Sewer Backup Repair Toronto

What is a Sewer Drain Backup?

A sewer drain backup occurs when there is a blockage or obstruction in the sewer line that prevents wastewater from flowing properly. This can cause sewage to back up into the drains of a building or home, leading to foul odors, slow drainage, gurgling noises, and potential water damage. It is important to address sewer drain backups promptly to minimize/prevent further damage and health hazards.

What Causes Drain Backups?

Common Causes of Sewer Backups in Toronto?

Drain sewer backups happen for a variety of reasons – tree roots, grease build-up, drain damage, and more. Some of the common causes of sewer backups include:


  • Tree roots - tree roots can infiltrate sewer pipes through small cracks or joints, causing blockages and backups.

  • Grease buildup - cooking oil, grease, and fats that are poured down drains can accumulate in sewer lines and lead to clogs.

  • Foreign objects - items such as paper towels, hygiene products, and other non-flushable materials can get stuck in the sewer line and cause backups.

  • Structural damage - older sewer pipes may be damaged or deteriorating, leading to collapses, cracks, or misalignments that can obstruct the flow of wastewater.

  • Heavy rainfall and flooding - during heavy rainstorms or flooding events, the sewer system may become overwhelmed, causing backups in homes and buildings.


Homeowners and property owners in Toronto need to be aware of these potential causes of sewer backups and take preventative measures to minimize the risk of experiencing a backup in their property. Regular maintenance, proper disposal of waste, and tree root control can help prevent sewer backups.

How we Repair Drain Sewer Backups?

Drain backup repair approach varies depending on the specifics of your situation. A typical sewer backup repair in Toronto and GTA involves an inspection, sewer backup repair, and another check of the drain functionality after the repair is complete. Our team of plumbers has all the necessary skills to perform sewer backup repair using a variety of methods including.


When purchasing a new home, a plumbing inspection ensures that the plumbing system is installed correctly and meets all necessary codes and regulations. The inspection covers all plumbing components, including pipes, fixtures, water heaters, and drainage systems.


Backflow prevention is essential to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the clean water supply. A backflow inspection ensures that your backflow prevention devices are functioning correctly and compliant with local regulations.

This involves using a specialized camera attached to a flexible rod to inspect the inside of pipes and plumbing lines. The camera is inserted into the pipes, allowing the plumber to visually assess the condition, identify blockages, leaks, or other issues that may be obstructing the flow of water or causing damage.


A backwater valve prevents sewage or water from flowing back into your property during heavy rain or flooding. An inspection of the backwater valve ensures that it is in proper working condition and properly installed to protect your property from potential water damage.

This inspection evaluates the water pressure in your plumbing system. A plumber measures the water pressure and checks for any abnormalities or variations that may indicate an underlying issue, such as a blockage or malfunctioning pressure regulator.


It is essential to hire a professional plumber with the necessary equipment and expertise to repair drain sewer backups effectively and safely. Attempting to clear a sewer backup without the proper tools and knowledge can lead to further damage and costly repairs. Get a FREE estimate today!

I’ve worked with several plumbers before but was thoroughly impressed with the way Igor diagnosed and dealt with the issues I was having. After about 5 minutes he was able to identify the problem and handled everything with the utmost attention to detail. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, and made sure I won’t have any problems in the future. 5/5 stars, I’d give more if I could

Usually to book plumbing excavation work it takes several weeks. Aqua rescue came within 3 days brining 2 heave machines for the dig. They excavated our main drain, replaced and backfilled everything within 2 full days. The prices are also pretty good
