Because near enough is not good enough

Water ‘sticks’ to itself (cohesion), it sticks to other things (adhesion), and it can even defy gravity (capillary action).

When you’re dealing with water, there are a lot of amazing properties of which you need to be mindful – it can even defy gravity. It can also exist in three states – liquid, solid, and gas – with unusual ease under even natural conditions, and each of these states requires different management strategies (because, for example, freeze-ruptured pipes are no fun for anyone). Also, it’s for very good reason that water is known as “the universal solvent”, and if it’s not managed properly, it can even start to dissolve the value of your fixed assets – really quickly, or over time.

Of course, plumbing’s not just all about water, but the “it’s better to do it right first time” principle applies across the board – for example, sewerage and gas aren’t substances you want to treat in a “she’ll be right” manner either.

Whether we’re working in a family bathroom or on an airport, a granny flat or an aged care facility, we know how important it is – and how much more simple it is – to get it right first time. We take pride in our work, and even though our customers probably don’t get as excited as we do about something like a beautifully executed set of pipe joints, that’s where our satisfaction comes from: getting it right first time. We like to call it the art of flow.
