What do plumbers do?
Qualified and licensed plumbers provide a range of services relating to plumbing for residential, commercial or industrial properties. It is typically considered the that ‘dirty job that someone else has to do’. Generally most people don’t give a second thought to their plumbing until a problem arises with a leak or blocked drain. The truth is, plumbing is the one system that your home in Sydney that you absolutely can’t be without. It keeps your home clean, hygienic, virus free and safe. It enables you to cook, clean and do many other things we take for granted. Without plumbing you’d have no hot water, no gas to cook with, no flush for your toilets, no swimming pools or no air conditioning.
Plumbers plan, install, maintain and repair all the systems in your property that allow water and gas to flow in and out. Consider where these systems exist: bathrooms, toilets, kitchens, laundries, swimming pools, barbecues, air conditioners which are in all rooms of your home. What you generally see or experience is the fitting or fixture e.g the toilet, vanity sink, tap etc. Although what you don’t see is the system of piping, valves and fittings that allow these systems to work correctly. These have to be carefully selected, placed and installed inside your building walls by plumbers or gas fitters. Without this your plumbing won’t operate effectively, quietly and in a way that keeps you and your family safe.
Why can't I fix or install my own plumbing?
Like many skilled trades there is a lot more to plumbing than meets the eye and a YouTube video won’t provide all the answers to every scenario. Plumbing in Sydney is very carefully regulated in order to keep it safe while also ensuring standards are met, for example;
Sewage and waste – have to be managed carefully in order to avoid the dangers of exposure to harmful bacteria and poisonous gases.
Natural and LPG gas – is highly combustible and requires special care with procedures to avoid ignition or explosions.
Hot water – regulations also exist to ensure that the water in your hot water tank is of a sufficient temperature to prevent the growth of dangerous legionella bacteria. At the same time, your plumbing also needs to incorporate valves that limit the temperature of the water coming out from your shower, so that it won’t burn your skin
Piping – the materials used, sizing, types of joins and gradients used must meet the correct measurements or falls to not only be legal, but to function correctly.
So while some people may feel like it is possible to replace a washer in their leaking tap themselves or unclog a drain, you may be surprised as to the underlying issues these problems are causing that only a qualified plumber can identify and remedy correctly.
Does a plumber have to be licensed?
All of these scenarios and requirements are just a small example of why all plumbing must be done by a licensed plumber in Australia. Trying to take matters into your own hands could lead to disastrous damage to your property, or even injury or death. This becomes even more important in unit blocks or properties with shared walls. Plus on a more practical level it could void any insurance claims.
So yes, a plumber has to be licensed and it is easy to check online for their current license and for a safety certificate.
For the safety of homeowners all states and territories require plumbing work to be carried out by a licensed contractor. Plumbers are licensed for different kinds of work and unlicensed plumbing work is not only illegal, it can create safety problems down the track. Licensed plumbers are highly qualified, have completed their apprenticeship and accreditation to obtain their license. The Nu-Trend team are qualified plumbers in Sydney.
What are the most common services a Plumber in Sydney provide?
Most plumbers in Sydney will provide a very similar service. Generally, a plumber will diagnose any issues, repair them to the highest standard possible or give you suggestions and advice. The exact process or inclusions that you need will depend on the situation and these are generally grouped into the following;
If you’re installing a new kitchen, bathroom, or dishwasher, you’ll need a plumber to get the pipes connected. Your plumber can help with fridge water line installations, mixer tap installations, new showerheads and other items. They’ll take a look at your property and the existing set up, then use the right tools, pipes and equipment to get everything connected correctly & legally to ensure there are no water leaks.
Fixing water leaks
One of the most common plumbing repairs is leaking showers and taps. Not only does the dripping water become irritating, but it can lead to flooding, water wastage excessive water bills and in some cases damage to your property or that of neighbours. Your plumber will do a leak inspection and turn off the water for a look with specialist equipment. Then we can repair or patch the leaks or install any new parts or pipes needed.
Hot water system repairs and installations
There’s not much worse than running out of hot water for showers, washing machines or dishwashing, especially in winter. Find a plumber near you to help get it fixed faster when you need emergency hot water system repair or upgrades. A standard gas plumbing service can make sure everything’s safe and working as it should. A plumbing contractor will assess your hot water needs, recommend any solutions and then either repair or replace your hot water system to get up and running again. There are lots of different products and methods available these days for hot water systems.
Your pipes are crucial for bringing water in and draining wastewater away from your property. Although they can get damaged by storms, tree roots, aging, ground movement or items blocking a pipe. If you think you have a pipe problem, it’s important to find a local plumber near you and call them in for pipe repairs as soon as possible to minimise damage. If the pipes are exposed, your plumber may disconnect any water services to them, then remove and replace the damaged sections. Depending on the situation this could involve excavating or running new lines.
Blocked drains and toilets
Blocked drains and toilets aren’t just smelly they can lead to overflows, cause flooding and even health issues. If you’ve unsuccessfully tried to clear the blockage yourself, call in a local plumber. They’ll use more advanced (and powerful) tools to clear even the most stubborn drain blockages and toilet blockages without damaging your pipes and fittings. Nu-Trend has the latest high pressure hot or cold water jet equipment and CCTV Digital Camera inspection tools to do this efficiently.
This is normally a type of plumbing that saves water around the home and reduces strain on the public water supply. It can save money as the less water you use, the less you pay for. Green plumbing services can include the installation and servicing of solar hot water plumbing, rainwater tank installation and grey water system plumbing.
Grease trap installation and maintenance
We can help small businesses with their plumbing like the installation and maintenance of grease traps. Incorrect installations allows greasy wastewater to discharge to the sewer where it can cause blockages and chokes.
