Hiring a Licensed Plumber

Why You Must Hire a Plumber for Your Texas Home before This Terrible Plumbing Law is Implemented

If you reside in Texas and don’t have a regular plumbing technician or company at your disposal before the 1st of September, well…you’re in for a tough time when you choose to find one.

This is because a new law will finally take effect on the said date.  According to CBS Local, legislators in the state of Texas passed a bill that completely dissolves The Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners.

A handyman is not a plumber

The body that licenses and regulates plumbers in the state of Texas will no longer be allowed to carry out their functions. This is certain to lead to a huge spike in the number of unqualified plumbers in the state.

Since anyone will basically be able to call him or herself a plumber, the quality of plumbing services that will be provided to customers is guaranteed to crash. With this in mind, hiring a plumber now is the smartest move you can make if you wish to avoid the ensuing chaos.

Though, it must be acknowledged that the plumbing agency does have its shortcomings like the long wait of prospective plumbers looking to take their licensing exams. This is, however, not enough reason to completely liquidate the regulatory body.

Elizabeth Byrne of The Texas Tribune believes that a more wholesome approach should have been taken. Slashing the waiting period for a plumbing license is an obvious solution while making the strict regulatory laws a little lax is another. A complete elimination of licensing and regulation is, however, incredibly naïve.

Already licensed plumbers within the state feel let down by this development as seen in this news article published by KVUE. Their disdain sterns from the fact that anybody with a spanner and screw driver can now claim to be a plumber, thus, causing an oversaturation of plumbers in the state.

With many of the existing plumbers having gone through very rigorous training processes as well as licensing exams, it is simply unfair that new plumbers can easily enter the market without any sort of assessment done on them.

What This Means for the Plumbing Trade in Texas

If you’re a resident of Texas who doesn’t have a licensed plumber on “speed dial”, finding someone qualified just became harder as there is no longer a need for plumbers to prove that they are licensed.

According to this report, as soon as the abolishment of the plumbing regulatory board becomes official, all licenses will cease to be valid and every prospective plumbing technician will be free to begin providing services to the residents of Texas.
