Make the call for safety before clearing a sewer
To prevent the risk of a gas leak, explosion or fire, call 1-800-400-2255 before clearing a blocked sewer.
If you need to clear a blocked sewer, be sure to call for a safety inspection first. The sewer pipe could intersect with the natural gas line under your lawn. This is called a cross bore and is not an immediate safety risk unless the gas line is damaged by your plumber’s motorized or water-jetting equipment. That could cause a gas leak, creating a potentially dangerous situation for you and your family.
Your first call should always be to Ontario One Call at 1-800-400-2255.
They’re on duty 24/7 so urgent calls like these can be dealt with right away. A free on-site inspection will be carried out promptly, and then work on your sewer can be completed safely.
