The Plumbette is a blog written by Rebecca Senyard who is one of 29 licensed female plumbers in Queensland, Australia. Her reputation is best known as Brisbane’s Award Winning Plumbette on 96.5FM and was the Dux QLD State Plumbing Apprentice of the year in 2008 and the Dux Australian Plumbing Apprentice of the Year in 2009.
Rebecca started her blog The Plumbette in November 2011 but didn’t officially launch it to the public until February 2012. Readership grows steadily each week as does the interaction through The Plumbette’s social media pages.
Rebecca is a mum to three daughters– a 4year old, 21month old and 4month old. She has been married for over 9 years and is currently on maternity leave.
The Plumbette is a blog that acts as a communication link between consumers and plumbers. The blog focuses on anything to do with plumbing, experiences working in a trade and tips on juggling a small business and family. Because Rebecca is a licensed plumber, her readers take her advice seriously. Rebecca values this loyalty and therefore will only write about products that she uses exclusively and services that she would also use herself and have the same values as her family plumbing business. The Plumbette is open to trial new products but will be under no obligation to review the product. If you have a product that you wish to receive a review on please post to
The Plumbette, P O Box 797, Archerfield QLD 4108
