Finding a good plumber in Cape Town can be difficult. In recent years the plumbing trade has seen a big increase in people claiming to be plumbers and offering their services, yet most are not licensed and their ‘cheap fixes’ lead to more problems down the line. That is why it is important to have the number of a good plumber in Cape Town, someone you can call and trust to do a good job. Here are a few things to look for in a plumber:
Ask your potential plumber if he has a plumbing license. If they are licensed, not only does it mean that they attended a certified plumbing college, but it also means that they are fully insured and their work is too, which protects you from any future catastrophe.
Ask for Experience
Depending on the plumbing job, it is wise to ask for the experience the plumber has. Some jobs, such as changing taps or fixing a leaky faucet are routine for most plumbers, but others such as drain cleaning or repairing a faulty geyser can require specialist knowledge. That is why you should always ask about any relevant experience, and find out how long the plumber has been operating.
It is always good to shop around and get a feel for how much a plumbing job is going to cost you. However, just because a plumber is willing to give you a quick quote over the phone does not mean he is the right one, sometimes it is best to have a plumber come and take a look. Generally it is a good idea to ask about hourly rates, as well as asking about call out and traveling fees; you don’t want to get stuck with a big bill for a small plumbing job, just because the plumber charges for travels and call out!
Ask Friends or Other Service Providers
If you have a good electrician, chances are he will know a good plumber. Alternatively, ask your friends if they have the number of a good plumber to help with your problem.
Finally, find a plumber who actually enjoys and takes pride in what they do. Since this person is going to come into your home, ensure it is someone you feel comfortable with and who enjoys what he does. A plumber who takes pride is his work will go the extra mile to solve your problem.
