As a local plumbing company with over 15 years of experience in the industry, we know most people think that the only thing plumbers do is fix blocked toilets. Plumbing is a dirty job someone else has to do – which in most residential plumbing cases is pretty accurate. But plumbing is much more complex than that, so if you want to know what plumbers actually do, read on.
Plumbing keeps your house or commercial property clean, hygienic, and safe. It lets you cook or keep warm with gas and ensures your water is heating and flowing correctly. Without plumbing, you’d have no water (hot or cold), no gas to cook with, no flush toilets, no swimming pools, and no air conditioners.
So, what do they do?
The simple answer is this: plumbers plan, install, maintain and repair all the water and gas systems in your house. You may not see all the piping, valves, and fittings that allow these systems to work, but they are there, and they require ongoing maintenance and upkeep. They help with leak detection and repair and keep every running smoothly.

Why can’t I do my own plumbing?
While YouTube may make you believe you can fix anything, there’s a lot more to plumbing than meets the eye. Plumbing is carefully regulated in Australia to keep it safe.
- Never attempt to repair a gas leak by yourself as Natural and LPG gas requires special care and procedures to avoid ignition or explosions.
- Sewage and waste need to be managed carefully to avoid exposure to harmful bacteria and poisonous gases.
- Regulations exist to ensure the water in your hot water tank is at the correct temperature to prevent the growth of dangerous Legionella bacteria.
A licensed plumber in Australia must do all plumbing. Trying to fix an issue yourself, even a job that seems an easy fix could lead to disaster. It could also affect an insurance claim if things go wrong.
