    Plumbing doesn't meet Sydney Water requirements

    Fair Trading said I need to get it inspected though their licensed plumbers. I cant do it, as I am not the owner. Strata doesn’t know anything about this. Looks like current owners are not aware of this. There are around 30 units which are not compliant. Dont see how this can happen in Sydney!
