Sewer Repair and Snaking
Inside and Outside Sewer Repair Ottawa
For 90% of all blocked drains in Ottawa, a simple sewer snaking will repair the problem you have by either pushing the blockage out to the bigger pipes, then washing it away. Sometimes the snake will attach to the blockage if its hair and then you can pull it out. I’ve titled this page sewer snaking and repair, because the two almost go hand in hand.
For the 10% of cases where a sewer snaking doesn’t do the trick, you’ll find yourself in need of a sewer repair. Sewer repairs for the homeowner start in the basement of your home. All of the plumbing drains in your home end up running through your basement floor, then travel passed your cleanout (usually located below your water meter), then under your front lawn, and out to the city sewer.
My goal is to keep this simple, so I’ve broken down sewer repairs into two different categories. Remember, these sewer repairs are only for repairing what the snake won’t fix.
