Some presence of lead has been found in the City of Toronto’s water supply. The city has responded to this by implementing a “Lead Pipe Replacement Program.” 3,000 will be replaced over the coming years.
The requirements of the program are as follows:
As with anything there are couple of catches. The city will only replace the pipe up to your property line. The pipes on your private property have to be replaced by you. The schedule is meant to encourage home owners to contact professional contractors to do the work at the same time.
If your home was built before 1950 there is a good chance that your pipes need to replaced. The city of Toronto has issued the following recommendation to homeowners.

Sewer Pit Replacement By Best Plumber Toronto
I had an old sewer pit in the house with improper lid, which didn't seal the pit properly, could feel the sewer smell in the basement. Called several companies and every one of them said the only way is to replace the whole pit (they can't make a custom lid for the existing one). Other companies quoted more than $4000 for the job, plus 2-3 days of work(=several days of mess in the house). I tried to resolve the issue by other means: installed a fan, tried to seal the pit in different ways. Nothing helped. A friend of mine suggested them as a reliable and reasonable company. They came the next day after my call, gave me a much better quote ($1000 less than other companies), did an amazing very clean job in 1 DAY! Since then, my problem was resolved - no more sewer smell in the house. The pit works perfectly and will last a long time. I am very satisfied with their services and wish I knew about them earlier and didn't spend money on other stuff that didn't work. Would definitely recommend to everybody I know.
