Plumbing gas fitting and drain unblocking services During COVID-19 Lockdown

Optimum Plumbing Gas and Heating are able to provide ALL essential plumbing, gasfitting and drain unblocking services during the lockdown period – we are emergency plumbers and emergency gasfitters.

What is an Essential Plumbing Service?

During the lockdown period, the Government has set in place strict laws surrounding the definition of essential services. Optimum Plumbing Gas and Heating is able to offer the essential plumbing services but must adhere to these laws.

An essential plumbing, gasfitting or drainlaying service is essential only if it is immediately needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work. The services must:

  1. Be needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work; and
  2. That need must be Immediate.

Examples of essential plumbing services include work relating to:

  • Failed hot water cylinders, because hot water is required for sanitation purposes.
  • Unblocking and repair/replacement of sanitary waste pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
  • Repair/replacement of water pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
  • Repair/replacement of gas piping, fittings and appliance where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.

Examples of work that is NOT considered essential plumbing includes:

  • The repair of minor leaks, tap washers etc.
  • Routine servicing or plumbing renovations.
  • The replacement of plumbing/sanitary fixtures that are currently working.
