Often we are asked what clients should look for when looking to retain a plumbing professional. Just like professional physicians are members of the American Medical Association and attorneys are members of the California State Bar, all professional plumbing firms are members of the Plumbing, Heating Cooling Contractors Association.
A California State issued contractors license unfortunately is no more evidence of competency, ethics and expertise anymore than possession of a California drivers license is a guarantee a person is a good driver. To get a government license, applicants memorize answers to test questions that usually have utterly no bearing on the real world of service and repair plumbing, and they bewilderingly are not required to engage in ongoing education and training to stay competent.
Dave Bischof himself conducts and speaks at these ongoing education and training workshops for the PHCC and other professional contracting organizations. He was only the second person to ever be elected by the members to sit on a second term as President of the PHCC Los Angeles Chapter, having served on the PHCC Board for 7 years.
For your protection and peace of mind, always verify that your plumbing professional is a member in good standing with this professional society. Next look for the credentials of a plumbing firm. If they have any at all, compare them to Dave Bischof credentials.
All services we provide where applicable are performed in compliance with the Uniform Plumbing Code. Dave Bischof is an expert in the Uniform Plumbing Code, having been appointed by then Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan to serve on the City of Los Angeles Technical Plumbing Advisory Board, where he advised the City on what the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety’s interpretation of the Uniform Plumbing Code should be. Dave Bischof has also been a member of the International Code Council which writes the building code models.
Your technician was outstanding! He was prompt, paid attention to his work-knew what he was doing and it showed.
