Recommendations for Reliable Tradesman in Canberra

Raiders Plumbing has been working in the Building & Construction Industry providing plumbing in Canberra since 1991. When working in people’s homes, we are often asked for our recommendations regarding other tradesmen. Being Canberra plumbers with 23 years of local knowledge and experience, a network of relationships has evolved around us with other local businesses that we have worked alongside and have come to know and trust. They are reliable tradesmen whom we are happy to give our recommendation to.

Therefore we are happy to introduce you to our list of contacts.

Jobs such as installing a dishwasher or replacing a hot water system can on occasion, require an electrician. For electricians who are reliable tradesmen our recommendations are Chris from Gabler Electrical 0414 862 991 or Jarred from Triple J Electrical 0417 214 309.

Plumbers in Canberra are often confronted with the task of drain dig-up and relocating or rerouting drain lines. Mark from Capital Locating Services 0418482395 is our recommendation for a reliable tradesman, whose job it is to locate and identify trouble spots in your drain line, thereby minimizing costs and/or disturbance to your property.

Larger jobs inside the home such as bathroom or kitchen renovations require good quality plumbing fittings and PC items. We recommend Reece Plumbing and Reece Bathrooms for their vast range of competitively priced products.

If you are looking for a tiler to complete your project we recommend Reece from Elegant Tiling Services 0439 087 302. Reece is a reliable tradesman who delivers quality workmanship on small and large jobs.

Canberra Plumbers performing maintenance often work in the ground, outside your home. As well as drain dig-ups, repairing drain or storm water lines we install garden taps or relocate existing ones. When building or structures such as decks or pergolas have encroached on the work site we highly recommend Rob from Striking Building Services 0417 696 628. Rob is renowned for his precision work, both indoors and out. Rob is a licensed builder so Striking Building Services can also help you with moving doors and walls for your renovation or extension work.

Richard from The Deck Wizard 0415 671 002 also provides quality workmanship, attention to detail and competitive rates. Raiders Plumbing confidently gives its recommendation to these businesses and the skilled, reliable tradesman that operate them.

With more customers interested in saving energy and cutting their energy bills, we know that double glazing a new home or extensions makes a lot of sense. For double glazed windows and doors in Canberra, Karen Porter and David Payne at Solace Creations are the place to go. You can call on 6260 1621.

Finally, if your plumbing woes disturb your garden, we recommend Derek from Utopian Landscaping 0423 814 300.

We trust you will find this list informative. Sourcing a reliable tradesman in Canberra can be more successful when you are able to rely on the endorsements or recommendations of professionals who have worked closely with these businesses. We hope you will be as impressed with their services as we have.

Canberra’s Burst Pipes

The recent record breaking cold snap has resulted in burst pipes all over Canberra and kept our hardworking plumbers busy all week! We have attended many emergencies as people have woken to frozen water pipes resulting in freezing cold showers. Burst pipes result in flooding and a period of time without water to the residence. A significant number of customers required Raiders Plumbing urgent attention to this subsequent plumbing chaos. If you are facing similar issues please contact our plumbers.

Hi Dal and Peter
Just thought I should let you both know what a great job Raiders Plumbing are doing for me and for Qantas.
You guys are my best contractor with performance/service, notifications (keeping me informed on all WO’s) and housekeeping (closing off WO’s and uploading into 360).
I appreciate all of the above. Well done!
Keep it up.

Koundouris Real Estate Pty Ltd have utilised the services of Raiders Plumbing for over ten years for their general plumbing maintenance. We have found the service of Raiders to be reliable, efficient and cost effective.



I cannot speak highly enough of the service you have provided to me, and have recommended Raiders Plumbing to the people at work. You always arrive on time, or earlier and practically run on the job, not walk slowly. I have never been anything but totally happy with your service. You are always obliging – and willing to fit me in at short notice. Peter is courteous and very professional. I cannot fault the service or quality/standard of his work. Peter always gives a clear explanation of the work to be done and the cost involved. He is a pleasure to deal with.


Richard G (Kambah)

I just wanted to pass on my appreciation to you and your staff for the prompt and quality service that you provided recently at my house. While I am still waiting for quotes from other plumbers, your quote was back to me within one day and you were able to do the job with one days notice, something that was extremely handy whilst I was juggling all the other trades installing my kitchen. Also the young bloke that did the work was very helpful and professional.


Lyndsey V (Scullin)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for fixing our drains. Your customer service was excellent – especially returning my calls and chasing me up (usually it’s the other way round!) and being very prompt and flexible with our many requests. In particular, thanks for being so thorough with the quotes and getting the job done so quickly, and leaving the yard and house afterwards looking very tidy. I really appreciate it.


Phil S (Ngunnawal)

Hi – just wanted to pass on thanks for the work Pete and Daniel did today. First time using you guys but will certainly again and happy to recommend you to everyone. They turned up when they said they would, did the work with no fuss and was very professional, quick, neat and fixed it so it works a treat. Well done boys.


