In many cases, work on new and existing plumbing systems, and some types of water installations, needs to be notified to, and approved by, your local water supplier before it can begin.
It’s a legal duty for owners and occupiers of premises to ensure that any significant plumbing work complies with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and Scottish Water Byelaws.
WaterSafe plumbers can carry out some work without the need to provide this advance notification and they will also provide a certificate on completion. That is why we recommend you always use a WaterSafe plumber to ensure you don’t fall foul of the law.
