Are you kidding me, The City of Utica is blocking ompetition to the residents of Utica. Let them have thier Plumbing License for Christ sake. Thats why this City is dying a slow painful death. All we do is recycle the same, lame tired polititions that protect there owe turf. Shameful. God forbid that the City try something new. What harm can a residential Plumber do except leave some money in your wallet

Its a test to prove people know what their doing.

You take a test and get a license, lets get you a doctor who has no license. Cheap medical care, RIGHT.

GOOF.

These are two separate issues although they impact one another.

The city limits the amount of licenses they allow for plumbers & electricians. This inflates the cost of legally hiring these professionals. In response to this, and the other problems of limited supply, the city is offering to allow homeowners to do some basic work if they pass a test. It's a compromise.

In my opinion, the city should allow unlimited licenses for qualified professionals instead of this stopgap measure.

If you know what your doing do it yourself. No one will ever know. There are also a lot of guys out there on Craigslist, od, penny saver that will do the work cheap. However there are certain things I would want a licensed electrician or plumber for.

just had a new sump pump installed in my basement. also had a separate water fed backup sump pump intalled. the water fed back up sump pump cost of pump and installation 890.00 the sump pump was a additional 350.00 intalled. am happy with both by a licensed plumber and had to have the water fed back up pump checked by the city where I live to make sure it was correctly installed actually it was the water company where I live that checked it for correct installation that cost 30.00 for the permit. it was all fine and I am at ease knowing if my sump pump fails because of power failure the water fed backup pump will kick on presto no flooded basement.

News flash, A license doesnt mean you are an expert. A license means you met a bare, minimum standard and recieved apiece of paper. If you queston that, think of all the teenage drivers on the highway. I had alicense plumber work in my rental and his workmanship was so horrible, I had to have a buddy re ro it. By the way at half the cost.

Maybe you should look into the licensing requirements. To be a master plumber you need to know more than the bare requirements. However there are guys out there that go under plumbers licensees and say they are licensed.
