    Default A person claims to be a plumber

    What test question can I ask such that only a plumber would know the answer?

    What is his License # and name, then call the state to verify. If he gave you false info then report to the state while you have them on the line.

    Agreed: No License - No workie ;-)

    The most important thing when hiring a plumber is to make sure they have an active, clean license

    Worse part is when you think they aren't (licensed) by the workmanship and they are. What I am learning is that licensed doesn't necessarily mean competent.

    The reason I ask, two guys are remodelling a bathroom and they were said to be plumbers. When they removed the toilet they left the pipe unplugged, which should put sewer gas into the house.
    Would a plumber make a mistake like that?
    Would two plumbers be remodelling a bathroom instead of focusing on only plumbing work?
