Our Outstanding Ottawa Clogged Drain Services

If you trialed out absolutely everything to get rid of that blockage from plunging to concocting natural home remedies with baking soda and vinegar, it’s about time to call the head honchos to clear away your drainage lines.

Our professional drain cleaning services provide effective and long-lasting results from using advanced inspection cameras, and pressurized water tools to even using eco-friendly drain care products. Our expert plumbers will have your drainage pipes spick-and-span and will even conduct a plumbing diagnosis and inspection of your home's water supply and wastewater disposal lines prior to the cleaning service to determine the cause of your clogged drains and make sure they don’t come back.

Specialized Tools And Techniques

Although you can hoard basic plumber’s equipment from your local home hardware store, it’s not the professional-grade toolset that we possess. Plus, you may not have the know-how or technique to properly use the equipment. If anything you’ll end up shelling out cash for a time-consuming DIY repair that could cause worse damage when it backfires. Your best bet is to rely on your skilled technician who is trained to use a wide range of tools from drill and power augers to taze plungers and wet and dry vacuums.

For example, drain snaking utilizes an auger which is a flexible, slender cable that is inserted into your drain pipes, upon which it’s maneuvered inside the bends and crevices of your drain lines until you encounter the derbies. Using a spiraling motion, the auger permeates the solid blockage and slowly pulls it out of the drain. It’s not a foolproof technique, as many times the auger only chips away at the blockage rather than completely hooking and removing it. Plus for those with bad hand-eye coordination skills, you can easily scuff the insides of your pipes. If this method doesn’t work your plumber will move on to other services that only a professional can provide.

Video Camera Inspection

Although before even snaking through your drain lines, your expert technician may opt to capture video of what’s astir deep inside your pipes. They’ll insert a small camera attached to a flexible cable and LED light to explore the possibilities of your drain lines and simultaneously capture high-definition and real-time footage of muck that’s stuck inside of your pipes.

They’ll carefully voyage to troublesome spots uncovering, for example, deeply dug-in tree roots that have pierced holes in your pipes leaving them fractured with leakages. They’ll record and replay this footage on a CCTV monitor so you know what your home’s plumbing system is up against and so that you can make an educated decision about getting cleaning and repair services for clogged drains.

Hydroscrub Jetting

This is one of the most innovative techniques at our disposal. HydroScrub® jetting effectively and effortlessly blasts pesky clogs away using a highly-pressurized stream of water to pulse away rigid blockage leaving your drain pipes clean and clear. The water pressure levels reach an impressive 3,500 psi as they open the floodgates with 68 litres of water per minute to clear out the pipe.

Hydro jetting is also the most sanitary procedure too as it pushes the debris out through your drain lines directly into Ottawa’s sewer system, whilst also blasting away any soap scum, fat, oil, grease, hair, and more items that shouldn’t have been flushed down your drains in the first place. Other methods like plunging, snaking, or even removing the P-trap of a plumbing fixture to clean out the icky guck inside actually pull the clog back up through the pipes into your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Clogged Drain Services

What Are Some Red Flags I Have A Clogged Drain?

  • Bubbling toilets
  • Gurgling noises coming from plumbing fixtures
  • Water pooling in your sink, bathtub, or shower
  • Water backed up in your plumbing fixtures and takes forever to drain from the sink, bathtub, or shower
  • Standing water in plumbing fixtures
  • Drain flies
  • Odd odors coming from drains
  • Toilet water levels drastically fluctuate
  • Soaring utility bills

What Is The Most Common Cause Of Clogged Drains?

Usually, drain lines clog as a result of accumulated debris, including dirt, hair, soap scum, skin flakes, food leftovers like eggshells, rice, pasta, coffee grounds, tea leaves, flushable wipes, paper towels, and more. Adding a drain stopper like a mesh hair catcher will help to avoid a blockage from forming. But most important of all be extra vigilant of what you flush down the drain!

What Is A Effective DIY Hack To Get Rid Of A Clog?

Although most home remedies are ineffective for totally clearing clogged drains, some can actually help loosen up the clog for our technician to easily blast away. For example, one concoction you can make is by mixing equal parts of baking soda and vinegar together. First, you would flush the drain with piping hot water, then pour down this mixture and let it sit for about 30 minutes. After that, flush it out with more boiling hot water to clear away the clog.

Avoid using any kind of chemical drain cleaner to deal with a clogged drain, as it can damage your pipes and create complications for other efforts to clear the clogged pipe later on.

Who Is Responsible For A Clogged Drain?

You are! That’s right, you are in charge of drain lines inside the boundaries of your property, and anything on the outskirts of your home beyond the border is designated to the municipal sewage system.
