Your sewer line is one of the most hardworking components in your entire plumbing system. But because it is used more than once a day, it can be susceptible to major wear and tear and other types of damages.
The most common causes of sewer line problems include:
Since the majority of your sewer line is located outside the home, extreme cold and heat can cause the pipe material to weaken and break.
Tree roots always follow where there is water. When your sewer line is located near a tree, its roots can infiltrate the inside of your pipes, causing them to clog or break.
If your plumbing pipes are nearing their expiration, you’ll notice frequent issues including clogging or visible corrosion.
Whether you’ve recently finished a renovation, landscaping, or other home improvement project that required the use of heavy machinery, it’s important to check your sewer lines for any accidental damage.
At Gold Medal Plumbing and Drain, we use sewer camera inspections to determine the exact problem with your sewer line. If it’s a clog, we can easily clean it using hydrojetting. However, if there’s a break or crack in the pipeline, our Mississauga plumbers can provide you with reliable pipe repair or replacement using trenchless methods.

It is illegal (and not a very environmentally or plumbing friendly practice) to connect any rain or ground water to the sewer or a septic tank. IF, however, you do hookup – at the very least put a trap in the line to keep sewer gas out of the house.
If you’ve installed a new fill valve, and are certain that everything else in the toilet is working properly, leaks could very well be high water pressure. If your water pressure is so high that it leaks past a Fluidmaster 400A or another new ballcock (aka: “toilet fill valve”) – then you NEED a pressure reducing valve. Other water pipes, connectors, clothes washing machine hoses and your water heater could leak or break. Best to get a water pressure regulator if your pressure to the house is more than 60 pounds
Yes, drain pipes do dry out and get real rough. Will it clear up with use? Maybe. Is there anything you can really do about it? Not after the fact. Prevention is best here – try to run some water through infrequently used drains every so often to keep this from happening.
When the lowest plumbing fixture in the house overflows when another fixture (like a clothes washing machine) is draining; most commonly the septic tank needs to be pumped, there is a break in the sewer pipe outside the house or the main drain is plugged somewhere. However, the washing machine line could be connected to close to the “suds rinse zone”, meaning the washer waste ties into the waste or soil line of another fixture too close downstream from the problem fixture. What is happening is the water is rushing by the suds at a high velocity, pushing ahead of the suds. Because the fixture is the closest place of relief, the suds will come up into the fixture, even a toilet. The code requires that a washing machine, kitchen sink, shower, and dishwasher line be connected at least 5′ downstream from any fixture branch. This could be just one of many possibilities for the bubbling and backup. We strongly recommend contacting a licensed plumber to help you diagnose your individual situation.
