The service life of sewer pipes directly depends on the quality of their installation. However, even the most reliable assembly will not protect the system from regular wear and tear. Meaning, plumbers should conduct regular preventive maintenance and inspections. A timely detected defect and prompt repair of drain pipes in Toronto will help avoid major repair projects, which will save you time and money.
Sewer system emergencies are far from uncommon. Even with regular drain maintenance, a pipe breakdown can occur at the most inopportune moment under the influence of various circumstances. The most common causes of it’s failure include:
All of these can lead to clogged pipes, stagnant water, cracks, depressurized joints, and ruptures.
Detecting damage in the drain system on your own is usually not too difficult. All you need to know are a few telltale signs of a worn or broken sewer line.
The very first and most obvious sign of a malfunction is an inadequate drain rate in the toilet, sink, shower or bathtub. This can indicate a clog or cracked pipes.
Sewer fumes and the rapid growth of fungus in your home are a sign that problems exist within your sewage system. Sanitation systems such as drain pipes should be airtight, with the exception of roof vents, and not create high levels of moisture behind walls. Foul odors and mold indicate broken piping or clogged vents, which can also lead to flooding.
The appearance of flaws in the building structure is a symptom of a leaking main drain pipe. If you notice even one of these signs, you should call a professional immediately for drain repair in Toronto.

The appearance of vermin is a reason to check the condition of the plumbing and drain systems. Through holes in the pipes, rodents, cockroaches, and bedbugs most often get into the house. The cause of this problem must be eliminated immediately before insects and rodents harm the health of the occupants and the integrity of the building structure.
