We Solve Sewer and Clogged Drain Problems in Calgary

Do you have a clogged drain full of grease, hair or grime? Are your toilets backing up? Let us help you remove any blockage in your residential or commercial drain. Save time, money and frustration by letting a qualified professional locate and resolve the problem that a simple plunger and chemicals can’t. Whether your shower is draining slowly or your commercial kitchen sink is completely backed up, our drain experts have the right equipment to help you, including:


Backflows, Backflow Testing and Backwater Valves

Stop basement flooding problems before they begin by making sure you have a working backwater valve. This check valve goes into your main sewer line and lets the sewage pass out into the sewer if everything is flowing normally. When heavy rain or a burst water main reverses the normal flow, you can get backflow and a flooded basement unless you have a backwater valve that closes to stop it.


Not sure if you have a backwater valve or if the one you have is in good working condition? Call The Drain Doctor™ technicians now and we will help you schedule a service for backflow testing and backwater valve installation.

Plumbing maintenance tips


Clogged drains are incredibly frustrating, and this will be the last thing you would want to encounter on your busy day. These messy happenings can be avoided by maintaining your drainage and sewer systems. Our experts recommend some easy steps to care for your drains to eliminate the risk of clogging in the future.


Here are some of the ways to keep your drains clean and clear:


  • Pour hot water down your kitchen sink and drain at least once a week to prevent oil and grease buildup inside the pipes

  • Don’t pour food waste down the drain

  • Use an enzyme-based drain cleaner once a month to remove organic waste from your drains.

  • Be mindful of what you put down your sink, toilet and other drainage systems


If you can’t manage regular maintenance on your own, call a professional for help. At The Drain Doctor™, we offer preventative maintenance. We believe that periodic inspections and maintenance can go a long way in preventing clogged drains, leaks, and other plumbing emergencies. Our team of skilled experts will work with you to develop a personalized maintenance plan to suit your unique needs. We’ll schedule regular inspections to ensure everything is working efficiently.


Things to avoid flushing down the drain


Most clogged drains can easily be prevented if you know what not to flush down the drain. Here are some things you should never put down your drain:


  • Avoid throwing unused medications down the toilet. They contain certain chemicals that can get into your water supply system.

  • Discarding coffee grounds down your sink can wreak havoc on your plumbing system.

  • Cotton balls and feminine hygiene products don’t dissolve quickly and are designed to absorb. This, in turn, can clog your drain.

  • Avoid disposing of both oil-based and water paints down the drain.

  • Put food debris in the trash. Don’t try to stuff it down your drains.


Finally, don’t pour oil and grease drain down your drains. It can form thick, gunky globes in the pipes, which can cause other materials, such as eggshells, food and paper towels, to clump together, causing an even bigger headache.
