Frequently Asked Questions

A few telltale signs that your residential home or property might be experiencing sewer line problems could include:


  • Rotten egg or sulphur odours
  • Slow drains
  • Gurgling noises
  • Pooling water in your yard


If you’re currently experiencing any of these issues, contact the sewer experts at Aqua Drain Plumbing. We will be able to diagnose if the issue is sewer related or if you have other plumbing issues that need to be addressed. Our team of Ottawa plumbers can provide recommendations and plumbing resolutions ASAP so you can get back to your normal routine.

Many homeowners might not know they should be getting their sewer line inspected and cleaned every 2-5 years. This time frame can vary depending on the property or how old your sewer lines are. The team at Aqua Drain can provide regular maintenance so you can avoid costly repairs down the line. Contact our team for sewer inspections and cleaning to identify major blockages or damage before they get worse.

There are a number of things that can cause sewer line blockages. Some of which include:

  • Food particles or hair buildup
  • Tree root intrusion
  • Flushing inappropriate items (paper towels, single-use wipes, grease, etc)
  • Accumulation of debris over time
  • Heavy rainfall

To prevent sewer line problems and blockages, it’s important to treat your sewer system well. To keep your sewer lines in excellent condition, avoid flushing non-biodegradable items, schedule regular inspections, avoid planting trees near sewer lines, and use plumber-approved drain cleaners periodically. Want more tips? Contact the team at Aqua Drain, we’d be happy to provide you with any information you need and answer all your questions.

Sometimes when Ottawa residents go a little too long without sewer line inspections, blockages or damages can occur that need repairs. When these situations arise, excavation, pipe replacements, trench-less pipe lining, or bursting can all help repair the damaged sewer line. Not sure which method is the best option for your situation? Contact the Ottawa plumbers at Aqua Drain today.

We recommend avoiding DIY sewer line repairs for any Ottawa resident. Sewer line repairs can be extremely complicated and cause significant damage to the property if not done properly by trained experts. Although DIY solutions might seem appealing to cut costs short term,  it can cause more damage and cost more in the long run. It’s highly recommended to hire a licensed plumbing company like Aqua Drain to handle all sewer line repairs and sewer line services. Contact our team today if you need help!
