    The maintenance and upkeep of a geyser in a unit in a sectional title scheme, such as Castleton, is the responsibility of the owner of the unit, as stipulated in the Sectional Titles Act (Act Number 95 of 1986 of The Republic of South Africa).
    Each owner of a unit in a sectional title scheme must ensure that the installation of the geyser in their unit complies with the specifications laid down by the Institute of Plumbing SA (IOPSA), that are set out in the link that is attached to this communication. It is recommended that each owner have the geyser in their unit checked by a professional plumber, registered with IOPSA and that any deficiency/deficiencies be rectified. Plumbers in Plettenberg Bay, that owners may wish to contact, are listed at the end of this circular. A plumbing certificate of compliance for a geyser, that meets all the necessary specifications, can be obtained from the Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) of South Africa, a body registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). Thereafter, a copy of the certificate of compliance should be lodged with the company that provides insurance for the buildings of Castleton Body Corporate, Bryte Insurance.
