Can I Install My Own Water Heater?
Home DIY is a fantastic hobby that can save you money in the long run. However, as much of a rush as it is to perform repairs, installations, and upkeep on your own, there are some things you're legally not able to do. Thankfully, if you're looking to install a new water heater in your home and you need advice on whether or you can do it yourself, Aptus Plumbing & Gas can help. If you have an enquiry related to plumbing in Brisbane Northside, you can call us on (07) 3205 1991.
Installing your own water heater without the proper qualifications is illegal. Quite simply, you will need to contact a plumber about installing any water heater within your home. Fortunately, that doesn't mean the process needs to be painful. As the work is classified as 'notifiable work' in QLD, there is no need for a plumber to seek out a local government permit before the job begins or undergo a mandatory government inspection once it's finished, which means you're able to coordinate with your plumber to create a schedule that suits your needs. Unfortunately, due to the complicated nature of the work, installing your own water heater in your home is illegal and you should instead reach out to a qualified plumber.
