Plumbing compliance certificate validity
How long is a plumbing compliance certificate valid for? A plumbing compliance certificate is legally valid for 6 months. However, this is provided there has not been any modifications, alterations or upgrades of any shape or form of the original plumbing installation or since the last plumbing certificate of compliance was issued.
This limitation is in line with the regulation set by the City of Cape Town. If any alterations, modifications or upgrades of any nature has been done to plumbing installation, a second plumbing compliance inspection needs to be carried out to ensure the modifications, additions or alterations are in line with plumbing regulations.
If compliance issues are detected in the inspection, we will send an inspection report with a quote to have the above rectified. Only once this has been completed and the plumbing installation brought back in line with regulations, can we then safely sign off that plumbing repairs and issue a new plumbing compliance certificate.
What is a plumbing certification?
Simple answer: A plumbing certification and a plumbing compliance certificate are two separate things. Plumber certificate programs prepare students to work in residential, commercial, and industrial situations. Students explore plumbing theories, system layouts, and tools of the trade. They also learn safety procedures, pipe identification, and trade terminology. This is a plumbing certification program.
Plumbing compliance certificates are what is issued by a qualified plumber to a property owner after their plumbing installation has been inspected and passed. This is also commonly known or referred to as a plumbing CoC (certificate of compliance)
Ever so often we receive email requests from students inquiring how much it costs for a plumbing certificate. We as a compliance inspection company do not offer students training or courses of this nature. We are strictly a property compliance inspection and repairs company. We do not sell certificates to students or anyone for that matter. All our staff are fully qualified and highly experienced in their fields.
How much is a plumbing compliance certificate?
simple answer: We charge R450/inspection. If the plumbing installation passes the inspection, we do not charge extra for the certificate. You are paying for 1 hours labor and expertise of a fully qualified professional.
We don’t sell certificates, that is issued free of charge. Your R450 includes the inspection, technical fault report as well as the quote for repairs to bring the faulty plumbing installation back online with the regulations of SANS 10252 and SANS 10254.
Often we run specials where we do all 3 inspections (electrical + plumbing + beetle) for R1000. Sometimes we offer all 3 compliance inspections for the price of 2. Winter and Spring specials run every year when the property market takes a bit of a dip in Cape Town. So you’ll do well to inquire about any specials currently running when you book your appointment. Selling a property can be a very costly exercise so we try our best to soften the blow and cut you some slack wherever we can.
WARNING: If you ever come across an individual that charges for the inspection and then charges extra for a the clearance certificate as well, be aware. There are many of these kinds of unqualified “Bakkie tradesman” who carry out work and pose as professional plumbers and electricians without the relevant qualifications. This should raise red flags and probably means he is piggy-backing off another qualified plumber/electrician by getting them to sign-off certificates on their behalf. Be warned! This practice is illegal and if things do go wrong you’re in for rough ride as most times these guys just vanish into thin air leaving you with a massive mess to clean up. Often costing unsuspecting property owners additional repair bills running into the thousands.
What is a certified plumber?
Simple answer: A certified plumber is a person who has studied a plumbing trade at a reputable institution and has written and passed the Plumbing traded test. He is well versed with the SANS 10252 and 10254 regulations.
A certified plumber is also registered with the plumbing board and holds a valid unique plumbing registration number which he puts on the plumbing compliance certificate.
