Plumbing Fixtures to Inspect in a New Home
A plumber is responsible for installing, repairing, and maintaining pipes, fixtures, and other plumbing used for water distribution and wastewater disposal in commercial and industrial buildings.
In new constructions, plumbers are an essential part of the site. For some large projects, the plumber may be supplied with a design that has been produced by a plumbing consultant, a person who documents a suitable design for the project’s needs. If no plan is supplied though, the plumber’s job is to determine where pipes should be laid, and then to install the piping systems.
If you are building a new home, it’s important for your builder to liaise with your plumber before the work commences so that everyone’s clear about where the pipes will be fitted. Once the plumbing design is complete and the pipes are all in place, the plumber will connect the plumbing to fixtures like sinks, showers, and washing machines. A plumber may also handle gas lines for heating and cooking.
Plumbing work falls under eight different areas: water supply, gas fitting, sewage, installation of appliances, drainage, mechanical services (heating, cooling & ventilation), fire protection, and garbage disposal.
Do your drains drain slowly? Slower than normal? Does your drainage make strange sounds, or smell bad? Or does your water rise in your toilet bowl every time you drain your bath water or use the shower? These are all classic signs of a clogged drain, which can be caused by a variety of different things like sanitary towels, tree roots, or kids’ toys. No matter what the cause is, a blocked drain must never be left.
Have you got damp spots in your garden? Noticeable drop in water pressure? Moldy or damp areas in your home? Or rusty, dirty water coming from your taps? Chances are you may have a water leak.
When you have a clog in your piping system or need a new toilet fixture installed the obvious move is to call your trusty local plumber. This is because fixing drains and toilets are only a portion of a plumber’s job.
Plumbers specialize in the toilet, bathtub/shower, and sink fixture installations. Plumbers are also called for other appliance installations in your home including the dishwasher and washing machine/dryer combos, water heaters, and more. These units require a safe connection to your home’s water line which only a plumber can provide.

- Sanitary – This work relates to any part of an above-ground sanitary plumbing system that connects sanitary fixtures (toilets, basins, taps, sinks, showers) and appliances (dishwashers, washing machines) to a disposal system or below-ground sanitary drainage system.
- Drainage – Work involving any part of a below-ground sanitary drainage system from the above-ground sewage or waste pipes to the disposal system; and any design work that is incidental to, or associated with it. Similarly, stormwater drainage connects the roof water downpipes to the disposal point of the drainage.
One of the biggest problems we face today is with leaky taps, broken toilets and leaking pipes, clogged drains and garbage disposal are all water-related problems. Plumbing as it relates to water supply refers to the construction, installation, replacement, repair, alteration, maintenance, testing, or commissioning of any water supply service.
Similar to water supply, gas fitting refers to any work done on any pipe, appliance, flue, fitting, apparatus, control, or another item that is involved with the supply or use of gas. Gas plumbing is a specialized field, so ensure that your plumber is appropriately licensed to undertake gas repair or maintenance.
