Sewage backup or the inability to flush toilets is not something that a homeowner or a business owner would want. Sewer backup can cause major damage, and the sewer fumes are also hazardous to your health. Determining if your sewer is clogged is straightforward, and the following are some signs to look for when suspecting a sewer clog:
Causes of Sewer Drain Clog in Toronto and the GTA
The sewer drain carries all of the dirty water from your toilets, showers, tubs, washing machines, dishwashers, and sinks towards the main sewer line in the street. Clogs in a sewer line can build-up due to many reasons, including:

Kitchen and Bathroom Clogs
The drains in your kitchen and bathroom are used on a daily basis, and these drains connect to the sewer system and can become clogged due to multiple reasons. Your drain is more than likely clogged if you are facing the following:
There may be several things that are causing your drain to clog; these include:
These items may enter the drain through normal use, or in the case of toys, through the unobserved play of a child. In addition, as time goes by, the normal items that move through your drains may become stuck to the walls of the drain, causing a buildup. The first step to removing a clog is the use of a drain snake; this tool helps drain any standing water and allows us to have the proper access to the drains. We will then use a drain camera to see the severity and makeup of the clog. Next, we use hydro-jetting to clean the drains of our customers. This high-pressure water jet system can remove almost any item that may be clogging your drain and breaks it up into pieces small enough to wash through the sewer. Hydro-jetting is the only method that truly cleans both the clog and the buildup.
High-Pressure Water Jet
Mostly, drain and sewer clogs are unclogged by inserting a drain snake to remove enough of the clog to allow water to flow freely. This method is sometimes not effective because it does not address the real cause of drain clog. While debris such as hair, paper products, and sanitary items contribute to a drain clog, there is also another factor to consider, buildup. Clog Buildup along the walls of your drain and sewer pipes accumulates over time from the residue in dirty water. As the buildup grows, it restricts water flow and catches items along the drain line. A drain snake will remove the stuck item, but not the buildup. You will soon have another clog and be in the position of calling out another plumber. High-Pressure Water Jet addresses both issues of a clogged drain and the buildup on the walls of the drain. We use specialized nozzles that are inserted into the drain and blast high-pressured water into the system. The water removes both the clog and the buildup, restoring your drains back to their original diameter. High Pressure Water Jet is the only method that truly cleans and removes the entire clog. We offer High-Pressure Sewer Jetting Service when a sewer or drain line has too many roots and grease. Our sewer water jet machine delivers 3,000 psi @ 12 gallons per minute to thoroughly clean your sewer system. Our sewer water jet is mounted right in our truck and is always on the job if needed. We use Sewer Nozzles that will scour away any grease on the walls of the pipe and shear off roots that a sewer snake will not cut out. You will definitely save money with this type of service, which will keep your sewer functioning versus a sewer line replacement.
Sewer Camera Inspection
Have you ever wondered what is really going on within the pipes of your plumbing system? For a long time, the only way to see inside a pipe after it was connected was to excavate and cut apart the system to find the plumbing problem. Leaks, clogs, and reduced water pressure were all addressed with jackhammers and damaging equipment. That is no longer the case; we now use camera inspection to see what is going on within your plumbing system without doing any damage. Camera Inspection is helpful for diagnosing multiple issues with drain clogs, leaks, and pipe damage.
Sewer Camera Inspection Benefits
Besides the obvious benefit of less destruction, while looking for the source of the problem, camera inspection also has other benefits for homeowners, including:
Backwater valves stop flooding. Sewer backflow is a problem in the City of Toronto; we experience very heavy rainfall during the summer months, this can cause the municipal sewer system to back up through the sewer drains of homes and properties and result in a flooded basement. The City of Toronto (and neighboring cities) provide flood prevention rebates to aid in the cost of installing devices, including a backwater valve that Toronto residents can depend on.
