There’s no doubt about it — when you have a clogged drain in your home, it is a daily annoyance. But what’s more than just having to deal with a backed up sink or tub as it slowly drains, is that it could be an early sign of a larger problem.

It can be tempting to take the DIY route and fix a simple drain clog by yourself, but at Ace Plumbing, we say “D-I-Why risk it?”. Here’s why we think you should call the experts when it comes to clogged drains in your Calgary home.

What Can A Clogged Drain Really Mean?

A slow draining sink, bathtub, or shower is an indicator that you may have an obstruction in your pipes. It can also indicate that you have an older, worn down plumbing system. If left unattended, a clogged drain can lead to much larger damage to your home’s plumbing. And though a clogged drain itself is incredibly annoying, putting a band-aid fix on it could mean spending more time and money on your plumbing down the road — which we think you’ll agree is much more annoying.


Taking the DIY approach when it comes to plumbing is often just a temporary fix. It also comes with plenty of risks. Not using the right tools, for example, can cause damage to your fittings and potentially get something else stuck in your pipes. Forgetting to properly turn off the water before getting started could also result in extensive water damage.

Commercial drain cleaners are also an ineffective solution for many reasons:

  • They rarely dissolve the whole obstruction (if at all)

  • They are corrosive to your plumbing — not just the clog

  • They contain chemicals that are harmful to your health and the environment

Call The Pros At Ace

When you need a drain expert here in Calgary, Ace Plumbing has got you covered. With a professional drain cleaning, we’ll make sure your drain is 100% unclogged and that there are no additional underlying plumbing issues that could break the bank.

Our Process

One of our plumbing specialists will use a drain scope camera to see what is in your drain. Then, they will remove the clog using a solution that is tailored to what is causing the obstruction. If tree roots have penetrated the drain line, for example, they will use drain line augering, also known as rootering, to clear your drain lines. If soap residue or other particles have built up in the drain pipes, they will flush your plumbing system with a safe and effective cleaning solution.
