Maintenance Plumbing Cannot Be Done By An Amateur Handyman In Runaway Bay

Maintenance of your plumbing and drainage fixtures is not a task for the unlicensed, inexperienced, ill-equipped amateur handyman.

Your plumbing and drainage infrastructure can be complex to protect your health. Maintaining your plumbing should not be subject to assumptions and speculation from an unlicensed, inexperienced amateur who gets his work off Airtasker and his plumbing knowledge from the Bunnings website and YouTube.

A handyman is not a licensed plumber and cannot legally work on any part of any building’s plumbing, drainage or gas infrastructure.

At Whywait, we have specialised in providing superior plumbing maintenance services for 47 years. We ensure every Runaway Bay Plumbers job is attended to promptly and professionally. Above all, we guarantee that all plumbing, hot water and drainage infrastructure we work on for you is legally compliant to safeguard your family’s health and insurance coverage.

Had the hot water system blow on our 20 year old property, called why wait and had a professional on our door within an hour. System needed a complete replacement due to its age and had a great recommendation from Gary that’s been going great ever since. Just had the toilet system reach it’s end of life as well so called WhyWait and exact same great experience again. Response within an hour, inspection and advice on solution, came out the very next day with the systems and replaced them in time fro Christmas. Can’t recommend Gary and WhyWait enough if you’re ever stuck and need a professional, quick resolution to your plumbing needs.

Plumbing Maintenance In Runaway Bay Must Be Legally Performed by QBCC Licensed Plumbers And Plumbing Contractors

In recent months there has been a huge spike in unlicensed handymen advertising that they can perform plumbing work in Runaway Bay. It has become such a threat to public health that the QBCC has issued a public warning under section 20J 1(i) of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991.

Your plumbing is not a simplistic plaything. Plumbing is classified as a critical public health infrastructure. Legally compliant plumbing, drainage and gasfitting work are essential to ensuring the health and safety of the entire community.

This ensures the safety and protection of the entire community by providing clean, safe drinking water, sanitary drains and sewers to dispose of wastewater, and gas pipes and appliances that are fit for purpose.

We are aware there is a perception that using a licensed plumber or gas fitter is expensive. The reality is using a licensed plumber is an investment that protects your family’s health. Using an unlicensed handyman can null and void your insurance coverage plus potentially leave you with expensive legal and financial implications.

Earlier this week I woke to find the main water pipe that supplies water to the house had burst underground and I had to shut the water supply off. I called Whywait Plumbing Services at 7:30am and they arrived around 30 minutes later and got straight into fixing it. I was quoted upfront so I knew what the cost would be but was pleasantly surprised when the invoice was a bit less as the job took less time then expected. I highly recommend Whywait Plumbing Services and will definitely use them again, they were professional and courteous.
