Despite providing one of the most important services in Singapore, plumbers are often overlooked as a profession in Singapore. However we do not realize at how truly important their jobs are, as we take the clean water and sanitation facilities we use daily for granted.
Sometimes, whenever a plumbing issue arises, such as leaky taps or choked drains, us homeowners would attempt to solve them on our own. Even if we manage to solve these issues, they might just be a temporary fix which might culminate in something even more severe in the long run. All this just to save cost at the initial stage. Although it has to be said that as much as we can DIY the simple plumbing issues, the more serious ones have to be left to the professionals.
With their years of experience and the appropriate tools at their disposal, a professional plumber would be able to troubleshoot and effectively restore your plumbing to its original state.
However that being said, the professional plumbers you hire are required to be certified by the Public Utilities Board (PUB). That is one of the key considerations before you engage one to remedy your home’s plumbing issues.
Most plumbing professionals also do provide a 24 hour plumbing service. This would come in handy as you might never know when your home might face a plumbing or drainage emergency. As crucial as emergencies go, it is important to have them dealt with quick response times. Thus a plumber’s response time might mean the difference between a flooded toilet bowl or a flooded home.
As a professional plumbing service, homeowners also have to ensure the plumbers hired offer warranties and guarantees for the services and repairs they provide. It would be at your disadvantage to pay for additional costs if another issue were to arise from the original problem which was not properly serviced. Even then, the rates they charge also have to be affordable and reasonable for the appropriate services provided.
