Facing a frustrating plumbing issue? Whether you need to unblock a stubborn drain, fix a dripping tap, or repair a burst pipe, you need a licensed plumber that you can rely on.
To help you with your search, we asked the locals and conducted our own research. From there, we came up with this list of the top three plumbing companies in Tuggeranong. These businesses deliver industry-leading plumbing services, all backed by a gold standard in customer care.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
What makes a great plumber?
Great plumbers can do it all. They have the skills and experience to unblock pipes, re-plumb an entire house, end everything in between. Keep the following traits in mind as you begin to research plumbers in the Tuggeranong region:
- Reliable and respectful. The best plumbers arrive on time, work quickly and treat their customers’ homes as if they were their own. This means minimising mess and disruption and handling your belongings with respect.
- Upfront pricing. The best plumbers provide transparent quotes so you can rest easy knowing you won’t be hit with hidden charges or surprise fees.
- Licensed and insured. Plumbers must be licensed and meet specific eligibility requirements to practice in the ACT. Be sure that your plumber has their licence and up-to-date public and products liability insurance.
- Quality parts. Cheap parts might save you money in the short term, but generally don’t last as long. For genuine value for money, look for a plumber that commits to using the best parts and products on the market.
Important essentials to check before engaging a plumber
Master Plumbers ACT recommends you conduct these checks before engaging a plumber. They’re easy and only take five minutes. They’ll ensure you don’t engage a dodgy plumber.
- Check that the plumber has a registered business by checking they’re registered through the Australian Business Registration website.
- Check that the plumber is registered on the Access Canberra List of Licensed Plumbers. If you can’t find their name, they’re probably not licensed.
- Check the plumber’s website and advertising. Make sure their ABN and license number are posted and check if they have Public Liability Insurance. Also check if they hold a membership in a reputable industry association such as Master Plumbers ACT. If they don’t have a website or don’t have this information on their site, it’s likely best to move on.
- Ask the plumber you choose to bring proof of their Public Liability Insurance when they arrive on site.
