Plumbing services are work on urgent and planned repairs, installation, and dismantling of plumbing, gas, sewerage, electrical, and plumbing equipment. Care and maintenance of plumbing must be carried out regularly so that its functioning is of high quality and safety.
Any owner can do some work with his own hands, but most of the work can be done by a specialist. I will inform you what you need to pay attention to by inviting a professional to perform plumbing services.
When is the plumbing service needed?
Anyone can perform plumbing work in the house, especially when manufacturers have simplified the assembly of individual elements, and the cost of service increases. However, not all work on the installation of communication systems can be done independently. In some cases, you will need qualified professional help.
Many believe that because they can connect two pipes or connect an electrical appliance, they can work like a "professional". However, only a real professional plumber has the right to perform plumbing work of any complexity, since he has undergone serious special training and received the relevant documents.
You can install, disassemble and replace the mixer yourself. And plumbing services will be required in the event of:
installation of water supply, gas pipeline, and heating systems;
installation of a toilet, dishwasher, and washing machine;
installation of a boiler, gas, electric, or TT-boiler;
assemblies of modern underfloor heating systems, IR and PLEN heating;
installation of cleaning filters, meters and shower cabins;
sewerage system wiring.
It is better to entrust these complex plumbing repair and maintenance work to a professional.
A modern apartment or private house is equipped with a large number of plumbing, electrical, sewer pipes, pipes, hoses. Only competent specialists can make all these systems function correctly and harmoniously with each other.
The most expensive and high-quality plumbing will not last long, if it is installed in an artisanal way, it will not last long. Having decided to save money without choosingkitchen plumbing services, you can end up spending serious money on replacing equipment or eliminating errors.
Replacing, repairing, laying, assembling, and installing plumbing equipment should be done by professionals. These are challenging tasks that require special skills. The slightest mistake in connecting the pipeline or other elements of communications can throw residents out of civilization, leaving housing without heat, water, and sewage.
Plumbing services are guarantee trouble-free operation of drainage, heating, and water supply systems. Incorrectly sized or incorrectly routed pipes can lead to long-term, repetitive, and even life-threatening problems.
An inexperienced foreman can perform work that does not meet the requirements of efficiency and safety, both through ignorance and deliberately violating the established rules and regulations. There is no law on the termination of the activities of such "plumbers", but there are legislative acts on the availability of certification of compliance of professional activities with established norms and standards.
Demand certification of professional activity!
Laws are tightened and impose more responsibility on the householder for the condition of the plumbing in his possession. If the apartment or house is privately owned, then the owner may be prosecuted for unauthorized work that does not comply with applicable law.
A professional plumber has registration with the relevant certification bodies, which allows him to install, repair, replace and maintain equipment, as well as give his certification for the work performed.
Any other person must apply for a written application for permission to service the plumbing equipment. Otherwise, the statutory regulations could be violated with the corresponding legal consequences. As a result, you will have to apply for certification from a professional of previously carried out work.
Specialists must confirm their qualifications when changing legislation, and for this, they must:
make annual contributions to a professional organization;
pay for retraining and confirmation of qualifications;
stop working for the period of retraining and, accordingly, lost earnings;
comply with safety regulations, which entails additional costs.
All these costs increase the cost of those services for which you need to pay professionals for their work.
Therefore, the services of a plumber with the presence of certification cannot be cheap. In Moscow and other large cities, prices are slightly higher, in the regions they are lower, but high-quality plumbing repairs are estimated accordingly.
Any work with gas supply installations is illegal if carried out by craftsmen without registration with the relevant authorities. Using the services of such a “specialist” may also be punishable by law. Therefore, the homeowner must make sure that the plumber has a mandatory certification for the right to carry out gas works with a list of specific operations on the back of the document.
