The Free Flow Story

A brief history of Free Flow Plumbing from owner Brett Scarborough.

I started my plumbing apprenticeship in 1988, working for one of Adelaide’s leading companies at the time, Percy Priest & Son, and was the first person in South Australia to complete my Master Plumbers Certificate before I completed my apprenticeship. I was Awarded the plumbing industry's “Most Proficient – Best Overall” apprentice of the year in 1992.

I worked at Percy Priest & Son for 5 years and travelled Australia for 2 years, working in maintenance at resorts around the country. Back in Adelaide in 1996, I set up my own business, Free Flow Plumbing. Established in May 1996, I worked for 2 years on my own, then travelled overseas for 2 years while working in London, UK, on high-rise stock brokerage refits. I returned to Australia in June 2000 where I began to expand Free Flow Plumbing, taking on my first apprentice in 2001.

Tickets held: Gas Fitters Licence, Plumbers Licence, B Class Electrical Licence, and Builders Licence.

We have used Free Flow Plumbing for many years on our rental properties. The Brett and the team at Free Flow Plumbing are always prompt and courteous. Once notified of a job, they work in closely with our tenants so as to schedule the work when it best suits their needs. They not only do the plumbing work requested but also provide written feed back on the work undertaken plus identify other items that may require future attention. They are a reliable plumbing team and they also can provide a single point of contact for other building maintenance works such as carpentry, earth works, electrical, roofing, tiling, retaining walls concreting, gas fitting, painting, roof cleaning etc that we have used many times. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other clients for a hassle free one stop shop to provide a total solution to your maintenance needs at an affordable price.
