For over 25 years, 1st Rooter Plumbing has been the most trusted plumbing service provider in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and the surrounding areas. We can handle residential, commercial, and emergency plumbing repairs. If you are in need of quick, effective, and reliable plumbing services, we’ve got you covered.
It’s normal for plumbing systems to need repairs every once in a while. Through our years of experience, we have done various kinds of residential and commercial plumbing repairs, maintenance work, and replacements. No matter the plumbing issue, we will use honed techniques along with up-to-date technology and tools to give you plumbing repairs that last.
Our plumbing repair services include:
Pipes and fixtures can wear out, crack, or corrode over time. They can also be damaged due to physical force or become completely obstructed by deposits from hard water. Our plumbing experts will help you identify and solve whatever problems you may have with your pipes or fixtures and present you with effective solutions that will keep the problems from recurring in the future.
Kitec pipes are especially prone to damage. As a matter of fact, the design of Kitec plumbing is so flawed that it’s only a matter of time (around 10 years) before you notice major issues like leaks and pipe bursts. Get in touch with our plumbing experts to confirm if you have Kitec pipes in your property and to find out what options are available for you.
Just like other plumbing fixtures, toilets and faucets can get damaged through time or because of physical impact. If your toilet is constantly running, making weird noises, or is flushing slower than usual, it’s time to assess the problem and stop your running toilet from adding to your water bill.
Basements can flood at any time so it’s always best to be prepared. Sump pumps are essential for keeping basements flood-free. These pumps have an average lifespan of seven years if cared for properly. If you’re starting to notice problems with your old sump pump, you need an expert plumber to troubleshoot the issue and give you options on what next steps to take.
Problems with your sewage pump can lead to flooding and/or a messy sewage back-up in your home. If your sewage pump has been making strange noises or if you smell hints of sewage in your basement or home, you need to call in an expert emergency plumber immediately.
Hot water tanks typically have a lifespan of eight to 12 years. It’s time to call a plumber if your water heater is functioning too slow, making strange noises, or has stopped functioning altogether in order to fix the unit or replace it. It’s especially important to do this promptly because during the winter frozen pipes are far more likely to occur if the water heater isn’t performing as it should.
Whether you are building a new home, remodelling your existing home, or just looking to replace certain pipes, fixtures, or pumps, our plumbing experts can help you get the job done in a quick and polished way.
It would be best to call in an expert plumber the moment that you notice even minor issues with your plumbing. Even a small pinhole-sized crack can cost you $600 or more a month on top of your water bill. Furthermore, seemingly small issues can escalate into complications that could damage your property, resulting in costly repairs. By being proactive you can save yourself from further costs and hassles.
Here are the main signs that you need a plumber:
In addition to plumbing repair services, these are some areas we specialize in:
We can address problems like frozen or burst pipes inside or outside your home by turning off the water flow, slowly thawing a frozen pipe, and replacing the broken section with a new pipe. Furthermore, we can insulate your pipes and lessen the chances of them freezing again.

Licensed professional plumbers have the skills and knowledge for repairing, replacing, maintaining, and installing pipes that supply water to a home and carry waste water away. Plumbers also do the same kind of tasks for plumbing-related fixtures and appliances such as sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilets, dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, sump pumps, and sewage pumps.
Most licensed plumbers in Canada charge anywhere from $104 to $170 per hour (via Homestars) for their services. On top of this, there may be added costs depending on what materials are needed for the project.
The most common plumbing problems encountered by property owners include clogged drains, leaking pipes and faucets, water heater problems, and running toilets.
This depends on the quality and make of your plumbing system. For instance, Kitec pipes are known for their short lifespans which is why homeowners that have this kind of plumbing are encouraged to replace it as soon as possible. Meanwhile, copper pipes can last up to 80 years, brass and steel pipes can last up to 100 years, and plastic PVC pipes can last up to 40 years. If you are unsure if your pipes need replacing, an expert plumber will be able to assess this for you.
