Love entertaining guests at home? Creating a beautiful space for your guests to unwind and relax is key to a fantastic get-together. If you plan to embark on a renovation escapade to make the most of your entertainment space, it is important to assess if you require any plumbing to be done and to consult with a PIRB registered plumber.

Maybe you are considering adding a soothing water feature to set the mood for an evening of great socialising. Or maybe you would like to add a home bar and you need to add a sink and a small geyser.

The starting point for any renovation is to employ the services of a Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) registered plumber to ensure that your renovation journey does not turn out into a plumbing nightmare.

Using a registered plumber will save you time, money and frustration at the end of the day.

Who is the Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB)?

PIRB is an esteemed professional body governing the plumbing industry and maintaining an up-to-date plumbing registration system in South Africa. They are recognised by the South African Qualifications Authority and supervise the competency level of the plumbing industry.

PIRB encourages advanced plumbing practices that protect the environment and the health and safety of consumers. They further ensure the application and enforcement of South African National Standards and Codes of Practice.

PIRB licensed plumbers are required to issue a PIRB Certificate of Compliance (CoC) on all their plumbing works done. In terms of the Water Services Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as the National Building Regulations, it is a legal requirement for PIRB registered plumbers to issue a PIRB Certificate of Compliance on any plumbing work done on a geyser, solar water heater or a heat pump.

PIRB further serves as a live and updated register for all registered plumbers ensuring that you can verify whether your plumber is qualified. PIRB also conducts random checks on plumbing jobs carried out by its members ensuring that the required standards are maintained and thus protecting the integrity of the industry.

In the unlikely event that you fall victim to shoddy plumbing work carried out by a PIRB registered plumber, you can raise complaints to PIRB. This keeps the industry in check. So, ensuring you use one of PIRB’s registered plumbers for your entertainment area will ensure your project starts off on the right foot.
