Essential Services Update
The COVID-19 Alert Level will become Level 4 on Wednesday 25 March at 11:59pm. This means that all businesses will be closed except for essential services and lifeline utilities.
For our industry, essential services means work related to critical infrastructure, or services immediately needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work.
Under this definition we may continue to perform all plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying work that is associated with ensuring that the other essential services and critical infrastructure can keep operating.
A description of what is an essential service can be found on the Covid-19 website at this link: covid19.govt.nz...
For example, we can continue to provide our plumbing services to businesses associated with fast-moving consumer goods, food production or key public services. You can also carry out work associated with health services or emergency services.
We cannot, however, continue to provide services to businesses that do not appear on that list.
Under the definition we may also continue to provide plumbing services if they are immediately needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work.

Under this definition the services must:
1. Be needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work; and 
2. This need must be immediate.
Examples of the type of work that would come under this definition include:
• The repair/replacement of hot water cylinders that have failed, as the hot water will be required for sanitation purposes.
• The unblocking and repair/replacement of sanitary waste pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
• The repair/replacement of water pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
• The repair/replacement of gas piping, fittings and appliances where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
Examples of things that would not be included in that definition are:
• The repair of minor leaks.
• The replacement of tap washers.
• Routine servicing.
• The replacement of sanitary fixtures that are working.
The emphasis is on essential repairs, not those that can wait for another day and pose no immediate threat to health and safety.
The lockdown is designed to increase our nation’s ability to fight and stamp out the COVID-19 virus. It is important that all of us play our part in respecting the lockdown if the disease is to be defeated.

Second hand shops

Rachel from Russley

Not impressed at all with prices at the second hand shops, especially the Salvation Army shops.
Considering most things are donated and a pretty hot water bottle cover is $6!
I can buy a new hot water bottle and cover for $7.
Not impressed at all.
How do people set up a house cheaply if limited to just getting things from second hand shops.
The kitchenware prices are about the same as new items......
