If you're a resident of a beautiful neighbourhood on Vancouver's West Side, between the Burrard Street Bridge and Fraser River Park, you know it's one of the very best places to live in British Columbia. From outdoor activities like hanging out at Kitsilano Beach or skating at the ice rink to the annual Celebration of Light firework show against a mountain view backdrop, there's so many entertainment choices to enjoy.

But when you get back indoors at home, whether it's a high-rise apartment complex or a historic single-family house, your relaxation and fun can be cut short by a plumbing disaster. Our plumbing systems are modern marvels that we rely on to keep our homes sanitary, comfortable, and heated, but we tend to take them for granted and neglect preventative maintenance—until they malfunction and we're left dealing with a major headache. The problem is that most homeowners simply don't have the tools and expertise needed to deal with everything that's coming down the pipe.

Fortunately you can get those disasters taken care of quickly and efficiently—or avoid them in the first place—with help from the dedicated plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Vancouver. From minor repairs and preventative maintenance tasks to coping with a major problem like a sewer system backup, we have the skill and hands-on experience to repair, replace, and maintain your entire system, from water lines to sewer lines and all the fixtures in between.

Our knowledgeable plumbers are committed to providing a safe, worry-free experience by always treating you and your property with respect. We'll arrive on time for your scheduled appointment, in uniform and driving a marked van so you know who you're letting into your home. We'll thoroughly investigate the problem and explain our recommendations clearly so you have the expert advice you need to make an informed decision about the care of your plumbing system, and we can ensure that we exceed your expectations for quality of service.

Sewer System Backups

Smelly, unsanitary, and just plain disgusting... there are few things worse for your home than a sewer system backup. When we think of this particular plumbing disaster, many people imagine a nightmare scenario in which your floor is flooded by raw sewage, but that's actually the worst-case scenario. There are many more subtle warning signs before it gets to that point, and if you know what they are, you can call Mr. Rooter and avoid turning your house into the most horrible swimming pool ever. Here are some telltale signs to watch for:

  • Slow drains that take forever to get standing water out of your fixtures
  • Nasty odours coming from drains; or noticeable smells in the basement or outside
  • Strange noises from drains, such as gurgling, bubbling, grinding, or squealing
  • Frequently overflowing toilet, or no water in the toilet bowl after flushing
  • Pooling water on your lawn, or sudden lush spots in the grass

If you notice any of these issues in your home or commercial business, it's important to get help from a professional plumber right away. It may be a problem that can be repaired with drain cleaning services, but if your sewer lines are degraded, cracked, or broken, you'll need to have them replaced so you can get your wastewater flowing freely into the city sewer line where it belongs.

West Side Water Heater Repair & Replacement

Have you ever stepped into the shower, ready to relax under a torrent of hot water—only to have it turn ice-cold halfway through? A steady supply of heated water is a necessity, so it can be extremely frustrating to experience problems with your hot water tank. But how do you know if the water heater needs repairs or replacement? If you notice any of the following issues, it's time to call in a professional plumber:

  • Not holding as much hot water as it used to
  • Gurgling, dripping, or sucking noises coming from inside the tank
  • Takes longer to heat water
  • Tank has a water leak or has condensation on the outside

Water heaters have an expected lifespan of around 11 to 20 years, depending on how they're maintained, so if your heater is a couple of decades old and you're having trouble, it's definitely time for a replacement.

Plumbing disasters never seem to happen during business hours. Instead, they lie in wait and strike at the worst possible moment, during the night or in the middle of a long weekend.
