In 2003 I purchased an old, rundown rooter company.  I worked with the previous owner for a couple months before realizing that I didn't like the way that most people in this industry treated there customers.  I decided at that time to do things different.   I charge by the job instead of by the hour.  I give estimates over the phone and I offer senior discounts. Integrity, honesty and dedication I take pride in my work. 

For your convenience, I offer 24-hour emergency service and for your protection I am licensed bonded and insured.

My in-laws were coming for the weekend just as my guest suite bathroom had a flood. AAA Affordable Drain saved not only the weekend, but also my marriage.

Service with a smile

Since starting the business I have been dedicated to not only serving my customer needs with great value but with a smile.  I grew up in a christian home in southern Alberta and we were taught to be polite and respect everyone.  

About the owner.

Here is a couple interesting facts about Paul Shipley.  Im 3rd youngest of 9 kids.  I grewup on a farm with all the animals.  My parents were both entrepreneurs and I started my first business when I was only 13yrs old (a candy business) From there I became a professional dancer traveling all over Canada and united states.  The irony is,  the type of dancing that I did was modern Clogging.  So that joke is, that I have spent the first half of my life clogging and the second half unclogging. 

Now I spend my time with my customers and my young Family (wife and 3 kids).  I also raise French bulldogs and have puppies from time to time.
