Aqua-Drain Sewer Services is the quick responder that home, business and municipal customers can rely on.

When you consider the crowd that tends to make the annual PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies, an emergency-service sewer and plumbing business may not be the first thing that springs to mind.

Ottawa’s Aqua-Drain Sewer Services placed 144th overall, and eighth on the list of Canada’s 25 Fastest-Growing Consumer Services Firms, with a five-year revenue growth of 401 per cent.

Aqua-Drain Sewer Services has come a long way since Yanick Brulé began with a single van a decade ago.

How? It’s simple. Be where customers need you to be, at any time of day or night, and take advantage of the latest technology to get the job done right and done fast.

“Work hard every day and be honest with staff and customers,” said Brulé. “Everything flows from that. We have always focused on making our emergency customers a priority. When we started out, we got the business because we got there first.”

Brulé began with that single vehicle, making emergency house calls around Ottawa. Today, he has almost 40 employees and 27 trucks equipped with the latest equipment for bigger jobs. His team serves residential, commercial and municipal customers across Ottawa, as well as commercial customers in the Toronto area.

Aqua-Drain Sewer Services has parlayed its success in providing 24/7 emergency services into other areas, such as municipal contracts for fixture replacement, pipe repair and root cutting work. The company uses the latest robotic camera and industry technology to replace and repair sewer systems without having to dig. Messy jobs that once took days can now be done in hours without destroying lawns and driveways.

“We remain the emergency services homeowners and businesses can rely on,” said Brulé. “But we continue to expand our commercial services to carry out infrastructure, pipe-lining and sewer rehabilitation work, too.”
