Do you know if your plumber is certified for working on gas plumbing? Should it matter? We'd be concerned if anyone were to consider this a trivial matter – of course you should always have a certified specialist to work on your gas fitting! Be it for installing or decommissioning gas appliances, there's simply no telling how much worse a situation can get if a gas fitting job were handled unprofessionally. Thankfully, most commercial plumbing services do take the effort to provide certified and specialist gas plumbing talent, when it comes to supporting their clients' needs for facility maintenance. However, we also understand that it may seem reasonable to go 'off book' when hiring a freelancer or temporary contractor to work on any ad-hoc jobs.
These can include some gas fitting related jobs, such as:
However, there's simply no point risking a mishap when it comes to finding a certified professional to help you in any of these scenarios. It simply does not pay to have these crucial and potentially hazardous components of your facility botched up. Work with a plumber who details this up-front. Like our team at Tait Plumbing, most certified gas plumbers will communicate this in a crystal clear way, whether they are able to provide certified gas fitting services, or not.
But Don't All Pipes Work the Same Way?
This is of course, an easy misconception to prove. Especially with how tampering with the wrong pipe could cause serious damage and harm to your premises, and those in it! The good news is that plenty of full-service and commercial plumbers make it a point to provide certified gas fitting services. But you should always be doubly sure about their ability to provide such a service, and not assume that they would be naturally able to help because 'a pipe is just a pipe'.
Interestingly also, is the distinction between a gas fitter, and a gas plumber. While it may seem awfully particular - it might help you to understand that a gas fitter is able to help with any installation and removal or gas appliances such as stoves and BBQs. However, only a gas plumber is able to help you out if your facility faces any need for gas piper repairs and maintenance.
