Our Toronto Plumbing Services

Commercial Plumbing

Start Drain are licensed, bonded, and fully insured commercial plumbers. We tackle clogged drains and other plumbing concerns, before problems start affecting the continuity of your business. We cover the entirety of the Greater Toronto area and are on call for emergency plumbing repairs 24/7.

Residential Plumbing

When left unattended, leaks, clogged drains, and other plumbing problems can lead to significant property damage. We intervene quickly to prevent this from happening. From heating system repairs to frozen pipes, we work quickly to make your home yours again. We also offer 24/7 emergency repairs all across Toronto.

Leaky Pipes & Faucets

Dripping taps and loose faucet fittings are by and large harmless. However, leaks which are left untreated for long periods can cause damage to floors, ceilings, and drywall areas. We, therefore, pinpoint the precise cause and location of leaks, before problems have a chance to escalate.

Water Softener Install

Residential water softeners provide homeowners with a variety of benefits. Water is healthier for the body. Skin feels softer. Even dishes and glassware appear brighter. However, water softener system installations always need to be tailored to the exact kind of pipes and plumbing systems which are present in a property.

Plumbing Replace

Replacing all of the plumbing in a property can be costly. However, no plumbing system lasts forever. Thankfully, we can undertake full plumbing installation replacement, as well as the replacement of individual pipes and drains. We can also replace plumbing in specific areas such as bathrooms, to keep costs to a minimum.

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes don’t always burst. In many cases, thawing pipes slowly can avert the need to replace vital plumbing components. We do this by warming pipes gradually. This allows us to check for defects and carry out quick repairs, wherever and whenever these might be necessary.

Water Line Repairs

Water lines transport water from the mains into your home. Being below ground, lines themselves are susceptible to damage by tree roots, winter weather, and water pressure anomalies. Thankfully, we can quickly repair and replace incoming water lines with minimal fuss and minimal disruption to your property.

Sump Pump Install

Sump pumps keep basements dryer and free from flooding. Namely, by automatically removing accumulated ground and drain water. Ideal for guarding against flooding, we install sump pumps all across Toronto. We can also carry out repairs and annual preventative maintenance on any existing sump pump unit.

Drain Snaking

A clog in a drain might seem like a minor inconvenience. However, when plunging and trap cleaning fails, there is only one alternative. Usually, a quick and easy process, drain snaking clears debris blocking drains, without damaging pipe linings. Where necessary, we can also investigate blockages beforehand via camera inspection.

Clogged Toilet Drains

Clogged Drains

Blocked drains around homes and businesses pose a significant human health risk. We provide fast relief from clogged drains and sewer pipes. Often affecting critical areas of the home, we clear blockages fast. We use camera and pressure washing technology to identify obstructions and always keep any mess to a minimum.


Backwater Installations

If you live in a suburb of Toronto prone to flooding, backwater valve installation is a must. During the 2013 Toronto flood, many properties were damaged by water rising through existing plumbing systems. Backwater valves prevent this. Namely, by stopping water rising back through sewer and inlet lines into properties.

Sewer Line Repair

Contrary to popular belief, it is not just iron and clay pipes which can be compromised by corrosion and earth movements. Even plastic sewer system pipes can spring leaks. Thankfully, we can reline pipes and lay completely new sewer lines, all without breaking your all-important budget.


Drain Cleaning

If your tub or sink is draining slower than usual, or won’t drain at all, your drain is either clogged or damaged. Startdrain are happy to unclog a drain, and are available for kitchen drain cleaning, bathroom drain cleaning, and basement drain cleaning

Drain Camera Inspection

Camera Inspections

Blocked sewers and drains can be a sign of damage to pipe linings. In such cases, drain snaking and pressure washing won’t guarantee permanent relief. Thankfully, we can undertake careful camera inspections of drains. In doing so, we can identify serious pipe failings and plan remedial action, ahead of problems worsening.

Sewer SystemsBackups

Sewer Systems Backups

Gurgling drains, standing water in basements, and drain backups can all be a sign of a damaged sewer system. In every case, the cause may vary. However, if left untreated, backups can cause significant property damage. We prevent this thanks to thorough inspections and quick repair of plumbing and sewer systems.

