Lower Town is one of the most unique and interesting communities in Ottawa. Its position on a peninsula between the Rideau River, Rideau Canal, and Ottawa River gives residents and visitors excellent views of local scenery in both Ontario and Quebec. Local amenities and attractions, like Major's Hill Park, the National Gallery, and MacDonald Gardens—plus the restaurants and shops in ByWard Market—all offer plenty of things to do, sights to see, and delicious morsels to eat. These unique features have persisted throughout all of Lower Town's many periods of major development, but the same cannot be said for the community's plumbing.

Property in Lower Town has been the victim of many plumbing issues, from the effects of both aging pipes and newer Kitec plumbing. Every homeowner and businessperson in Ottawa should have access to reliable service from a local plumber. The team of licensed, knowledgeable experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Ottawa is your best option for professional services in Lower Town. Our years of experience and practical expertise culminate in our wide range of maintenance, repair, and installation services, from faucet replacement to collapsed sewer line repairs. Our objective is to support our Lower Town neighbours in any way we can.

Residential Plumbers in Lower Town, Ottawa, ON

Town houses, detached homes, and apartments in Lower Town all rely on similar systems to deliver water and remove waste. Your pipes and fixtures supply that vital resource, water. Your drains and bathroom fixtures take away that nasty material, waste. You depend on both of these systems throughout your day. It's reasonable to expect that they're always working.

Unfortunately, nothing is designed to last forever. All pipes eventually succumb to time's effects. As materials build up inside of lines, your plumbing's efficiency decreases and its structural integrity gets weaker. That's just one of the reasons you should get annual plumbing maintenance. Without regular attention, a leak, clog, or burst is inevitable—even more so if you've got Kitec plumbing in your walls.

Residential Drain Cleaning

At some point in your life, you're going to be faced with a clogged drain. Whether it's in a toilet, sink, basement drain, or some other fixture, it will happen. You can prepare yourself by purchasing a plunger if you haven't already, but some clogs are too strong for even an average plunger to fix. At times like that, your best option is drain cleaning service from a professional, local plumber.

Our team of drain cleaning experts are trained with powerful, specialized tools that are designed to remove even indestructible drain clogs and blast away tree roots. After we've used equipment like augers and hydro jets, we can also perform a full video inspection to determine what caused your blockage and how you can avoid it in the future.

Signs you need drain cleaning in Lower Town, Ottawa:

  • Slow draining in kitchen sinks or bathroom fixtures
  • Standing water or waste backups
  • Strange noises in your pipes or fixtures (especially any gurgling)
  • Water pressure issues
  • Unpleasant odours emanating from bathrooms and kitchen fixtures
  • Insects appearing around drains

Drain cleaning isn't just a great response to present problems. It's also a perfect preventive solution that provides preemptive protection from future problems. In addition, service from a professional, licensed plumber will also mean that you'll have peace of mind knowing that these issues aren't related to a larger plumbing problem in your home. Since many of these issues are also related to serious sewer drain clogs, that peace of mind can't be undervalued.

Residential Repairs & Replacement

Leaky faucets, dirty water, hot water supply issues, and other small annoyances are also all common problems for homeowners in Lower Town. Over time, degrading or faulty pipes will become more susceptible to issues that lead to water leakage and eventually thousands of dollars in property damage to walls, floors, and furniture.

If you have faulty pipes or fixtures, we're here to support you with our proven, reliable repairs and a wide selection of guaranteed parts and replacement fixtures. Hot water tanks are especially problematic when it comes to Kitec plumbing because of the effects that higher temperatures have on those lines, so it's not rare to experience hot water supply issues that lead to water damage. However, water leakage can occur around any kind of pipe material at any time.

If you're unsure about the state of your Lower Town home's plumbing, or you're experiencing new issues like a drop in water pressure or unusually high utility bills, we would be happy to perform a full plumbing inspection for you, complete any necessary repairs, and help with replacement installations for any failing fixtures.

We can fix and replace:

  • Burst pipes
  • Leaks
  • Sewer lines
  • Sinks
  • Faucets
  • Tubs & showers
  • Water heaters & radiant heating
  • Sump pumps
  • Backflow prevention devices
  • And more!
