If this is the case you can minimize your expenses while repairing the drain by utilizing the  Toronto Tree Root Drain Grant program. In basic terms, this grant works when city-owned tree roots are blocking the sewer connection pipe between the home’s exterior foundation wall and the property line. It gets a little more complex when the investigation needs to be done on the origin of trees that are filling your drain roots and when the drain is broken on both the home owner’s side and the city side.
