Most people understand that their sewer system transports the waste from their house to the city’s sewer lines, but if there is a sewer backup that occurs in the Toronto area, they need to call Mister Plumber for help.

A sewer backup is a very bad situation, as it could mean raw sewage leaking into their home, and cause the need for extensive repairs to their sewer lines. Here are some common reasons Mister Plumber might have to come to your home to fix sewer or other plumbing issues:

Clogs Can Cause Sewer Backup

One of the most common causes of a sewer backup is a clogged drain or stopped up toilet. If you suddenly see water backup in your drains or toilet, or hear a strange gurgling noise, that is a red flag for troubles. A clog can happen anywhere in the lines, and the experts at Mister Plumber are specialists in determining where the problem is and knowing how to fix it.

Tree Roots Another Reason for Clogged Sewers

Tree roots are yet another reason sewer lines sometimes get clogged up, especially if your home has been there for a long time and there are large trees in your yard. A sewer backup in a new house is more likely to be something like someone putting feminine hygiene products or paper towels or other items down the toilet or drains.

What To Do Until Help Arrives

If you suspect a sewer problem, be sure to call Mister Plumber right away at 416-939-1530. However, to minimize the damage before our expert technicians arrive, you need to relieve the pressure in the lines and be sure to turn off your water main. Plus, if you have access to the sewer cleanout line, which looks like a short, white pipe with a cap on it, you should take off the cap so that the water drains into the yard, not into your home. It is usually somewhere near the house.
