Sewer Line Installation & Replacement in Toronto

Sewer lines are underground pipes that collect wastewater from properties and transport it to treatment facilities. This wastewater contains all the water from sinks, showers, toilets, drains, and appliances. When a sewer system fails or shows signs of significant wear and tear, replacing the affected sewer lines is often necessary.

At Sewer Squad Plumbing, we provide expert sewer line installation and replacement services to restore proper drainage. Our plumbers have the expertise to conduct thorough inspections and recommend the most effective solutions that align with your needs and budget. We use only high-quality, durable materials that meet all codes and standards for new sewer line construction.

Causes of Sewer Line Clogs

Sewer line clogs disrupt wastewater drainage, leading to messy, hazardous backups and overflows. 

Common factors that cause obstructions include:

  • Tree roots infiltrating sewer pipes
  • Grease and fat build-up in pipes
  • Foreign objects flushed down toilets
  • Pipe scale and sediment accumulation
  • Structural damage to sewer lines
  • Incorrect pipe installation 
  • Excessive rainfall or flooding 
  • Kitchen waste accumulation in pipes
  • Bathroom habits contributing to blockages
  • Chemical deposits forming hard blockages

When Should Sewer Lines Be Replaced?

Sewer lines have a typical lifespan of 50-100 years. As pipes age, the risk of failure rises. 

Consider sewer line replacement when:

  • Pipes are over 50 years old
  • Recurring clogs happen more than three times per year
  • Slow drains take longer than one minute to clear
  • There are roots visible inside the line
  • Odours persist even after drain treatments
  • Cracks or misalignments are found during camera inspections
  • Sinkholes, wet spots, or leaks appear over the line
  • Wall cracks or foundation damage occur above the line
  • A significant portion of the line has collapsed or needs repairs
  • The original pipes are made of clay, iron, or concrete
  • The home’s water usage has substantially increased 

Though repairs can fix isolated issues, full replacement is necessary when sewer lines show multiple signs of deterioration. Replacing severely damaged lines avoids future backups, overflows, and water contamination on your property. 

The Sewer Line Installation Process

We follow a meticulous process for sewer line installation to ensure that every new system operates efficiently and meets our high-quality standards. 

Our installation process includes:

  • Initial consultation and assessment: This includes evaluating the condition of your existing sewer line, if applicable, and determining the best route and method for installation.
  • Design and planning: We plan the installation to minimize disruption to your landscape and daily routine.
  • Permitting and compliance: Before digging begins, we obtain required permits from the city for legal installation and safety protocols.
  • Trenching and excavation: We carefully excavate the area for the new sewer line installation, preserving the surrounding environment as much as possible.
  • Pipe laying: We lay the new sewer pipes in the trench using durable materials that are resistant to corrosion and tree root intrusion.
  • Connections and testing: Once the pipes are in place, we connect them to your home’s plumbing system and the municipal sewer. We then conduct pressure and leak tests to check if everything is watertight and functioning correctly.
  • Backfilling and landscaping: After passing all necessary inspections and tests, we backfill the trench and work to restore the landscaping to its original state. 
  • Follow-up: Our Toronto sewer line installation team remains available for any follow-up questions or concerns you may have after the job is concluded.

How Long Do Sewer Lines Typically Last?

The lifespan of sewer lines can vary greatly depending on several factors, including:

  • Materials: PVC pipes last over 70 years, while clay pipes last 50-100 years 
  • Proper installation: This prevents early pipe damage and failures
  • The soil around the line: Stable clay soils prevent pipe shifting versus sand or rocks that break pipes
  • Size: Wider pipes handle more waste and resist clogs for decades
  • Usage: Heavy use from more occupants and appliances strains pipes
  • Nearby trees: Roots can penetrate joints in 10-15 years, damaging pipes
  • Weather conditions: Freezing, floods and droughts accelerate pipe damage

It is always a good idea to have a regular inspection schedule to extend the lifespan of sewer pipes. Sewer Squad Plumbing provides expert guidance and services in Durham Region, Hamilton, Markham, Brampton, and Newmarket.
