With a steady decline in working plumbers in Ottawa, and across the country, many young people should be asking themselves a question: should I become a plumber? Plumbing isn’t for everyone, and few children dream of growing up to be a plumber. It can be difficult, heavy, exhausting, dirty, gross, repetitive, and upsetting at times. But, all jobs have cons. So… What are the benefits of becoming a plumber?

fantastic – gave us the best advice for how to proceed on our four projects for the best value and worked quickly and efficiently to get the jobs done. He is friendly and no-nonsense and in no way tried to upsell us for unnecessary work (quite the opposite, in fact!) Highly recommended!
David was our plumber. He did an amazing job, gave me more then a fair price, and came within an hour of me calling john the plumbers phone number. David described what needed to be done and how much it would cost in advance. Which was amazing! Best service that I could’ve asked for. Thank you so much David!!

Drain and Sewer Cleaning Services
When water is draining slowly, or you’re having issues with flushing, this is usually a sign that you should clean your drains.
The matter that goes down the drains, such as grease, food particles, oils, soap, coffee grinds, hair, and other debris, can stick to your pipes. As time goes by, these buildups become worse until they regularly cause you trouble.
Call John The Plumber today and book an appointment with Ottawa’s drain cleaning specialists!
Excellent work. They were able to get here shortly after I called them to work on our plugged drain in our older home. David was our plumber and he provided great advice, completed the necessary work quickly and did an excellent job. We were very pleased to have him in our house, he wore a mask and was very polite.
David and Shane showed up and got right to work clearing my floor drain. They were professional and very knowledgable tradesmen. It was a pleasure having them solve my issue and I would highly recommend John the Plumber for all your plumbing needs. Great job guys ! Thank you!
Toilet and Drain Clog Removal

When you need help with your drains, you can count on John The Plumber.
Our experts have been removing clogs from Ottawa homes since 2006. We’re Ottawa’s fast and reliable drain clog professionals!
I called the company to get some help with a clogged sink and their service was impeccable. A plumber came to help me on the same day that I called, very clean and fast service. The plumber was very friendly and from my perspective after seeing him fix my sink, he seemed very knowledgeable. If I have any other plumbing issues, I will definitely call this company for help again!
David was absolutely amazing in helping out with my toilet blockage. Not only did he figure out that, he figured out the bathtub drainage i had too! Super friendly service, and super professional. Would recommend these guys.

Replacing a faucet in your kitchen or bathroom is a great way to update your kitchen’s look, but the installation process doesn’t always go as smoothly as you’d hope.
If you want to save time, frustration, and your weekend, then call John The Plumber for your fixture services.
I called John The Plumber based on online reviews and was able to get an appointment 2 days later. David showed up on time and was able to figure out the issue quickly. I needed a new kitchen faucet and instead of trying to up sell me as many do, I went and purchased the new faucet myself on his recommendation (type and model to buy). He installed it quickly and efficiently. David was also wonderful to talk to. He is a kind and respectful person. I will definitely use them again.
Would recommend. Brent showed up on time, explained why the toilet was leaking, fixed it quickly, and guaranteed his work for two years. All at a fair price.
I called John the Plumber for urgent service due to a water leak. Michelle was kind enough to arrange for the plumber to come the same day. Eric arrived within 2 hours of my call. Eric followed Covid19 protocols and was a pleasure to have in our home. He fixed the issue and even followed up with a phone call to give me information about a manufacturer’s warranty for the kitchen faucet. I was so impressed with Eric that I will gladly recommend him and this company to anyone in need of plumbing services. Thank you for your excellence and professionalism. I am more than impressed! Thank you to Shane as well who attended the service call. You both deserve enormous credit for giving us peace of mind, especially during a pandemic and the New Year’s holiday.
Water Heater Maintenance and Repair
Water heaters can last anywhere from 8-25 years when properly maintained.
Good maintenance includes flushing and repairs as needed. It doesn’t take much!

When your kitchen’s plumbing needs a little TLC, call John The Plumber!

Eric installed a kitchen tap for me. He was very professional and kind. He wore covid protection (mask) while in my home, he left his boots properly at the front door and he verified that I was happy with his completed work. I would have this service professional back if I had a plumbing issue again. I recommend Eric and this company!
I called late in the evening to help with a blocked kitchen sink and Eric was here promptly the next morning and quickly resolved the issue. He called to give me warning that he was on his way, was on time, and followed COVID protocol. He was polite and quick, cleaned up neatly, and sink is working great! He also gave some advice on my kitchen plumbing set up and how to avoid future clogs.

