Repair of leaky upstairs faucet

The tap in the sink in the bathroom of our master bedroom would drip quietly at first so we would just ignore it. Then night after night, it would drip loudly during the middle of the night and disturb our sleep. Yet a good twist of the tap stopped the dripping so again we ignored. Finally, we realized we were losing sleep over this and phoned Cambie Heating and Plumbing. They fit us in at noon two days later and had it fixed in very little time and cleaned everything up. Such a relief to get this type of focused and inexpensive service on such an important piece of plumbing. THANK YOU, Cambie Heating and Plumbing.

Furnace Service and Hot Water Tank service and replacement

Several years ago, Cambie came through with furnace service work and restored heat for an elderly gentleman on two occasions on short notice. I chose Cambie because of their reputation and long service history. The first service job came easy (igniter replacement) and the second (circuit board) was more challenging but again they came through.

More recently, with the hot water tank, Cambie went the extra mile with two service calls to extend the life of an old hot water tank. When the tank finally gave up its ghost, Cambie did a replacement and more.

They detected and sealed a carbon monoxide leak that was caused by incredible shoddy installation of the original tank.

The service didn't stop there.

Cambie waived all billing for the two previous service calls.

You don't see that anymore. That's goes back to a different kind of old school customer service of what I thought was a by gone era.

All that hot water tank work, at that bargain rate, and in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are the people you want on the front line when you need work done promptly, professionally, and a great price.

There's a reason why this company has been in business for nearly 75 years!

Fixed few leaky toilets

There's obviously a lot of plumbers to choose from in the lower mainland and after calling a few, I noticed that a lot of them have pretty filled schedules. I decided to go with Cambie and booked about a week in advanced to have some toilets fixed - they came in exactly on time and got the job done swiftly. Great company and nice people to work with.

Dishwasher Removal and Installation

We have recently purchased an old house and we use Cambie Plumbing and Heating for our plumbing needs. On this occasion we needed to replace an existing dishwasher with a new one that we had purchased. The problem was that the dishwasher drainage and plumbing to the old one was hooked up incorrectly ... very amateur like.... it seemed as if the previous owner just made due and hooked it up with what ever parts they had laying around. Anyways like previous jobs these parts were removed and the water supply and drainage was hooked up correctly. That is why I would recommend this company... they are good at fixing someone else's past mishaps and doing it right.

Efficient, well-done, and honest

The service was done in an efficient but professional manner and I'm very happy with the results -- my toilet is back to normal! The first invoice that they sent actually charged me less than what they should have, because they thought the part was supplied by me. Actually, the part was left here during a previous visit, so I let them know and got the invoice updated. Cambie Plumbing is definitely be my "go to" plumber who I have no hesitation recommending.

40 year old water meter

After being advised by the city that our old water meter needed replacing and that the downstream shut off had to be replaced by a plumber before they proceeded with the work we contacted Cambie Plumbing.

They squeezed us in to a busy pre Xmas schedule. The plumber was prompt and courteous. Instead of proceeding with what could have been an expensive job, he pointed out that a functional downstream valve already existed further upstream. This meant the meter could be replaced without additional plumbing work.

Honesty is hard to find sometimes. However Cambie plumbing was professional and honest.

Tricky installation handled beautifully!

I'd had a flood and was now installing a leak detection system. It's not a very common installation. Cambie Plumbing was one of the few companies that had the expertise. From Sally at reception, to Dominick's installation to follow up with Dan, the process couldn't have been better. They actually give a damn! How rare is that these days!

Leaking Tub

Dominick came to my apartment (the same day I made the call) to attend to a leak coming from an to-be-determined source. He went out of his way, including rearranging his schedule to come back early the next morning to take care of the issue. I would recommend him and this company to anyone.
