Tools of the Trade: What are the Characteristics of a Skilled Plumber?

Like any skilled trade, not all plumbers are equally good at their jobs. Some will naturally possess more knowledge than others and when it comes to quality of service, it is critical to know what to look for in such a professional. To take the guesswork out of the process, let us take a look at some of the predominant traits which all reputable plumbers should display.


A reliable plumber is one who can be trusted when his services are needed the most. This is also a very good sign that the company representative takes the task at hand very seriously. Proof of their reliability can normally be found in the testimonials that you should always check before committing to any type of work contract.

Accuracy and Transparency

Plumbers need to be completely transparent with information about the job from the very beginning. Not only does this involve the time frame required with any type of installation or repair, but the overall cost involved as well. In other words, a “rough estimate” hardly counts as being transparent in this competitive industry. Any proposal should be clear from the very start, and it is equally important to explain all applicable terms and conditions. Without this level of clarity, the quality of work comes into question. This will also allow the customer to avoid any unpleasant surprises at the end of the job.

Choosing the best plumbers in the industry is not necessarily “rocket science”. From a minor installation to the complete remodelling of an existing bathroom, you should only rely on reputable plumbers and plumbing companies. These guidelines should help you make the right choice.
