The Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers
Board (PGDB), which regulates the industry,
is calling on New Zealand homeowners to
ask plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers
for their licence cards to ensure they are
authorised to carry out the work.
PGDB chief executive, Max Pedersen says
it is illegal for anyone to do plumbing,
gasfitting and drainlaying unless they
are authorised to do so by the Board.
From the 1st of April each year, plumbers,
gasfitters and drainlayers must relicence

“We’re reminding homeowners not to risk
their family’s health and safety or their
insurance over the holiday season by hiring
unauthorised tradespeople to undertake
work,” he says.
“Unlicensed plumbers, gasfitters and
drainlayers potentially place consumers
in harm’s way with their poor skills.
New Zealanders have the right to have
confidence that any plumbing, gasfitting or
drainlaying service provided to them is safe
Anyone carrying out plumbing, gasfitting
and drainlaying must be able to produce
their licence card if asked.
“This provides consumers with an assurance
that the work is being legally carried out by
an authorised and competent tradesperson,
who is currently licensed by the PGDB,”
Consumers can also check to see if a
plumber, gasfitter or tradesperson is
authorised to carry out the work by logging
onto the PGDB’s website at www.pgdb.co.nz
If you believe work has been done by
someone who is not authorised, or you

Wouldn’t it be great to think there was a
plumber around who was available when
it suited you?
the good old days when you needed a
plumber you called him –usually at home
after hours because that’s the time that best
suited YOU – and arranged a time for him to
come and fix your problem.
Cellphones had not been invented so when
he was on your job his attention was not being
constantly pulled in several directions by the
“urgent” needs of others.
The team at Te Anau Plumbing all carry
cellphones but they won’t answer them while
they’re working for you – that just wouldn’t
be fair. So if your call to Te Anau Plumbing is
answered with a recorded message you’ll know
why. Leave a message and they’ll get back to
you as soon as they’re free – day or night, seven
days a week – when you can be assured of their

too well that the summer holiday season is the
time when home owners – and especially holiday

they’re busy at work. That’s why they’ll be on call
throughout the holiday period – able to assist
with all your plumbing jobs, big or small.
Te Anau Plumbing is always just a phone call
away.... but don’t be afraid to leave a message!
