Looking For Drain Repair Services In Toronto?

Drain issues are more than just an inconvenience – they can cause severe challenges to the functionality of your home or business. Drain problems often start small, such as minor leaks or slow draining, but without addressing these problems, they can escalate into major concerns and plumbing emergencies. Unlike visible clogs that can be spotted and dealt with relatively easily, many drain problems occur out of sight, manifesting as structural damages within the pipes, unnoticed corrosion, or damage from external factors or extreme weather conditions.

A fully functioning drainage system is essential for the smooth running of daily activities. When drains are compromised, it can disrupt everything from basic hygiene practices to kitchen operations. Waiting for a problem to become a full-blown emergency not only causes inconvenience but also leads to increased repair costs. Temporary solutions like over-the-counter remedies are often inadequate for serious drain issues and can be harmful to the environment.

Common Drain Problems in Toronto

Toronto is a vibrant and diverse city but faces unique challenges when it comes to drain problems. Some of the common drainage issues that Toronto residents encounter include:

  • Tree Roots: tree roots are the most common culprits when we are confronted with sewer line damage. Tree roots grow towards wet and moist areas (your drain pipes) and can make their way over time into the smallest of cracks. The roots cause significant damages and often lead to the need for underground repairs.
  • Blockage/Damages: When the main sewer line gets blocked or damaged, sewer backup happens, which makes the wastewater flow back into the home through the drains. Various factors, such as heavy rainfall, tree roots, grease, or foreign objects (such as children’s toys) can become lodged in the pipes causing sewer backup. Sewer backup can pose severe health and safety risks and damage the property and belongings.
  • Aging Infrastructure: in all cities, aging infrastructure is a concern when it comes to plumbing. Over time, pipes can corrode, weaken, and become more susceptible to leaks and breaks. This deterioration is often exacerbated by seasonal temperature fluctuations and environmental stressors.
  • Drain Pipe Leakage: When the drain pipes develop cracks or holes, allowing water to leak out of the system drain pipe leakage occurs. Corrosion, freezing and thawing, soil movement, or poor installation can cause drain pipe leakage. Drain pipe leakage can result in water damage, mold growth, and increased water bills.
  • Extreme Weather / Freezing Pipes: Toronto’s harsh winters, characterized by extreme cold and strong wind chills, significantly increase the risk of pipes freezing. Frozen pipes can rapidly turn into burst pipes, leading to plumbing emergencies and often significant damage. Utilizing our advanced pipe thawing equipment, we can efficiently and safely resolve this issue faster than ever before.
  • Drain Odour: This refers to the unpleasant smell from the drains, usually due to the accumulation of organic matter, bacteria, or sewer gas. Drain odour can be caused by clogged drains, dry traps, venting issues, or sewer problems. Drain odour can affect the indoor air quality and comfort of the home.

Signs of Drain Problems

Drain problems can be frustrating and costly to deal with, especially if they are left untreated for too long. Therefore, it is crucial to be aware of the signs of drain problems and act quickly to resolve them. Some of the signs of drain problems include:

  • Slow Draining: slow drainage is among the most common and apparent signs of drain problems. If the water takes longer than usual to drain from the sink, tub, shower, or toilet, the drain pipe probably has a partial blockage. Slow drains can cause water to overflow or back up in other fixtures.
  • Foul Odours: odours are another common and noticeable sign of drain problems. If the drains emit a rotten, there is likely a build-up of organic matter, bacteria, or sewer gas in the drain pipe. Foul odours can also indicate a severe sewer problem, such as a broken or collapsed sewer line.
  • For more information on Sewer Odour or Sewer Camera Inspection please visit our dedicated pages or reach out to one of our plumbing experts.
  • Gurgling Sounds: gurgling sounds are less common but still a sign of drain problems. If the drains make gurgling or bubbling sounds, it means that there is air trapped in the drain pipe. Gurgling sounds can indicate a venting problem, which affects the pressure and flow of the drainage system.
  • Water Stains: This is a subtle but severe sign of drain problems. If there are water stains on the walls, ceilings, or floors near the drains, there is most likely a leak in the drain pipe. Water stains can also indicate a structural problem, such as a foundation crack or a sagging pipe.

