We provide water service upgrade services to the entire City of Toronto. Upgrading your water service is an effective way to remedy low water pressure and remove possible lead contamination from your drinking water.
Lead Pipe Removal
There are still lead pipes providing water service throughout the City of Toronto, but starting in 2011 they have taken it upon themselves to conduct 1,500 water service replacements every year. There are two sections of pipe that must be replace, the privately own portion of the pipe that runs from the propertyline to the water meter (or inside of the building) and the City-owned portion of the water service pipe that connects the from the property line to the actual watermain.
Replacing this whole connection is necessary to significantly reduce the lead contamination present in the water – the City will replace it at the sametime or after the privately owned pipe has been replaced but in order to do so you must fill out their priority lead water service replacement form. Please find a link to that form below
Here is the Priority Lead Water Service Replacement form.
We also perform new water service installation which is useful in the event that you need to install new water service in your house or home. Contact us to discuss this process.
Low Water Pressure? Water Service Upgrade Could Help
Does your home suffer from low water pressure? The cause may be from sediment build up in the pipe from aging (common in our old Toronto homes) or it may simply be that your water demands have risen above the water supply capacity of the pipe infrastructure.
Planning on installing new fixtures, or a second bathroom? Chances are you need to upgrade your water service. This is especially the case in the City of Toronto, the majority of homes are aging and simply put have insufficient water supply to keep up with the demands of today’s water usage.
Absolute Draining & Plumbing can solve these problems by upgrading the diameter of the supply pipe that runs from the City connection – by replacing your existing supply pipes with larger diameter pipes you can receive improved water pressure and better water service to your entire home.
Simply contact Absolute Draining & Plumbing your local Toronto plumbers and we will look into your specific situation and provide you with the ideal solution to upgrade your water service.
★★★★★ Experience 5-Star Customer Service from Absolute Draining & Plumbing
★★★★★ Andrew came and inspected my exterior drain. He was professional, pleasant and punctual. Using a drain camera he showed us what the issues were and made recommendations of how to remedy our issues. We made an appointment and the work was done on schedule and as per the quote he gave us. I would highly recommend their services. Very happy with their work.
★★★★★ They were very professional, quick and best priced draining and plumbing company I called. They were honest with what they saw in my basement plumbing and did not push to upsell any additional work. They gave great advice as to what to keep an eye out regarding my old plumbing in the future and I appreciated the honesty. They replaced my sewage piping from the stack to the edge of my property (big job) and were in and out of my house in a few days and cleaned up very well!
★★★★★ Andy (the estimator) was terrific. Showed up exactly when he said he would and gave me (and my son) great advice on how to maintain the work they put in at our house. Crews were a little late on starting but stayed until the job was finished. What I thought was going to be a 2 - 3 day job (installation of a Back Flow Valve) was completed and inspected in 1 day! Will definitely use them again.
