Residential Plumbing in
Carleton Place and Beckwith
Carleton Place and Beckwith are historically and culturally-rich towns in the Ottawa Valley that offer the slow-paced country life feel while being conveniently located near the city. Because many homes in Carleton Place and Beckwith are on the waterfront, flooding is a big concern. What’s more, many homes in the Beckwith area draw water from wells, so water quality is a big concern for this neighbourhood.
You can count on us! Out of This World has been serving the Ottawa area since 2004, so we know the houses and we have the expertise to meet all your plumbing needs—from water quality management to sump pump installation, our team has your back.
Plumbing Pro Tip for Carleton Place & Beckwith Homeowners
All homes in Beckwith, and over half of the homes in Carleton Place will require a sump pump to protect against flooding. These systems last an average of about 10 years and should be monitored and tested regularly. Especially during the spring when the snow melts. We also recommend that you periodically check to ensure your discharge line is clear of any blockages. It may be worth considering a battery backup sump pump in the event the primary pump fails, or in case there’s ever a power outage.
Carleton Place is ever growing, and new housing developments are continuing to be built as the town becomes an increasingly popular place to live. With a combination of old homes and new properties, we are called out to the town for a wide variety of plumbing requests.
In the newer neighbourhoods, we are frequently upgrading fixtures from the builder choices to more stylish models that better suit the homeowners preferences.
In older neighbourhoods, we are most often called to clear a blocked drain. Over long periods of time, things like grease, soap scum, toothpaste, and hair accumulate in the pipes—making them prone to blockages. Homes that have mature trees in the front yard are also at risk for a mainline blockage if the roots have made their way into the main drainage line. If you think your home could be at risk of tree root invasion, we recommend having a camera inspection performed to identify potential issues before they turn into a plumbing disaster.
Because most homes in Beckwith get their water from wells, we find the most common plumbing issues are water-quality related. This area is known to have hard water—and in most cases, iron is also present . Neither of these are harmful to our health, but they need to be treated in order to protect your plumbing system.

Signs of a Water Leak
Stay alert to the following signs that tend to indicate a water leak somewhere in your house. If you notice any of them, turn off the water valve and contact us for help.
- Unexplained spike in your water bill. When your water bill suddenly shoots up 10-20% for no apparent reason, that’s a clue you probably have a hidden water leak.
- Bubbling, discoloured, or peeling paint. Excess moisture from a hidden leak often affects the appearance or texture of paint on your walls or ceiling.
- Mysterious warm spots. Run your hands along the walls. If you feel any strange warm spots, you most likely have a big, noticable leak on your hands.
- Sound of dripping or trickling water. If you hear what sounds like running water coming from behind your wall – when no one is using your faucets, shower, or toilet — believe your ears and contact us for a leak inspection ASAP.
- Mould or mildew. When mould or mildew shows up on your walls, that’s a clear sign of excess damp – frequently caused by a plumbing leak. Even before it’s visible to the eye, mould growth may become obvious in the form of a musty, acrid smell.
- Wet floor or drywall. Wet or mouldy flooring, carpet, or drywall is a definite warning signal that water is flowing from somewhere.
- Water meter reading. Now, not all water meters can be read, so first check if your water meter has a legible dial. Avoid using any water in your house for the next 2 hours; then check the meter once again. A change in the reading will confirm that you do, indeed, have a leak.
