Plumbing is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of any construction. It is not necessary for us to tell what will happen if the plumbing is not done properly. Whether it is a minor issue or a major issue the problem caused will be on a massive scale.
Things could be way worse if there is a plumbing issue in a commercial building. Hence it is important to choose the right commercial plumber. In this article, we will see some of the questions that you need to ask before hiring a commercial plumber.
Is the plumber licensed, experienced and insured?
In general, the licensed plumbers will have the required knowledge in the field, and hence we can be a bit confident the work will be carried out properly without any flaws. No one can deny the fact that there is nothing in this world that can substitute experience. Hiring an experienced professional is advantageous in many ways. It is safe to have insurance because there are good possibilities that the plumber might get hurt. In case of any mishaps, the insurance company will bear all the medical expenses.
Do they charge for estimates?
Not just plumbing, in any construction related activities the first thing that most of the people do is the estimation as it will give a clear picture of the expenditure. Most of the companies will not charge for the estimation process. But there are a few who charge for it. So it is essential that you be sure whether the individual or the company will be charging for the estimation process.
How do they charge?
When it comes to charging, different companies follow different patterns. Some of them charge on the basis of the time they work and some charge a flat fee for their services. To avoid further confusions in the future, it is always better to ask them about their charging pattern and get things clarified in advance. It will also give a clear picture of how much you would have to pay them.
How long has the company been in business?
This is one of the important things that you need to know before hiring a commercial plumber.

What is the warranty policy?
The warranty that is being offered by the company is very important. It is mandatory for the plumbers to give a guarantee for the work that they have done. You need to be crystal clear about the protocol that you need to follow to claim the guarantee and warranty. In most of the cases, it is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

QUEENSLAND’S Natural Resources Minister Stephen Robertson has laid the blame for the fluoride overdose in Brisbane’s water supplies squarely on the shoulders of SEQ Water.
The State Government admitted in late May that it had initially released incorrect information concerning the incident.
The Government’s correct information revealed that the contamination happened in April, affecting up to 400 homes in the northern suburb of Joyner, as well as 200 children at a school camp.
Queensland Premier Anna Bligh ordered an independent investigation into the incident, to be lead by International Water Centre chief Mark Pascoe.
The report found the overdose was caused by a combination of equipment failures to which the operators did not respond appropriately. It recommends more training for staff.
Robertson says he has made in clear to SEQ Water that the Government will not tolerate another such blunder. Should another incident occur, he says he will not hesitate in removing the board.
The North Pine fluoride facility will be closed until at least September while repairs are completed.
THE QUEENSLAND Government has announced an independent investigation into a series of faults in the state’s new south-east water fluoridation system, which saw up to 20 times the allowable dose of fluoride added to drinking water supplies.
Premier Anna Bligh told the State Parliament that International Water Centre chief Mark Pascoe would conduct the enquiry into the overdose incident.
Pascoe will examine the design and operation of the North Pine fluoridation system, as well as its monitoring, notification and emergency systems. He will also look for possible breaches by authorities and report back to the government by 26 June.
The Queensland Government revealed on 14 May that the fluoride was added to water which supplies around 4000 homes in Brisbane’s north.
SEQWater, the government-owned company in charge of the system, has also stated that six of its water treatment plants did not put enough fluoride into the water in the first three months of 2009.
Premier Bligh says the North Pine fluoride dosing system will remain offline while the investigation is carried out.
Fluoride is currently being phased into Queensland’s drinking water supplies and will be available to 95% of the state’s population when the program is finished in December 2012.
SCOTTISH Water is using Micronics portable flowmeters to establish the load profiles of its water treatment sites.
The PDFM IV is being used to survey wastewater flow rates at 111 facilities around the Dundee area.
The company is undertaking the study so it can analyse the performance of its plants. The instrument has enabled its engineers to verify diurnal sewage patterns and prioritise future developments.
According to the water provider, they chose the ultrasonic, clamp-on device because it provided non-contact analysis and could be easily installed. The survey has is 50% complete.
AIR Springs Supply has highlighted the use of its lifting bags to reposition and reduce stress on pipelines.
The diversity of terrain and climate conditions across Australia provides particular challenges in the operation of long-haul pipelines. Having pipes running in good working order is vital for the security and safety of the fluid they are carrying.
A single pipe may run over hundreds of kilometres and encounter everything from hills and ridges to gullies and trenches. The pipes have to be lifted or relocated in order to avoid such problems. This can inflict potentially dangerous strains on the structure.
The Nacap group specialises in the layout of industrial pipelines. They use Pronal lifting bags to position the pipelines without creating excessive strain.
Gauges along sections of the pipeline guide the rate of inflation needed for each particular structure. The company says the movements can be as small as a single millimetre and are more precise than hydraulics.
CLP 67 cushions have the capacity to lift 67t as well as the ability to spread evenly over an area for smaller-scale control. The pipework provider claims the bags provide gentle handling of the pipes, resulting in a safer workplace, a lower risk of infrastructure damage and a more secure pipe system.