I used these guys to change the shower controls and diverter in my bathroom and they did a great job. The price was fair and everything was above board. The receptionist was easy to talk to and informative, the consultant helped me to figure out what I needed given that I had no idea what I was doing, and the guys that did the actual work were quick, clean, and polite. I definitely recommend them and will be using them again for any future plumbing work I need done.
Eric called before his arrival to double check the work that had to be done. He arrived promptly 20 minutes later. He removed his shoes as soon as he came in. Eric wore a mask and practised the protocol of social distancing which was very important to me. He was friendly and thorough and explained what needed to be done. Within an hour the bathroom sink was unclogged and he tested it a few times showing me that everything was back to normal. He cleaned his working area before leaving. Very satisfied with Eric’s professional work. The service was somewhat expensive but I probably use this company again
Sump Pump Services
Sump pumps are often the only thing keeping your basement from becoming an indoor pool. Your sump pump should last about ten years, but it might need servicing along the way.
At John The Plumber, we advise you to test your sump pump before Spring and heavy rainstorms. Plumbers and servicemen are often busy during these times with service calls due to a failed sump pump system.
If you’re experiencing issues with your sump pump or you want a new sump pump installed, call John The Plumber.
We’re your local sump pump experts!
David from John the Plumber came to enlarge my sump pit and install 2 larger pumps. The price was very reasonable and the work performed was very well done. All connections were perfectly measured, the new pit perfectly leveled with the cement floor, and job site left very clean. Great communication with the company and David to ensure that I knew exactly what would be done before the work was started. Very friendly staff. I would definitely do business with again.
I am very satisfied with the installation of a sump pump by Jonathan. He was both professional and knowledgeable. Jonathan explained the benefits of a battery back-up and made sure I understood the details of the work before proceeding. I appreciate his efficient and courteous customer service. I will certainly look to John the Plumber again for future plumbing needs.
Plumbing Inspections and Protective Plumbing
Many plumbing issues provide clues before they become emergencies. A professional inspection can help you avoid these emergencies, which ultimately saves you money. These inspections are available when you suspect something may be wrong, annually or before you purchase or sell your home.
During an inspection, our experts will test and inspect every fixture, waterline, drain, and appliance to ensure that your plumbing system is in tiptop shape and free of any leaks, damage, or signs of issues to come.
In addition to finding issues, we also offer plumbing services to help protect against problems with your plumbing system.
I’ve had the pleasure to deal with Jonathan on multiple occasions. Most recently during a pre-purchase plumbing inspection. He’s very knowledgeable, has great work ethics and I never hesitate to refer him and John The Plumber to anyone.
Pipe Installation and Repair
Modern water supply lines and drain pipes are designed to last a long time. But over the course of their life, both types of pipes must deal with varying temperatures, pressures, use, and sometimes damage.
It’s not uncommon to need a plumber to repair or replace either kind of pipe.
John The Plumber can help when you need a licensed plumber to assist with your pipe systems.
We are trained to install, repair, replace, and relocate all pipe types, making us your one-stop-shop for all plumbing services.

I had John the plumber at my house to install several vanities and a basement bathroom (3 pieces). Two plumbers came to do the work and part of the job involved breaking concrete to adjust drain locations from the builder rough in. I cant say enough about the work! Im very happy with it and will definitively recommend John the Plumber. The plumbers are very professional and the cost was very reasonable. Thank you John the Plumber!
John the Plumber repaired our entire sewer line. We sought a number of quotes and we chose this company because they quoted a reasonable price and they were really easy to communicate with. They were very helpful and professional with the many steps that were involved in preparing to do this work. The staff members we worked with were very professional and prompt. Overall we were very happy to have such a big job done without extra headaches. I highly recommend working with this company.
Some plumbing issues cannot wait. Unfortunately, there aren’t many plumbers in Ottawa. As such, some plumbers have wait periods of two weeks or more.
At John The Plumber, we know what it’s like to experience an emergency.
We do everything in our power to provide you with plumbing services fast, even during evenings and weekends.
John the plumber saved my bacon when the pipes froze. They were very quick in responding to my call and helped us in our emergency. I would definitely recommend them to everyone who needs plumbing services!!!
