"Never in my life have I experienced a better contractor"

Pavel and his team are by far the best contractors I have ever worked with. I had a sump pump and back valve and main drain issue. He came and fixed everything in one day – the work was done perfectly and at a very reasonable price compared to other industrial plumbers. Since then there have been a few other issues that I have called Pavel about. He is always around to answer his phone – and he always stops by almost immediately to help. Never in my life have I experienced a better contractor. I very highly recommend Pavel and his team!

These guys saved our life by showing up in time and replaced a leaky pipe easily! After that, we scheduled an appointment for the next day to check everything out, so the leaking problem won't bother us again because of the extremely cold temperatures. We had great communication and we received all the answers that we needed for future prevention of the problem. Well done job! I would say, above and beyond.

My wife and I purchased an older home in East York with the understanding that we were going to need to do a fair bit of work to modernize the infrastructure. Plumbing being a major focus. I contracted MT to: replace cast iron plumbing stacks (there were two in my home), plumb our new kitchen main floor, and also a basement kitchen that we have, as well as some plumbing for two new bathrooms. We also decided to replace the clay sewers in the home which were about 75 years old and also install a backflow valve. Eddy, Pavel and their team of plumbers did a great job.

Before Installing a Sump Pump

The benefits of digging a sump pit and installing a sump pump are therefore countless. However, before you make the installation, there are certain points that you should consider:
  • Understand the location of your sewer server line because this is where the water from the basement will drain into.
  • Understand the location of the homes main water line because you might end up puncturing the main piping. You could also compromise the quality of the water getting into the home depending on the position of the pit that you install in relation to the water supply.
  • Understand the thickness of the concrete and the gravel beneath it before starting the digging process.
  • Get a sump pump that has a backup battery so it can function when there is a power outage, which happens a lot when it floods.
  • Get an expert who can do sump pump repair and maintenance when needed.
These are all considerations that can be put into perspective by a quality and reliable plumber. Contact us for the best assessment and sump pump installation rates.

    "Crew was helpful and courteous"

    Pavel at MT Drains was very helpful in assessing the problem of water seeping through the back wall of my old house into the basement. Required cutting the deck to dig down 5 or 6 feet and waterproofing the wall with membrane and sealant and laying weeping tile. Also installed a sump pump to drain in case of excess water. Work was done over 4 days. Crew was helpful and courteous.


    Sump pump installation is an easy process for our plumbers. The pumps can be incorporated into the house floor plan even after it has been completed. It is best to involve a plumber in the installation process because they will know the right pump to install and how to create maximum efficiency. If the house does not have a sump pit, you will need the plumber to dig one and properly configure it for the installation of the pump. The steps to install a sump pump are as follows: Find the lowest point where water is most likely to collect. Dig through the foundation of the basement and place the pump in place. If necessary run an electrical connection nearby to plug the pump in. Battery backup pump is recommended by insurance companies in case of a power outage.

    The excess water can get into your house by many means such as from flooding, leaking faucets, and other plumbing and will naturally flow to the lowest part of your home. Most of the pumps have an automated flotation system which automatically switches on and starts pumping the water once it reaches a certain level. The water is pumped out of the house and drained away from your home’s foundation, leading to flood prevention and preserving the home’s structural integrity.

The water is pumped out of the house and drained away from your home’s foundation, leading to flood prevention and preserving the home’s structural integrity.

    The two main types are submersible and pedestal sump pumps. Submersible pumps are designed to function while submerged in water, while pedestal pumps sit above the water level.

    Submersible pumps are quieter, more powerful, and can handle larger volumes of water but are typically more expensive. Pedestal pumps are not as powerful, but they are easier to maintain and have a longer lifespan.

    With proper maintenance, a sump pump should last between 5 to 15 years.

    Yes, sump pumps can be hardwired into your home’s electrical system, or they can be battery-powered for backup purposes.


    Yes, if a sump pump fails or is overwhelmed by the volume of water, it can result in a flooded basement. Regular maintenance and testing can help prevent this.


    Common issues include clogged discharge lines, stuck switches, worn out motors, or power failures. Regular maintenance can prevent most of these issues, but some may require professional repair.

    It is recommended to service your sump pump at least once a year. However, if your sump pump runs frequently due to high water tables or wet weather, you might need to check it more often.

    The cost to install a water pump in Barrie typically ranges from $300 to $800 for basic models, while more advanced systems or complex installations could cost up to $3,500 or more.
