Our clients required a 400-foot long Water Service installed from the meter at the street and into their home along with final connections. Careful excavation was performed so as not to disturb tree roots and established yard vegetation, followed by a Slinger truck service to spread sand cover for both Under and Over The Water Service. Final backfill completed.
Vortech provides dozens of water and sewer and storm main installations as well repairs annually.
If you have received a high water usage bill from your municipality this typically indicates you have a ruptured water main as well referred to as a burst pipe. Water may not surface in your yard or around your home making this repair difficult to locate often resulting in a new water service installation. A journeyman plumber will work along side our operators to assure the job is completed correctly. We pride ourselves in offering a high level of detail with all applications often removing lawn/sod by hand and replacing on completion. You may not know on completion this service had even been provided..yes were that tidy!.
Sewer mains from a home to a municipal connection or septic system may require repair or replacement due to compressed piping as can happen over time, root intrusion, or faulty fittings. Using our pipe camera/transmitter technology we can identify problem areas and proceed with “spot digs” minimizing yard disruption as well your pocket book.
Working for local municipalities as well residential and commercial clients we have become a leading local provider of these services. With a full line of excavators for different applications as well state of the art equipment Vortech provides solutions.
Below are a series of pictures from a recent storm water or “parking lot ” drainage system that required replacement using 8″ CSA approved piping on a commercial property.
Duncan Burst Pipe Repair
This was a broken sewer line which required our burst pipe repair. We were able to pin point the location using our camera/transmitter and conduct a site specific dig minimizing yard damage and placing a smile on the face of the owner. We invest in the best equipment to localize drainage problems and eliminate total yard destruction.

What our customers say:
"I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Charles and the crew at Vortech. I have used their services on two separate occasions and both times I was impressed with their professionalism and excellent customer service. This is a professional, trustworthy, and reliable company that I highly recommend to everyone. They give upfront and honest quotes. They come prepared and their work is fast, efficient, and dependable. Based on prior experience, this is not a given in this industry. So before you go with the big name alternative, consider giving Vortech a call instead. I will never call anyone else."
"Vortech Plumbing came recommended. I met Charles, we agreed on a price with no hidden fees or contracts. The following week had his two men at our house removing bathroom fixtures and installing a new Soaker tub and Shower unit. Drywall was completed and had them back to install the fixtures and trim. My experience with this company was excellent. I will highly recommend them and have to friends and family. An old fashioned hand shake style service is what we received. Such a pleasure to do business with. Great guys, good service at value price. Thanks again."
"Vortech was recommended by a family member to evaluate a loss of water pressure in our home. A broken water main was determined to be the cause under the concrete slab of our home. We had three companies come and quote the job. We decided on Vortech, their approach and expertise separated them from the others and was as well most cost efficient. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the outcome and professionalism shown and as such would highly recommend their services. Fast and very organized. Excellent job."
Dorothy Walton, RN
Choosing the right proffessional for our large home renovation, including two new bathrooms and laundry and kitchen, we went with Charles from Vortech Plumbing. New to the Cowichan Valley we had no experience with trades and felt it necessary to phone our local municipality for recommendations as well asked others in the community. Charles's name came up on several occasions. A true professional with excellent communication and patience. The job was done well within our time allowance and the quote honored. In short a pleasure to work with. Vortech Plumbing will be plumbing our new home next spring and highly recommend their services and knowledgable staff.
I had a serious drainage issue on my property. I called Charles from Vortech Plumbing and Drainage and he promptly assessed the situation and provided a logical and affordable solution. What a refreshing change to deal with a true and knowledgeable professional who quotes a fair price and then honors it!. No surprises and no hidden charges. The work was done quickly and to a very high standard. I will highly recommend Vortech.
Sometimes you just luck out... Having just purchased a new home in Maple Bay we had the very good fortune of being steered to Vortech Plumbing by a friend. We had a drainage problem and needed it fixed. At first, we all assumed it was a simple job but as the digging got deeper and the problem became more complex we realized just how lucky we were to have Charles and his crew working on our behalf. Charles and his men were excellent; pleasant, hard working, as tidy as you can be working in mud, and always willing to explain what they were doing and why. Charles briefed us at each step of the way and made sure we were comfortable with their progress and direction. The end result was much better than we had hoped for and we're very happy with the work and the clean up. I would not hesitate to recommend Charles and Vortech Plumbing and Drainage (and already have) to anyone in need of drainage or plumbing work. The problem will be solved efficiently, effectively and with open and honest communication. Have a great day Charles.... and thank you.
