Everyone relies on plumbing and you will at some point need a licensed plumber. It is one of those things we all take for granted. Plumbing has become an essential part of our life style.

At Francis Plumbing & Heating we pride ourselves by staying on top of the latest advancements in the plumbing industry. The Ontario building and plumbing codes are constantly being revised and updated to better serve and protect the public but the public doesn’t know about these changes without the help of a licensed plumber.

In addition inadequacies in municipal or private plumbing systems in Ottawa can result in serious problems and even wide spread illness…

Our Plumbers

Ottawa’s most trusted Master plumber run business since 1933 Francis Plumbing and Heating has been providing plumbing services for 89 years now. We know what residential plumbing services exist in the older parts of Ottawa and Rockcliffe Park but we are also experienced with the latest in plumbing improvements serving Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Manotick, Orleans and the surrounding Ottawa area.

When it comes to licensed plumbers – Francis Plumbing is the first name in Ottawa!

Plumbing Services performed by licensed and insured plumbers:


These aren’t just pipes in your home. These are the pipes that bring clean sanitary fresh drinking water into your homes and these are the pipes that safely remove the sewage from your homes and businesses in Ottawa.

Improperly installed drainage systems can result in buildings filling with sewer gases, sewage backup in your basement, constant blockages in your drains and worse. Plumbing put in by someone without proper knowledge of current building codes (handymen who are not plumbers) can cause a lot of damage down the road that can end up costing you thousands in repairs and loss.

Plumbing Done To Code Every Time

Our skilled professional licensed plumbers will never breech a plumbing code to cut a corner. We recognize the need to do it right the first time. It protects you and us. Everyone wins when the licensed plumber brings the plumbing to code with everything operating as designed.

Francis Plumbing knows that a well installed or repaired plumbing system by a licensed plumber can perform well for generations to come, not just a quick repair that fails as soon as the handyman leaves. Our licensed plumbers give you peace of mind – knowing the work is done right the first time every time!

Plumbing Leaks

One more thing to keep in mind – more homes are damaged by water than by fire. Leaks can cause immeasurable damage to your home costing you tens of thousands and some of those damages may not be covered by your homeowner insurance policy if the work was not performed by a licensed plumber!

We take protecting your home seriously while assuring that you will have the best plumbers and most efficient plumbing system possible (saving you money), proper installations (to assure your health is protected) and the best technology possible within your budget.

We take our job seriously so you don’t have to worry every time you turn on a faucet or flush.

Plumbing Prices

Next time you consider selecting a contractor or handyman for your plumbing needs remember that it’s not all about price. If you get an unlicensed plumber handyman to do a job that leaks down the road the price to repair the damages and re-do the work properly the second time around is much more expensive than doing it right the first time.

One other note – your home owner insurance policy may not cover the damages if the work wasn’t done by a licensed and insured tradesman and you may be financially liable if a handyman is hurt on the job working in your home (meaning you are financially responsible for not only the medical bills but also lost wages, rehabilitation, and re-educating if he cannot return to the same trade. You may also be on the hook for all past due WSIB premiums if they aren’t paid or they don’t have coverage). Some liabilities simply aren’t worth the risk.

Plumbing Services are about your health & home

Professional plumbing services are about your health, your home, your family and the safety of the water you drink. In the end you will save more money in the long run by hiring the best plumber to start with and Francis Plumbing & Heating has been the most trusted Master Plumber run plumbing and heating company in Ottawa since 1933.