It’s important to be aware of the signs of drain problems and to address them promptly. While these symptoms might seem minor, ignoring them can lead to rapid escalation, resulting in far more significant issues and potential plumbing emergencies.

Drain Repair Process

Morrison Plumbing & Mechanical offers professional and reliable drain repair services in Toronto. We have the experience, equipment, and expertise to handle any drain problem. From simple clogs to complex issues, our plumbing experts will work to ensure your problem is resolved effectively and efficiently. Our core process consists of 3 main steps:


If we can’t visually see any drain damage, our team uses high-resolution cameras to inspect the drain pipe and identify the location and cause of the problem. We also check the condition and integrity of the pipe and look for any signs of further damage or deterioration.


We work to accurately diagnose the root cause of your plumbing issues and to provide you with the best possible solution. Our approach is transparent and customer-focused. We provide a detailed, free estimate of both the cost and the time required for the repair. Our team does not cut corners. Our goal is to offer you the most efficient and effective solution, ensuring that you receive a long-lasting repair that aligns with your expectations and requirements.


We use the most suitable and effective method to repair the drain pipe. This will entirely depend on the type and severity of the drain problem. Some of the methods we use include:

  • Drain Snaking: this process involves using a flexible metal cable with a cutting head to clear the blockage in the drain pipe. This technique is quick and easy to remove common clogs like hair, grease, or food scraps.
  • Hydro Jetting: this process involves using a high-pressure water jet to blast away the blockage and debris in the drain pipe and is a powerful and thorough way to remove stubborn clogs, such as tree roots, mineral deposits, or concrete.
  • Drain Replacement: this process involves digging up and replacing the drain pipe with a new one. This is often a last resort and only necessary when the pipe is beyond repair or poses a serious risk to the property or the environment.
  • Drain Testing: We test the drain pipe to ensure proper functioning and no leaks or blockages. We also clean up the work area and dispose of any waste materials.
  • Drain Lining: this process is a last resort option. It involves inserting a resin-coated liner into the drain pipe and curing it with heat or UV light. This technique creates a new pipe within the old pipe, sealing any cracks or holes and restoring the flow and function of the drain pipe. Drain lining is a non-invasive and durable way to repair leaky or damaged pipes.

In every repair, our goal is to ensure the longevity and reliability of your plumbing system. We aim to leave you with a fully restored, efficient, and durable drainage system.

Drain Maintenance and Preventative Measures

Drain problems can be costly and inconvenient to deal with. They can often be prevented or minimized with proper drain maintenance and preventative measures. Some of the tips for avoiding drain problems in Toronto are:

  • Avoid putting anything that can clog the drain pipe, such as grease, oil, coffee grounds, egg shells, hair, or sanitary products, down the drain. Use a drain strainer or a garbage disposal to catch any solid waste and dispose of it in the trash.
  • Flush the drain pipe regularly with hot water, vinegar, or baking soda to dissolve organic matter or grease build-up. You can also use a natural or enzymatic drain cleaner to break down clogs or odours.
  • Inspect the drain pipe periodically for any signs of leaks, cracks, or corrosion. If you notice any damage or degradation, contact a professional plumber to repair it immediately.
  • Book a professional drain cleaning service at least once a year to remove any accumulated debris or roots in the drain pipe. This habit will also help detect and prevent potential sewer problems or plumbing emergencies, such as a broken or collapsed sewer line.

Costs of Drain Repair Services

The cost of drain repair services in Toronto depends on several factors, including:

  • The type and extent of the drain problem: Different drain problems require different methods and materials to fix them. For example, you can clear a simple clog with a drain snake. At the same time, a leaky pipe may need a drain lining or a replacement—the more complex and severe the problem, the higher the repair cost.
  • The location and accessibility of the drain pipe: The drain pipe may be located underground, inside the walls, or under the floors. The more difficult it is to access the pipe, the more labour and equipment are needed to repair it, which could also affect the time and cost of the repair.
  • The quality and experience of the plumber: The plumber you hire for your drain repair should be licensed, insured, and reputable. The more qualified and experienced the plumber, the more likely they are to provide a high-quality and efficient service. The cheapest option does not often yield the best results and experience and expertise can impact the pricing.