Tony C (Dunlop)

After another plumber had failed to turn up (and failed to call to say they would not be coming), and having wasted my wife’s time in the morning and then my time in the afternoon I then contacted Raiders Plumbing. I called Raiders at 3pm on a Tuesday, their phone staff were courteous, knowledgeable and actually took the time to confirm that a plumber could attend. Peter and Daniel turned up on time at 8am the next morning, they were prompt, professional and courteous, they answered my questions honestly when queried. We did not feel we were being pressured to have unnecessary work done and they were able to give a quote on the day for the work proposed. They are by far some of the best trades people that I have come across in Canberra in the 5 years we have been living here and I have no hesitation in using again or in recommending them to friends.


Mat K (Conder)

Dal, Thank you for the prompt and professional service today, I just wanted to e-mail some feedback…
The two guys today, Pete and Daniel were extremely helpful, informative and did a great job.

Blocked Drains – Electric Eel – Drain Jet Cleaner – Drain Camera – Dig-Ups – Mini Excavator

At Raiders Plumbing we realise that a blocked drain is usually an urgent matter and inconvenient enough to ruin anybodies day, therefore we will respond in a timely manner. The most common and effective way to clear a blocked drain is with an electric eel. Blocked drains can present in a variety of ways with a number of consequences. Slow draining sinks, basins or showers? Is your toilet filling up or overflowing, inside or out? Do you have an unpleasant smell or gurgle coming from your household plumbing? These symptoms are all indicative of a blocked drain. Tree roots, sanitary hygiene products, foreign objects or even your toddlers toys could all be to blame. However, if a blockage is to far away or proving to stubborn for the electric eel to clear, our high pressure jet cleaner is often successful in blasting the blockage away. When it is important to identify the cause or location of your drainage problems we can utilise our drain inspection camera in order to visualise the specific cause of the blockage in your drainage system. This can be particularly useful when a dig-up is required. In some circumstances where a drain cannot be cleared, is blocking repetitively or your pipes are damaged, cracked or broken, digging-up a section of your drain and replacing it may be your only option. In this case we have a mini-excavator which can access tight garden spaces while minimising disruption and damage to your landscaping and plants. If a dig-up is required an obligation free quote is given.

Leaking Taps & Toilets

Water is a precious and expensive resource. Do you have a troublesome tap that won’t stop dripping or a toilet that never stops running? Often the solution can be a new tap washer. However if your taps need re-seating or you are looking to update or upgrade your tapware we are happy to guide you through the process. Do you experience difficulty turning taps on and off? Perhaps a mixer tap or quarter turn lever tapware may be the solution you are looking for.

Is your toilet cistern constantly running or filling up in the middle of the night? Unfortunately you are wasting money and water. Toilet cisterns often require a new washer as they are perishable. Likewise the inlet or outlet valve can need replacing. Sometimes the most cost-effective and water wise solution is to replace your old toilet cistern which can be consuming up to 11 litres of water per flush, with a new dual flush cistern which uses less than half that amount.

Hot Water Systems

No hot water? Yet another plumbing emergency which always seems to occur on the coldest Canberra morning or the busiest day of the year.

There are a number of plumbing issues which can affect the operation of your hot water unit. At Raiders Plumbing we are qualified at addressing all of them in a speedy fashion. Whether your problem is an element or thermostat on an electric hot water system, or a thermocouple or uni-control on a gas system we have the expertise and equipment to get you back in hot water as a matter of urgency. We can also supply and install new hot water systems when the inevitable finally happens and your hot water system in no longer repairable (As a guide the life expectancy of a hot water system varies between 10-20 years, although there will always be exceptions) We will advise you on the most cost effective and suitable option for you, your family or your workplace.

Hot Water System Repairs – Relief Valves

People often ask why they have a pipe on the side of their hot water system that doesn’t go anywhere or appear to do anything. In fact this is perhaps one of the most important safety devices in your home. This pipe originates from the temperature and pressure relief valve which releases the pressure building up inside your hot water system as a result of heating water. Your temperature and pressure relief valve is a non-serviceable item. However, as per manufacturers recommendations it should be changed every 5 years in order to prolong the life expectancy of your hot water system. The replacement of your temperature pressure relief valve should only be carried out by a licenced plumber.
Contact Raiders Plumbing Canberra

Thermostatic Mixing / Tempering Valves

These devices are designed to limit the temperature of hot water to personal hygiene fixtures such as your shower, bath and basin as per AS3500 (The Australian Plumbing Code) as well as ACTPLA requirements on new installations. The maximum supply temperature to these fixtures is 50 degrees Celsius. Thermostatic mixing valves require a maintenance/service kit every 12 months. This can only be carried out by a licenced plumber who has undertaken a specific course for this purpose, at Raiders Plumbing, Dal is qualified in this area.

Split Pipes

Split pipes are a common occurrence in Canberra, often as a result of our extremely cold and frosty winter mornings. Split pipes can also occur as a result of improper installation, or the pipe being in contact with an abrasive surface such as a rock/brick or concrete. The consequences of a split pipe are many and varied depending on the location, but wherever that is, remember water damage is usually extensive, especially if it occurs in a wall, a ceiling, under a concrete slab, or even in your garden. At Raiders Plumbing we regard split pipes as an emergency situation and respond accordingly.

Irrigation and sprinkler systems installed in the ACT require separate stopcocks and backflow prevention devices to ensure that there can be no cross contamination from chemicals used to Fertilized or treat grass/lawns for pests. Contrary to popular belief landscapers are not qualified to install these, they must be fitted by a licenced plumber.
