Replace sewer lines in North York

On average a property owner will need to replace sewer lines once in a lifetime. Pipes are not supposed to serve forever and the older the sewer pipes are the more likely homeowners are going to have problems with them. Although modern PCV pipes are supposed to have a lifespan of over 100 years, temperature drops may cause sewer pipes cracks. Cracked sewer pipes are not just a costly repair —they can result in extensive and pricey damage to your property and lead to serious health risks. It’s important that drain line repair and sewer line replacement tasks should always be performed by certified, professional plumbers.

Solved Sewage Backup ProblemsA homeowner from North York contacted Tornado Plumbing team because he had persistent drain issues. The house was built in the late 1980s and he had a clay sewer line. This material can only last for 50 or 60 years and the homeowner was recommended to replace clay pipes because these problems would only get worse over time.

Tornado Plumbing team are fully trained in the use of state-of-the-art equipment and technologies to replace damaged sewer lines. We use new trenchless methods that lead to less damage to driveways and yards than commonly used traditional repair and replacement methods. Besides, these methods are more cost-effective.

In this case, we used the minimally invasive pipe burst method which eliminates the need for digging long and deep trenches and is now widely used in place of traditional sewer line replacement. The entire sewer line replacement was done in a day. We made small holes to access the places at the beginning and at the end of the damaged clay pipe. After that, we pulled a new plastic pipe through the existing clay pipe which burst the old damaged pipe into small pieces while simultaneously laying new pipe.

The old clay pipe was seamlessly replaced with a new plastic pipe and we had the drains running quickly again.
