First and foremost with regards to starting a plumbing business you need to identify what your target customer base is. You must understand that although you used to do everything when you worked alone a business can’t function that way. You need to decide on a niche. For an example you can specialize in doing plumbing involving homes such providing grease trap services in Singapore or you could focus on doing sanitary plumbing for large corporate buildings. You should decide on this early on and then hire staff and buy tools which will make doing that specific type of jobs easier. If you do things the other way round you are going to end up in a right royal mess.
