Plumbing Code Violations
NSW follows the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) for all plumbing and drainage work. The PCA is a mandatory standard for all plumbing and drainage work. According to the PCA, plumbing and drainage installations must be designed, built, installed, repaired or altered as well as maintained. For plumbers and drainers to be compliant with the PCA, there are two provisions. It is also possible for the work to be completed under the ‘Deemed to Satisfy’ provision, which means that it has been completed in accordance with AS/NZS 3500. The other type of performance-based provision is where the work (usually designed by a hydraulic engineer or consultant) meets or exceeds AS/NZS 3500 requirements.
We adhere to all of the guidelines and standards set forth by Fair Trading NSW for providing better service to our customers.

Commercial and residential properties can both be subject to plumbing code violations, which are issued for a number of reasons. Building inspections, remodelling projects, and complaints pertaining to older buildings are typically where plumbing violation notices are received for commercial buildings. Plumbing renovations without a permit, illegal plumbing (such as certain drain pipes), and tenant/neighbour complaints are common violations for residential properties. Plumbing code violations do not necessarily indicate something wrong has been done. The majority of the population does not know what plumbing codes are.
