length of time; their drain will clog of eventually. It could be a simple thing like their sink is clogged and no longer drains water, or it drains slowly, or it could be a much more serious problem for instance if the main drain of the property becomes clogged which inevitably leads to problems in all plumbing fixtures as nothing will drain correctly. This can even lead to much more serious problems, typically flooding and even property damage as a result of that flooding.

Diagnosing Your Drain Problem

If you experience a drain clog problem our drain cleaning experts can help, we’ll send out a Toronto downtown plumber to inspect, diagnose, and clean your clogged drain. Most of the time drain clogs are common and easily solved problems for our plumbers. But in some circumstances where the problem is more difficult to determine, we’ll use a high-definition drain camera to help locate the exact location in your drain that is causing the problem. Using a camera for this task allows us to see inside your pipe allowing us to diagnose the problem very easily. In some cases, inspecting the interior of your drains is a great preventative measure as many Toronto properties are older and discovering early signs of drain problems allows us to perform repairs before the problem leads to blockages or worse.

Cleaning Your Drain

Once your drainage problem has been located we are able to easily clean it out using a variety of methods. Drain snaking is one very useful and effective way of clearing blockages, sometimes this service is referred to as a drain rooter as the machine used in this process was nick-named roto-rooter by the inventer many years ago. Using a drain snake, your drain can be cleaned out very quickly leaving you with a perfectly working plumbing system. In many Toronto homes, this is the perfect solution. If you have a serious drain problem, however, it may require excavation or renovation to access the pipes to physically repair the problem.

Emergency Plumbers in Toronto

We also provide the entire downtown Toronto area with emergency plumbing services. You never know when plumbing problems will occur, and it’s only a matter of time before a major issue will occur and you are not prepared. If you’ve experienced a plumbing problem in the middle of the night, such as a burst pipe or a flooding toilet, contact us and we will send out a professional Toronto plumber to take care of the problem for you.

Frozen Pipe Repairs

We thaw & repair frozen pipe issues. Frozen pipes are a common concern in the City of Toronto due to our extreme cold weather. The problem when pipes freeze is that the water expands, causing the pipe to rupture. This can easily lead to a leaking pipe resulting in flooding and even more damage to properties. Thawing a frozen pipe properly is important, but also preventing this problem from occurring is critical to stop damage to your property. Water damage can easily cost thousands of dollars to repair, and in some cases, the cost of lost personal items which can be priceless to those who cherish them.

Flooding Basements or Overflowing Fixtures

Flooding basements or overflowing toilets is a plumbing emergency which we solve regularly. We are plumbers Toronto residents have relied upon to solve their basement floods and overflowing plumbing fixtures. Waking up a wet basement, or worse a flooded basement is a terrible occurrence people, unfortunately, have to face on a regular basis. This is due to a number of factors, but the most common issue is that the older homes so common throughout Toronto do not have adequate up to date basement waterproofing measures installed, such as:

  • Sump pump
  • Backwater valve
  • Weeping tile (aka French drain)

Even in some homes that have these measure implemented, they are failing due to lack of proper maintenance. Our plumbers are experienced in solving both the immediate problems associated with these types of plumbing emergencies and also the problems which caused them in the first place.


Customer Reviews

★★★★★ “Great experience working with Andrew and team! In the middle of the cold snap in Toronto when frozen pipes and no heating were a huge issue, getting someone to help with my drainage/flooding issue was a problem. Absolute was recommended to me by another plumbing company (yes – they’re that good) and glad they did. Reasonably priced, quick work and well done. Andrew recommended the install of a backwash valve and helped me to navigate the required permit, city inspection and paperwork. Great idea as the floor had to be opened up anyway – get it all done at once before the new flooring goes down! Highly recommend without hesitation.”

★★★★★ “Andrew and his [Toronto plumbers] replaced our lead water service pipe. We were very impressed with them. They arrived on time and worked all day to complete the work. It was raining outside which made their job harder – but they continued to work as efficiently as possible. They returned promptly at 9 the next morning (a Saturday) to finish up. The job was messy, and they cleaned up their work area better than we could have imagined. Later that day we noticed that our water pressure in the kitchen sink wasn’t very strong. We contacted Andrew and he came back early Monday morning to address the issue, without question (it ended up being nothing more than dirt in the faucet aerator). We will definitely connect with Andrew again for future plumbing needs.”