Customer Reviews

Our happy customers and partners

“We had no idea that the standing water and occasional smell in our yard was due to a severe sewer pipe defect. We cringed at the cost we imagined a repair would incur. However, Start Drain kept this to an absolute minimum and completed all work a full day ahead of schedule.”
Alex Review about startdrain plumbing services
Johnathan Barker
“We were miss-sold what we assumed would be an easy doer-upper property. Post-purchase, we realised we needed a near full plumbing system replacement. Start Drain worked a miracle for us by bypassing old pipes and identifying precisely what needed replacing and what didn’t. Lifesaver. Thank you!”

“Top notch service from start to finish. Our new premises had appalling basement damp. Start Drain installed a new sump pump in next to no time. They were also kind enough to give us thorough advice concerning outside gutter repairs which we really hadn’t noticed were so long overdue.”

Start Drain is first in Toronto for clogged drains and 24/7 emergency plumbing repairs. As commercial and domestic plumbing experts, we pair round-the-clock availability with Toronto’s best plumbing prices and quality of service. Even better, we’re always happy to answer new customer questions.

Why should I call Start Drain and not a cheap plumber who advertises locally?

At Start Drain, we understand how costly even minor plumbing repairs can seem to some people. However, whenever you hire a cheap plumber, you risk working with an unlicensed, uninsured tradesperson, often the plumber does not have liability insurance WSIB insurance and some times not even plumbing/gas license. When this is the case, overall repair costs can spiral in the long-term.

What hourly rate do most Toronto plumbers charge?

Plumber hourly rates are determined on an individual basis. However, in Canada, the average gross salary of a fully licensed and insured plumber is $83,360. Naturally, rates in major cities like Toronto can be slightly higher. Average plumber hourly rates in Toronto, therefore, rest (approximately) at between $70 – $120 per hour depending on the job and property type residential/commercial/industrial.

Plumbing prices I’m being quoted don’t seem to match plumber hourly rates in my area. Why is this?

Most plumbers and tradespeople charge slightly higher rates during the evenings and on weekends. If call-out charges you have been quoted seem higher than you initially anticipated, this might be the reason why. As well as this, it needs to be remembered that plumber hourly rates reflect time on-site only. Rates do not reflect added material or equipment costs.

What kind of plumbing prices/costs should I expect when replacing my entire home plumbing system?

At Start Drain, we can replace existing plumbing systems and install new systems in newly constructed properties. On average, our prices range from $8,000 to $10,000 when plumbing a 1,500 square foot property.
To help Toronto homeowners save, we can also offer to replace copper piping with PEX (plastic) piping. When this is the case, overall plumbing prices can be reduced to as little as $4,000 to $6,000.

What will it cost to replace a toilet in my home?

A typical new toilet installation will usually take around 2-hours, and cost $350. Prices can be reduced to as little as $120 for basic installations. However, costs can also increase if extensive modifications need to be made to existing water inlets and wastewater pipes.

How much will it cost to unclog a drain on my property?

At Start Drain, we’re drain and wastewater pipe specialists. For this reason, you can count on us to tackle even the most stubborn clogs and blockages.
Most clogs are relatively easy for us to remove. However, the time it takes and the tools we will have to use can vary in accordance with where a clog is located. In kitchens and bathrooms, clogged sink, bath, and shower drains, usually cost between $145 and 220 to unclog.
Laundry drains can be trickier to unclog due to their position at ground level. As such, repairs can cost between $145 and $210. Typically, sewer and toilet blockages will also attract a higher repair rate of between $145 and $195.

What is the difference between a licensed plumber and an unlicensed plumber?

At Start Drain, all of our plumbers are fully licensed and insured. This means that our plumbers pass real licensing exams. More importantly, in the unlikely event that we cause damage to a property, our liability insurance will cover the cost of any repairs.
Sadly, unlicensed plumbers often have no formal qualifications and are not insured. This being the case, always make sure to check the credentials of cheap plumbers. Alternatively, simply call Start Drain for quality assured repairs which you can rely on first time every time.
