Drain Pipe Inspection

Blocked Underground Drain Pipe Inspection in North Vancouver & West Vancouver

Purchasing a house is a huge investment. You want to know that all aspects of your new house are working well, ready for you to move into it. That’s why getting a plumbing inspection before buying your house is essential. Budget Drainage offers underground pipe inspection for Vancouver’s homes. The advantage of asking for a professional opinion about your plumbing situation is that there may be problems that even the current owners haven’t noticed. An inspection can reveal these problems. Even if you feel complete confidence, this course of action is strongly recommended.
If you are looking for an underground pipe inspection as part of an entire house inspection, please visit our home inspection page for additional information and details


Possible Underground Pipe Problems

There are many sewage issues that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Many factors can result in problems with your sewer system, such as:

  • Tree roots work their way into sewer lines, looking for water – this is especially true for older homes. For more information, please visit our tree root infiltration page.
  • With newer homes, the backfill around the house has not had a chance to settle, which can change the layout of your sewer system over time – a drop in the piping can create a blockage
  • A “belly” – a part of the pipe where the slope has been compromised, creating an area for liquid and other materials to build up and create a blockage


Whether a house is old or new, it’s important to look beneath the surface at the inner workings of your new home. Save yourself money in the future by investing in a sewer camera inspection!

What is Involved in a  Camera Inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is a great option for your home. A special type of camera is inserted into your pipe, where it can view the inside in detail. One of the best advantages of a sewer camera inspection is that there is no need to cut into drywall to access the pipe, nor does the pipe need to be dismantled in order to complete the inspection. A great deal of information can be gathered from this inspection without invading your space and time too heavily.

What Comes after the inspection?

Ensuring that your plumbing system is in good working order doesn’t end with a pipe inspection! There are several other aspects that require a detailed going over. Here are some tips for checking your water meter and valves:

  • Close all your faucets, then have a look to see if the water meter is turning – if yes, there is a leak!
  • Shut off the main valve, then check each faucet in the house to see if water comes out – it shouldn’t!

Next, be sure to inspect your water heater for corrosion. 

By taking all these precautions, you can be assured of the quality of your new home before you make a purchase. Budget Drainage can help you at every step of the way by providing tried-and-true services with great customer interactions – all at a price you can afford!
