Always ensure you are hiring a licensed plumber

When searching for a plumber, ensure they carry the appropriate licensing!

Finding a good plumber can always be a chore, but when looking to have plumbing work done, be sure to ask about licensing to keep you safe.  As can be seen in this aritcle, an unlicensed plumber can cause quite a problem….

 Unlicensed plumber fined $3000 for repair work

An unlicensed plumber has been fined thousands of dollars after he failed to repair a leaking hot water cylinder in a Hastings home.

“Tradespeople are required to carry a current authorisation card — https://i0.wp.com/media0.giphy.com/media/26FxL6qSP2ZvjVCne/giphy.gifand homeowners and property managers should ask to sight it to protect themselves from any health and safety or insurance risk,” Sawyers said.

If a homeowner believes that work has been done by someone who is not authorised, or has concerns about the competency of a tradesperson, they should notify the board. Read the full story here…


Now of course this is a worst case scenario and highly unlikely to happen, but why take a chance with your plumbing services.  Always look to hire an honest reliable plumber to ensure that you get the service that you deserve.
