Choosing the wrong plumber could be disastrous. Simply hiring the first plumbing company that pops up on your internet search is not good enough.

Choosing a professional plumbing company in Cape Town is important as having the wrong plumber working on your plumbing system could be an expensive and harrowing experience.

Good Reputation

Before deciding on a plumber for the job, check out their social media. In this day and age, most professional plumbing companies should have a strong, informative website and social media presence. This makes it super easy to read references on the jobs they have done.

Some of the things that you should be keeping an eye out for are comments on their professionalism and punctuality. Professional plumbing companies should not keep you waiting or leave you wondering when they will be arriving. 

Professional plumbing companies should be able to quote you pretty accurately. They should also keep you in the loop if they discover other problems and how much it will cost to fix them before you get whacked with a massive bill!


Plumbers should be fully equipped with all necessary tools and most importantly, the knowledge in order to do the work they were called out for. This will not only save you time but also money.


They respond to queries in a timely manner – A plumbing company that responds to queries immediately is normally an indication that they are serious about their work that they do. It is also an indication that they make customer service a priority. Nothing can tick a client off like a company that is not responding to the issue that was raised with them.

Proven Track Record

Find out how long the plumbing company has been around. The longer they have been around, the more experience they will have, it’s a no-brainer! Professionalism and a good work ethic usually contribute to the longevity of a business.


They get to their appointment at the time that was arranged – In today’s fast paced world, being on time is very important as we all have appointments to keep. Arriving late for one can throw a client’s day out completely, meaning the client will either drop the plumbing company or in very rare cases, move the appointment.
