Emergency Plumbing Kanata

John the Plumber’s urgent plumbing service team has just about seen it all. Our licensed and certified technicians are trained for plumbing emergencies and have worked through many stressful situations. These services are offered to residents throughout Kanata and the Ottawa area. These emergency services are not only intended to remedy any urgent problem you may be facing but also to educate you on how you can prevent these emergencies in the future.

Plumbing problems are never planned and often happen at the worst time. Most plumbing issues start out small and it is only when you ignore them or put them off that they grow to become problematic. Our expert technicians from John the Plumber recommend that you call a plumbing company if you ever notice leaks, clogs, noises or if something is not working as it should. Do not put these little problems off!

Urgent plumbing services are often more expensive because they accommodate emergencies during after hours, so if you can stop a small problem at its source before it becomes unmanageable it will save you the hassle of paying an arm and a leg in the future. At John the Plumber we offer our peace of mind program to help keep your plumbing system up to date and functioning well. We know that sometimes you can’t avoid an emergency which is why we have after hour services and are ready to help you when you need us most.

At John the Plumber, we provide fast, friendly, and affordable emergency services to Kanata homeowners and homeowners across the Ottawa area.

The Most Common Plumbing Emergencies

At John The Plumber we have seen many plumbing emergencies and are prepared to help you with all your plumbing needs, no matter the severity of the problem. We understand how stressful these situations can be, our goal is to help fix the problem and make it a little less stressful for you. The most common plumbing emergencies that we see are:

Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can backup fast and make quite the mess, a very expensive mess at that! If a drain clog can’t be easily pulled out, you will probably need a professional drain cleaning. This is because the drainpipes are often inaccessible and snaking the clogged drains through the overflow is often the best solution.

Our drain technicians are some of the best technicians that Kanata and Ottawa have to offer.

We will get your drain flowing again in no time!


There can be many reasons as to why you have a flood in your home. From blocked drains to bursting pipes. If not delt with fast, the damage can be in the thousands! John The Plumber offers emergency plumbing services for this very reason alone. Give us a call when you need us the most!

Hot Water Tank Leaking

These can be detrimental, and you want to get the mess under control quickly! John The Plumber has a large team of technicians who are ready and available to rush to your home for situations just like this.

Outdoor Faucet Leaking

If you don’t isolate and drain your hose bib, then you run the risk of a cold winter ruining your basement. It happens when the garden faucets are exposed to the frigid, cold temperatures. If you haven’t drained the line or shut off the valve then this water will freeze inside the pipe. When water freezes, it expands and can cause the pipe to split open. If you didn’t turn your valve off, then on the first warm day, the blockage of ice will melt, and probably cause a nice flood your basement. Our plumbers are trained to handle these situations and are ready and able to help!

Water Coming Through the Ceiling

There can be many reasons for this. Most homeowners take pride in there home and this sure can be devastating. Our plumbers are trained for this! They are trained to find the problem fast and will not only repair the plumbing problem but will spend the time needed to educate you on the repair and how to prevent it in the future.

Sump Pump Failure

Your sump pump protects your basement and home from flooding. When all is well, we don’t have much reason to think about these devices. But when you need them and they’re not working properly, you’re going to know about it – and it’s going to be expensive. John The Plumber is the sump pump expert near you, and we can help protect your home from heavy rains and snowmelts.

No Hot Water

They say that starting the day with a cold shower is a great way to wake up. This may be true if that’s what you choose but waking up to find that your hot water isn’t hot usually means that your hot water tank or tankless water heater isn’t working. John The Plumber can help. Our licensed plumbers are water heater experts. We understand the necessity of hot water, and we want to help immediately.

Frozen Pipes

Any homeowner that has had to deal with frozen pipes before is aware of the inconvenience of waking up and not being able to flush your toilet or take a shower. But what is really scary is the potential damage that frozen pipes can cause. When your pipes freeze, the water inside the piping will begin to expand, and your copper or pex piping won’t hold up to the pressure. If this bursts you will have a very expensive mess to deal with. At John The Plumber we take pride in our same-day emergency service.

The key to preventing thousands of dollars in damage to your home with any of these problems is to have a plumber fix the problem as soon as possible. At John The Plumber we offer after hours and emergency services for this very reason.

What Our Customers Have to Say

google 5 star plumber reviews

John The Plumber has become my go-to for plumbing jobs of any size in Ottawa. The first plumber assigned to one of my jobs was Billy, who is just amazing. Recently I had a plumbing emergency and called for help – Billy was all booked up, but I figured if he represents the level of service the company strives for, likely the plumber they send will be good – maybe not Billy good, but good. Well, Lance was excellent – re-arranged his schedule to accommodate me because of the emergency nature of the job, called ahead, showed up exactly when promised, worked quickly, courteously and professionally, and our plumbing problem was fixed well in no time. Thanks again guys.

I wasn’t expecting to have to fix my toilet right after moving into my new place. Luckily, John The Plumber was on hand to guide me through the process with their friendly, professional, efficient service.

Thomas was amazing from the get-go. Not only was he quick, he was polite, and managed to deal with whatever challenges my bathroom posed head-on.

I highly recommend using John the Plumber for your emergency and/or renovation needs!

Billy and Shane came on an emergency basis to unclog our toilet. They arrived promptly and called beforehand to let me know their estimated time of arrival. They were very professional in assessing the situation and gave me their quotes, no hidden charges. They have a call out fee of $40 to come and assess the situation and provide a quote, if the work is approved and done, this call out fee is canceled and only the quoted price is paid. I paid $250+tax for the repairs. Very reasonable. Recommended!

Jonathan, Eric and Thomas were absolutely amazing in the service they provided. Called first for an emergency, they came quickly and more than exceeded our expectations. Our home is a mobile home; nothing was standard and they had to be creative, and search out the appropriate fittings. They were professional, straightforward, respectful of our home, personable and did a wonderful job. We would highly recommend them.
