What to know about commercial plumbing. Commercial vs residential plumbing. Why they’re different and why it’s important to know the differences.
There are certain codes to honour, memorise and apply when doing commercial plumbing. All commercial plumbing needs to meet government plumbing requirements.
There are specialities that require commercial experience that generally won’t be see in residential plumbing.
A lot of commercial jobs are repetitive considering a commercial job requires a standard code. Where residential work is generally week days 9-5, commercial jobs can carried out at any given day or hour, especially when the space is not being used to conduct business as usual There are strict job requirements for commercial plumbers. They are on tight, stringent schedules due to the building and/or business having to operate and therefore when a time frame is set, they have to make it within that time. This is not to say overtime is unheard of- if the job is not complete within the time frame, a commercial plumber will have to work overtime to see that the job is done. A lot of plumbers are perfectly capable of doing both commercial and residential. The training required to be a journeyman and the apprenticeship journey to get there require the knowledge and practical experience of both residential and commercial plumbing.
Scott has completed a quite a few jobs for us over the last couple of years. He clearly knows what he’s doing, explains it well and nothing ever seems to much trouble. He’s always on time, even came out at super short notice on a weekend once to stop our newly laid turf being torn up by a burst pipe. This week it was moving pipes, again at short notice, so a new fence could go in. We wouldn’t use anyone else.
It's hard when our drain is blocked during lockdown ??.. Found Modern Era plumbing online.. and rang him this morning.. Scott came few hours later to rescue us.. Thank you Scott for the best service everyone could ask for.. you are so professional, attention to details and polite.. 100% recommended his service.. 10 of 10.. best service ever..

I highly recommend using Modern Era Plumbing & Gas Solutions, we had a deep fryer that caught on fire which needed to be replaced urgently so trade was not affected. Scott made us a priority, installed promptly & professionally and we were not affected at all for our Schnitzel Night. Thank you Modern Era Plumbing & Gas Solutions.
So grateful for the extremely prompt and friendly service, not to mention the reasonable rates. Happy to support a small, local business too.
I used Modern Era to replace my hot water system in July 2020. The service was prompt and friendly and better value than the other big plumbing companies who quoted for this job. I was especially impressed by the way the plumber fit this job in as a priority - same day service - and the great workmanship which made me sure I'd gone with the right company.
Friendly professional service that I will be recommending to my family and friends. Thanks again Scott.
Excellent work in a timely fashion! I would highly recommended Modern Era.
