Plumbing Home Inspection for Homeowners in Vancouver

Every property manager should have a great drainage contractor on speed dial to call upon when they need help with the inspection, maintenance, repair or replacement of a building’s underground services. Same goes for homeowners, whether you are looking for regular plumbing inspections on your Vancouver home, or simply want regular maintenance. Inspections are especially important if you are thinking of buying or selling a home. Issues with a property’s sewer lines, water lines or drainage can be traumatic for a tenant, stressful for a homeowner and a lot of work for a property manager. Budget Drainage provides reliable, local, trustworthy, experienced and professional inspection services to property managers and homeowners in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, East Vancouver and the West Side.

Serving customers since 1994, the staff at Budget Drainage can help you with everything from routine maintenance and minor repairs to major projects such as water line and sewer line repair and replacement, perimeter drainage repairs, foundation repairs and video camera inspections.

Before you buy or sell a home, you should have a plumbing inspection done to ensure everything is in good working order and, as a homeowner, you’re not going to have to cover expenses down the road when something goes wrong. If there’s a minor issue, it’s better to deal with it before it becomes a major headache. Plus, it’s good to know what’s happening in your pipes so you can plan for eventualities, whether you’re going to have to deal with root infiltration or need to repair or replace your drainage in two or ten years.

If you do need to do work, our trenchless technology minimizes disruption to your tenants. With the help of a sewer camera, we can figure out what’s actually happening below without having to dig up your beautiful lawn or garden space. Once we know what needs to be done, we can access and replace your pipe by digging two holes - one at the start of the pipe and one at the end. It’s quick, easy, and unobtrusive.

Preventative Plumbing Inspections for the Vancouver Area

Don’t wait until issues arise to have an in-depth plumbing inspection done. If you ignore the problems or aren’t even aware of them, you will end up having to get more work done and it will probably cost a lot more money. For a lot of people, your pipes are out of sight, out of mind. Having regular inspections ensures you know exactly what is happening with your home’s plumbing system and what needs to be done, both as a member of the household on a daily basis and for future plumbing maintenance schedules.


When you call a plumber for a home inspection, here are a few of the things you can expect them to check on: 

  • Fixtures - ensuring all fixtures work, check how toilets flush, the water pressure on your showers and tubs, as well as the hot and cold water. 
  • Hot water heater - probably the most important to check as repair costs can be lower if issues are caught early.
  • Supply lines and drains - could be visual or with a camera. The plumber will check for signs of corrosion or leaks, especially if you have lead or galvanized pipes.
  • Drains & sewers - ensuring there are no blockages or damage. Can also be done visually or with a camera.
  • Appliances - ensuring there won’t be any issues that could cause flooding or water damage to your home.
  • Backwater valve & sump pump - ensure everything is in working order, that there are no blockages or damage, in order to avoid the risk of flooding and water damage. 
  • Water pressure test - make sure it isn’t too low or too high, which could mean there are leaks or there’s an issue with the pressure regulator.
