We know EVERY aspect of choosing and buying plumbing fixtures. We are experts at plumbing installation, and are available for consultations.
Just Add Water is a full service plumbing fixture showroom in North Vancouver. As an independent showroom we offer competitive pricing, objective reviews, and a variety of plumbing products not found in any other showroom. We have over thirty years experience in the building industry, and can help with many aspects of your renovation or new build. We specialize in plumbing fixtures, but we also help with space planning and decorating ideas. We also have a working relationship with many contractors and can connect you with the various tradespeople that you may require for your project.
Plumbing Product Sales
We have dozens of suppliers, and can find the best product options for your project. We are very familiar with the most trusted brands in plumbing products and the features they offer, and can help you select the best products to fit your style and budget.We are among the first to know of new products that are coming onto the market, so even if you are looking for cutting edge, we are the showroom to visit.
We can help with space planning in renovation or new building projects. We will help to ensure that the fixtures you choose will work in the space provided.
If you are planning a bathroom renovation, we can start you on your space planning adventure. Bring in your space, drawn with a few measures on a piece of paper, and we will draw it to scale on our computer program, and place your fixtures in the drawing. Often, we can greatly enhance the use of space in this important room in your house.
We are more than a supply store. We are available for consultation and support for the duration of your installation. We know what your contractor and plumber will require and when. Once you have chosen your fixtures, we will provide your plumber with the specs he will need, and we are available for consultation with them if or when they need us.
Product Installation Advice
When a product is on the jobsite and the plumber and contractor have questions or problems with regards to the installation, we are available to help. his happens more often than people expect and it can be time consuming and costly if answers are not readily available. Sometimes it is because it is a new product for the plumber to install, sometimes it is a missing piece or a faulty product that requires attention. Whatever the reason, we are available to help.
We stay in touch with the market and offer competitive pricing both for our products and for our services. When budgets are tight, we have lines that have particularly good pricing and will use them to help you meet your budget.
That being said, as you will note in my blogs, it isn’t all about pricing. It is also about service, knowledge and expertise. Be very careful if price is your main criteria. It is the same labour cost to put in a million dollar faucet as it does to put in a twenty dollar one.
We are an independent showroom
We have access to any plumbing fixture product available in Canada. We are not affiliated with any one particular wholesaler, so we don’t limit your product choices. We also have unbiased opinions about product as we can sell you whichever brand is best for you, not just the brands our parent company has alliances with.
We meet with you to discuss what you are trying to achieve. Through a series of questions we will guide you through the process of choosing the right plumbing products for your project. We do ask a lot of questions. Sometimes it might feel like we are just being nosey, but really it is to help ensure that what you are choosing is the best option for you.
Just Add Water will compile a list of products that best suits your project, using the criteria and budget set by the client for the project.
If you would like the freedom to shop around, for a fee to cover our consultation time and expertise,and the time to pull your package together, we will issue the list of product with the retail pricing. You are free to use this list to shop around for the best pricing before you decide who or where to buy from.
Special Needs Consulting available
Do you have Special Needs? We enjoy working with clients who have Special Needs, or family members who do. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of these very unique renovations. Give us a call today to discuss how we can work with you.

We work with you, the homeowner, to pull together a complete fixture package for any room that has running water – the kitchen, the laundry/mud room, a garage/workroom, a powder room, an ensuite or any other water area.
We start with the plans, and do a product inventory of what products we want to ensure that we talk to the client about. We like to know that we have presented options to the client, and the best way to do that is to be prepared. From there, we are able to produce a list of proposed product, based on the style of the house in the plans, and a budget for the plumbing fixture package for the house.
When you come to us, it is best if you can bring a basic sketch of the area with some measurements on it. We may draw it to scale on our computer. But even a basic sketch gives us a sense of the space you are working with, and gives us an opportunity to give you some feedback regarding space planning. Having a sense of the space certainly ensures that we are talking about fixtures that will work in the space you have. If you have a scale drawing, that is even better, but not essential. Many times a basic sketch will help to facilitate the product choices as it will indicate what limitations there may be for sizing, for example, of the tub or shower.
If you require a replacement for an existing unit, for example a kitchen faucet, it is best to bring a picture of what is there now. Even if this picture is on your phone, it will answer many technical questions that we will have before we can guide you to the best replacement product. There aretimes when we can get a product repaired or replaced under warranty on your behalf.
When replacing a kitchen sink, it is best to measure the cabinet under the sink (left to right), and bring that in with you. There is no such thing as a standard kitchen sink cabinet, and you want to get the best possible combination of sinks for the given space.
We Go With the Flow!
We accommodate our clients by meeting them in the evenings after normal work hours. We also need to visit job sites and suppliers. Sometimes this precludes us from being open during normal working hours. If you are making a special trip to see us, please phone us to make sure we will be in. And yes, we would be very happy to meet you on your way home from work or during the evenings, if that is best for you. Let us know what works best for you.
We work with you, the contractor or plumber, to have your client ready to go, with choices made, orders placed and product available when you need it. Whether it is the rough in or trims, wework with you to ensure that your jobsite will run as smoothly as possible. We give you a heads up when we run into a long ship time or a backorder situation. We understand how a job site is run, and will do everything we can to ensure that there are no hold ups caused by product not being available when you need it. We also troubleshoot for you. When you get product that is faulty, missing parts or just isn’t the correct item, we will work to fix the problem quickly to keep the impact at the site to a minimum
