A little DIY doesn’t hurt occasionally, right? We explain why you need a licensed plumber for your bathroom, kitchen and laundry renovations.


Why you need a licensed plumber for your bathroom, kitchen and laundry renovation

Thinking of renovating your kitchen, bathroom or laundry? While you may be tempted to save money by doing the plumbing yourself, it could also be unsafe and unlawful. A faulty DIY job can also cause trouble down the track, such as a lack of functionality. Our experts at Aquaperla  explain why you need a licensed plumber.

Do I need to a licensed plumber?
Did you know you are required by law to use a licensed plumber? This is because your plumbing system is vital to the functioning of your home. Just think of the inconvenience a burst pipe has, not to mention the health and safety implications. Plumbers undergo special training to safely work on various aspect of your plumbing. Licensed plumbers are also instrumental in home renovations, where the removal and installation of plumbing elements are integral to the functioning of rooms – specifically kitchens, bathrooms and laundries.

The Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) is the technical reference for all plumbing work and is an integral part of the National Construction Code (NCC). It applies to all aspects of plumbing work, specifically:

  • Sanitary plumbing
  • Drainage and stormwater drainage systems
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
  • Wastewater systems

Licensed plumbers have experience

Licensed plumbers have the experience and know-how to do the job right. With their many years of experience, they will know exactly what to do in any situation and will be able to troubleshoot any problems that you may have during the renovation process.


Licensed plumbers have the right tools

Professional plumbers have all the right equipment to get the job done. Many plumbers constantly upgrade their equipment to keep up with technological advances.


Licensed plumbers can oversee deliveries of bathroom fixtures and materials

A qualified plumber can be your liaison with your supplier and pick up any fixtures and materials that are needed for your job. In addition, they will also obtain the required permits from the municipal board so that you don’t break any rules.


Licensed plumbers take care of all safety measures

Renovations performed by an unqualified person could lead to potential accidents and injuries. It might also lead to toilet flooding, clogging or a burst water main. A poorly executed renovation could also result in mould and mildew growth. Licensed plumbers go the extra mile to ensure no one gets hurt on the job and that the kitchen, bathroom or laundry renovation is done perfectly.


A good plumbing job can add value to your home

A good plumbing job can make you money when/if it comes time to sell. Conversely, a faulty DIY job can lead to fines and heartache. Worse still, there is no insurance coverage for DIY plumbing jobs.
