General Plumbing FAQ's

Plumbing refers to the system of pipes, fixtures, and fittings that are used to convey water, gas, stormwater and waste in buildings. This system is responsible for supplying clean water for consumption, removing stormwater, waste and sewage, and providing gas for heating and cooking. Plumbing also includes the installation and maintenance of fixtures such as sinks, toilets, showers, and water heaters. A licensed plumber is trained to install, repair, and maintain plumbing systems to ensure their proper operation and safety.

To obtain the existing plumbing plans for your house, you can start by contacting your local council or building authority. They may have a copy of the plans on file if they were submitted during the construction process. If not, you can try contacting the builder or previous owner of the property to see if they have a copy. In some cases, you may need to hire a licensed plumber to inspect the plumbing system and create a new set of plans. If you require the underground sewer plans, please revert to your local water authority.

The coverage for plumbing problems may vary between insurance providers and policies. Generally, standard home insurance policies may cover sudden and accidental damage to plumbing systems, such as burst pipes or accidental leaks. However, damage resulting from wear and tear, or lack of maintenance may not be covered. It’s important to review your policy carefully and contact your insurance provider to clarify the coverage for plumbing problems. You may need to purchase additional coverage or a specific policy for certain plumbing issues.

The cost to re-plumb a house will depend on several factors such as the size of the house, the type of pipes and fittings used, and the extent of the work needed. On average, the cost can range from $5,000 to $25,000 or more. However, it’s important to get a detailed quote from a licensed plumber as the cost can vary widely depending on the specific circumstances of the house. Factors such as accessibility, existing damage or deterioration, and the complexity of the plumbing system can also affect the cost.

There are a variety of plastic plumbing pipes available on the market, making it difficult to determine the appropriate fix without a proper assessment. If you have a plastic plumbing issue, it’s important to have a licensed plumber inspect the pipe and identify the specific type of plastic and the location and extent of the damage or leak. Based on their assessment, the plumber can determine the appropriate method for fixing the issue, which may involve using specialized tools or materials. It’s crucial to seek professional assistance to ensure that the repair is done correctly and safely.
