What happens if someone needs a plumber?

Post by galexinda » Fri Mar 27, 2020 9:54 am

I don't need a plumber, but in an emergency what is the procedure to find someone to come to the house?

I do mean an emergency situation eg fix a burst pipe

Should not be a problem. I received an email late last night from a UK neighbour to say that workmen would be coming to fix a problem on his house today. The workmen (no more than two) simply need to have the government form filled in by their employer, carry ID and ideally wear gloves and mask. The form will state the destination and travelling times.

Plumbers are allowed to work in case of emergency only.

Thank you for the information which is handy if anything happens on our complex.

The communal pool was cleaned by a professional pool company this morning and I consider that an essential service.

However, is there a directive regarding the garden which is tidied up once a month by an outside contractor?

Our tenants had a broken/leaking solar panel.
The plumber came with the police, so I'm told, and gave the various permissions.

The rest of this conversation ended up in the Pit. It wasn't a "pit" issue, but it got in the way of this information.
