If you live or do business in South Cambie, then you already know that your life involves one of Vancouver's smallest neighbourhoods. It's difficult for smaller communities to stand out in a big metropolis, and it might sometimes feel as though you've been forgotten by the city's larger businesses and organizations. When it comes to your plumbing, you should know that's not the case.

Residential Plumbers in South Cambie

Other than newer medical facilities like the BC Children's Hospital, many of the buildings in South Cambie are over forty or fifty years old. Some are even older. An older home may bring prestige and distinction, but it also brings plenty of plumbing issues.

Pipes and plumbing fixtures last for a limited amount of time. If you live in an older property that hasn't received recent plumbing services, you might be on the brink of a serious situation. Even if you have seen a local plumber in the last couple of years, getting routine maintenance from a licensed expert is an important part of owning any kind of residential property and protecting yourself from future issues.

Drain Cleaning in South Cambie

Clean drains are an important part of avoiding clogs across the entire city. If you live in an older South Cambie property that has aging pipes, you might already be overdue for drain cleaning from a professional plumber. Over time, minerals, soap scum, and other materials build up inside drainage lines and restrict proper flow. The most minor effect will be reduced efficiency, but buildup can also create major problems like mainline sewer clogs and sewage backups.


  • Slow draining
  • Standing water
  • Strange noises
  • Flies & insects
  • Unpleasant odours

It's a common misconception that pipes are supposed to gurgle. If you notice anything odd with your drainage or sewage disposal systems, from insignificant issues to major malfunctions, you should consider getting drain cleaning services from a local plumber.


Our drain cleaning services are comprehensive and effective. Every plumber on our team follows correct industry procedures and has access to advanced plumbing technology for treating your drains. Whether you have a clog that needs to be cleared, or you just need annual service to maintain your pipe systems, a professional plumber will typically use one—or all—of these key tools.

  • Video Camera Inspection: Using a specially designed camera, we take a look at your pipe system to get a clear, complete image of its health. This process helps us spot any potential problems down the line.
  • HydroScrub® Jetting: High-pressure water treatments like this allow us to remove years of buildup with a blast of pressurized water. It clears away sludge and even tree roots, leaving your plumbing perfectly pristine at its peak efficiency.
  • Augers: Also known as drain snakes, this equipment is used by plumbers to clear stubborn clogs by feeding a line down the pipe and twisting it into obstructions. These tools grab blockage and pull it out of the way. There are options for homeowners, but the equipment we use is all created with industrial settings for optimal accuracy and power.

Water Heater Repairs & Replacements

Anything you use every day is going to need repairs eventually. This is exactly the case for residential water heaters. Most only last between 10 and 20 years, and that's with routine inspections and maintenance. If your home in the narrow strip of South Cambie has an older heater, there's a higher chance it could fail just when you need it most.


  • Failing to supply enough hot water
  • Heating that takes too long

  • Leaking water heater tanks
  • Noise coming from your water tank


Sometimes repairs aren't enough to keep hot water distribution systems alive, but it's hard to know whether that's the case. Our skilled plumbers help you consider all the important factors, like the age of your system and the cost of replacement. If replacement is the best option for you, we can handle installation and replacement for everything from conventional solutions to tankless water heaters.

Plumbing doesn’t last forever, and some issues lay hidden until a sudden, serious situation develops.
