I have a water leak. Do I need a licensed plumber to fix it?

Many people take on house repairs and DIY themselves. This is not always the best option. If you discover a water leak, your first question will undoubtedly be why should I use a licensed plumber? The main reason is because you can be sure that the job is done correctly and won’t result in more costly repairs. When you call in the experts, like those at Plumbers Express, the water leak will be taken care of correctly and won’t likely result in additional problems. Here are the top reasons to call in a licensed plumber.

Follows rules and regulations

A licensed plumber is the person who has taken training and received certification for their duties, so you can be sure they are following the rules and regulations as set out in Building Codes. This ensures both that the work is performed correctly, and is also safe and doesn’t result in further damage or repairs. This includes work done directly in your home and whatever needs to be done outside your property.

Quick and efficient

A licensed plumber is practised in the art of fixing water leaks, and that means a quick and efficient job that is done right and won’t take up a lot of your time to complete. Instead of waiting around for hours or finding out your plumber isn’t going to show, you can count on the work being done in the timeframe outlined.

Stays on top of trends and new advances

Someone who is licensed is often required to take regular training and attend workshops to stay abreast of the newest products and repairs. An unlicensed plumber won’t always be under the same restrictions and may be using outdated or old information. Not only that, if there is further damage your insurance may not cover the work if it is carried out by an unlicensed tradesperson.


When considering why you should use a licensed plumber, the very word licensed implies certain values and work ethics. When you want a reliable plumber, it’s best to choose one that is licensed because they are reliable. The top plumbing companies in Australia will only hire plumbers with a license so you know you can count on them to arrive on time and complete the job in an efficient and timely manner.

A licensed plumber is the right person to call when you have a water leak or any other type of plumbing issue. They can do a good job and will fix the problem for you without concern about further issues and costs.

In short, if you need someone reliable, a licensed professional is always the best choice.
