Getting your Wellington pipework plans drawn up? Here’s what you need to know…

All sanitary plumbing must comply with the Building Code and, where a building consent is required; the work must be checked by the building inspector from the building control authority in your area (your local council). A code compliance certificate cannot be issued until the work has been signed off by the building inspector.

Who handles your Wellington sanitary plumbing system?

A certifying plumber (such as any member of the team at Pipespec) is responsible for the testing, verification and the supervision of licensed plumbers, limited certificate (trainee plumbers) and exempted persons.

Sanitary plumbing does not include the installation of appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines; the replacement or repair of taps, ball valves and plugs.
