Qualities to Look Out For When Hiring a Professional Plumber

Let’s face it, at one point or the other,  every home will experience one form of plumbing issue or another. They could be leaky pipes, clogged drainages, dripping faucets or the like of these.  

Regardless of the kind of plumbing issues your home may be faced with, I think we can all agree that dealing with these issues can be quite frustrating.  

Luckily, there are professional plumbers in Blue Mountains that are well trained to deal with these issues for us. However, not all plumbers are competent enough to deliver a good job. 


So how do we Identify the true professionals? What are some of the qualities to look out for? Below are 4  things you can look out for when hiring a professional plumber. 


4 Qualities of a Professional Plumber 

Perhaps you have put your trust in some of these supposedly professional plumbers in the past and have gotten a sloppy job in return. Or perhaps you’ve heard of fatal mishaps caused by plumbing issues. Trust me when I say you are not alone.  

Although not all plumbers in Blue Mountains are the same, there are a few qualities that every professional plumber should have. 

Let’s take a look at some of these qualities. 


  1. Reviews 
    This is perhaps the easiest way to check the credibility of a professional plumber. The plumber you want to hire would likely work at a plumbing company, and many of these companies own websites with reviews. You can always visit their website and check for reviews.  Perhaps, the plumber you want to hire works independently, in that case, you can always ask for references for recent projects. If they are confident in their capacity to deliver, they would be willing to give you the names and contact information of past clients. You can always get in touch with them and ask them about the competency of the plumber.
  2. Licence and Insurance Any plumber who has the intent of continuing the profession long term would likely have a licence and insurance. This shows that they truly care about the state of their business and your home as well. 
    Ask for an insurance certificate and crosscheck with the agency to know if the policies are still enforced. To know if their licence is still functional, you can always refer to your state website.
  3. Career Attributes Before going ahead to hire a plumber, you need to ask yourself some important questions.
    How is their communication skill? Do they sound professional? Are they polite? How about their attention to detail and safety? Although these might seem insignificant; however, they can help you tell a lot about the plumber. Your plumber must be safety-minded, know how to talk to you as a client, and most important of all; they should have good problem-solving skills.  Your plumber should be able to assess a problem and find the best solution for it. 
  4. Warranty
    Professional plumbers in Blue Mountains would most likely have knowledge of the warranty placed on every new part they install and also add their own workmanship warranty. This is an attribute that any good tradesperson should have and it may vary depending on the project.
