Owner /Operator, Dal Hrstic.
Dal was born and educated in Canberra. He grew up in Woden Valley and has spent his adult years in Tuggeranong. He graduated from Year 12, Marist College Pearce in 1985 and commenced his Plumbing Apprenticeship with Waterman Plumbing, Curtin in 1987.
After a brief stint with Canberra Plumbing, based in Fyshwick, he graduated from CIT with distinctions in the trades of Plumbing, Drainage and Gasfitting.
After obtaining his trade qualifications Dal identified a need in the expanding Canberra community for a plumbing business which could deliver a quality, reliable service bringing innovative and specialised solutions to plumbing and drainage maintenance.
His business ethos has been to maintain his independence in this industry while others have been monopolised by large corporations and interstate takeovers. When you phone or employ Raiders Plumbing, we guarantee you are dealing with Raiders Plumbing, exclusively.
Dal has seen the Canberra plumbing industry evolve greatly over the last 20 years, but remains at the cutting edge of his industry, thriving and succeeding in its highly competitive environment. He is a genuine local plumber familiar with your city and its relevant maintenance issues and regulations. Dal is passionate about his work and business, paying great attention to detail and ensuring he leaves every job with a happy customer.
Your word of mouth is of paramount importance to us. It is sincerely the greatest form of advertising.
Dal has resolved to be an independently owned and operated business in Canberra because he enjoys meeting his customers and establishing a strong working relationship with them. His goal has always been to meet and surpass his client’s expectations with his plumbing expertise and professionalism
