Lead water pipes replacement (Toronto)
Hi all. I own an old home from the 1950. I contacted 311 and they had no record whether the main water line had been replaced so suggested I likely have lead pipes and would be eligible for their lead replacement program. I had the city contractor (Utility Force) come to visit the home for a quote and I was shocked. They quoted me $13k + HST to replace just my portion (ie from the city main line to the meter inside my house). The distance is approx 45 feet, replacement line would be 3/4 inches. They would torpedo from the side of my house to the main water line. Does this quote make sense? I’ve read up on this forums and people have quoted 3-5k on average, but haven’t tracked the distances involved. Thanks in advance.
