What Makes a Good Plumber

hire a plumber melbourne

All good plumbers must possess specific characteristics. At Reed Plumbing and Drainage Solutions, we are proud to have some of the best plumbers in the industry who are passionate about their jobs and are proud to deliver top-notch customer service daily to our customers.
Below is a list of some of the top attributes that every outstanding plumber should have:

  1. License/Certification

One of the required credentials in the plumbing profession is a state license. In Victoria, the licensing authority is the Victorian Building Authority, or VBA.
It’s a requirement by most states and territories that every service provider has considerable experience and must pass state-approved exams for them to obtain a certificate or license. Most professionals s get their onsite training through an apprenticeship. To ensure that service providers are well skilled and knowledgeable so that they can deal with all plumbing and drainage issues, they are need to pass certain tests as well as meet specific requirements before they can become licensed.

  1. A good plumber must be experienced.

One of the important attributes of a good plumber is experience. This experience can be acquired through years of learning or maybe in a vocational or in a trade school accredited by a national trade union.

  1. Dedication

A dedicated plumber will turn up when they say and understands how valuable their clients time is. They need to be dedicated to their work and take pride in doing the best job for their clients.

  1. They should consider safety first.

A good plumber should always prioritise safety. This relates to the safety of themselves as well as the safety of those around them. Following safety procedures as well as using safe practices to the letter will ensure that plumbing problems are handled skillfully.

  1. Must be physically fit

A plumber is likely to find himself in scenarios where he will need to exert himself physically in certain situations. This could include crouching under a sink, working on top of the roof, or a multitude of other uncomfortable spaces; a good plumber will need to be in good physical shape.

  1. A good plumber is punctual.

Punctuality is yet another critical credential that every good plumber should possess. This is because being on time goes hand in hand with one’s work attitude and is most likely to affect the quality of customer service.

  1. Have great communication skills

Plumbers need to be able to listen to their clients issues and make them feel comfortable in order to find out the nature of the problem and advise of their best options. Good communication will reduce the chances of misunderstanding and potential conflicts and will enhance the client/plumber relationship

  1. Possess problem-solving skills

In every profession, possessing good problem-solving skills is vital. This is even more important in plumbing as a plumber must be able to assess the problem, evaluate their options quickly, and quickly determine the best course of action to provide you, the client, with the best outcome.
