Residential Plumbing in
Greely & Manotick
Greely is a small rural community where residents enjoy its convenient location near the capital and all it has to offer without sacrificing a quiet countryside lifestyle.
A few minutes drive away sits Manotick, just on the edge of the Rideau River. It’s a beautiful art enthusiast’s paradise with entertainment options ranging from boutique shops to topnotch restaurants for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Out of this World Plumbing has been proud to serve these and other Ottawa area communities with expert customer care for years. These communities feature older homes near the water (anywhere from 25 to 60 years old), so much of our work focuses on regular maintenance and in-home flood prevention.
Plumbing Pro Tip for Greely & Manotick Homeowners
Sump pumps work hard to keep water from flooding your basement, but if the power goes out, or the pump fails – they aren’t any help. Adding a battery operated emergency pump will give you the piece of mind that your home is protected against a potential plumbing emergency.
Home age: 0 – 50
If you ever see us out in a newer Greely development, we are likely there for a free quality water test and consultation – for the installation of a new water treatment system. Homes that are supplied by a private well in Greely will have hard water. Most will require a water softener, and in some cases an iron or sulfur filter as well.
Most homes between: 25- 60
After 25 years, leaks are inevitable as pipes and valves begin to age. This is the most common plumbing issue we fix in this area.
Half of the homes in Manotick have their water supplied by a private well – and so they will require a water softener, as all of the well water there is considered moderately hard. Iron and sulfur are also found in some pockets. Most homes in Manotick will already have some type of water treatment system, but after 10-20 years they may require replacement.
Most homes in both Greely & Manotick will require a sump pump to protect against flooding. These systems last on average about 10 years, and should be monitored and tested regularly – especially during the Spring when the snow melts. We also recommend you periodically check to make sure that your discharge line is clear of any blockages. It may also be worth considering a battery backup sump pump in the event the primary pump fails, or there is a power outage.

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.
