Did you know

Only licensed plumbers and drainers are authorised to work on and install water and sewerage systems and the fixtures that connect to those systems. Licensed builders, owner builders, tilers or handy men are not permitted to undertake any plumbing and sewerage drainage work. Drainage pipes must be inspected before they are covered. Water pipes must be inspected before the walls are sheeted. Getting drainage and plumbing approvals after work has been covered will quadruple the price of approvals. Builders are allowed to install stormwater drainage pipes. Experience shows they use unskilled labourers and take very little care when laying stormwater drains. An experienced licensed plumber drainer can install toilet suites, sinks, taps, sewer drains, stormwater drains, hot water systems, rain water pumps, septic tanks, onsite sewerage treatment systems, rain water tanks, hot and cold water pipes and more. Saniflo systems allow you to put bathrooms, kitchens, toilets and laundries in basements, sub floor areas and where the sewerage system is to far away for a normal drainage system.
