The golden rule is that any work that involves sanitary plumbing or potable water supply must be carried out by a licensed plumber.
These include work such as
- The installation of sanitary fixtures and appliances (e.g. toilets, sinks, showers)
- The installation of the pipes and fittings that supply water to those sanitary fixtures and appliances
- The installation of the associated traps, waste or soil pipes, ventilation pipes and overflow pipes connected with those fixtures
All Gasfitting work MUST be done by a certified gasfitter.
Clearing a drain blockage can be done by anyone, however, whenever a drain is opened up, altered, reconstructed, extended or repaired then this work can only be legally undertaken by a licensed drainlayer.
We highly recommend that any temporary repairs done by the homeowner, of leaking waterpipes, roof or guttering are checked by our team as soon as possible after the repair.
