About Sunshine Plumbing

About us

Sunshine Plumbing is a family owned and operated plumbing business that services homes and businesses of all types around Sunshine and surrounding areas.

“We provide top quality plumbing for homeowners and businesses, to ensure their plumbing repair or installation is completed on time, on budget, safely and with great communication.”

Mark Muir, Owner.

Like you, we’ve experienced tradespeople who: show up late, or not at all; who will spring a surprise cost on you; or, do poor quality work. We understand how upsetting this can be.

With 50 years of experience under our belt, it’s our mission to provide a plumbing service with great communication, to be up front about costs and to do top quality work.

Sunshine Plumbing is unique

  • We’re family owned, so word of mouth and the quality of our work are the foundation of our business so you get great service.
  • We offer 24/7 personal service – no answering or paging services so you can always reach a human for support.
  • We personally answer each call so you get the advice and information you need.
  • We look after you from the first call, to the completion of your job. You’re never left wondering what’s going on.
  • We make sure you know when we’ll be there, so you’re not left waiting unnecessarily.


If you’re wondering about our qualifications, Sunshine Plumbing is a member of the Master Plumbers and Mechanical Services Association of Australia.  We’re committed to the ongoing training of our team so we can provide you with the best service.

All service people hold Occupational Health and Safety Red/White cards as per national requirements for working in the Construction Industry. Our plumbers are qualified/registered and all have Working with Children’s checks and National Police checks.

Our people

It’s nice to know a little bit about the people you’re letting in to your home and business, so we’d like to introduce our most important resource, our staff: 

Mark MuirManaging Director, Mines Manager, Estimator, Licenced Plumber

With 35 years of experience of plumbing under his belt, Mark is our problem solver and estimator.  If you think something can’t be done; think again – creative solutions are his expertise. Commercial, Industrial or Domestic plumbing, Mark loves the challenge of achieving a solution to meet your budget or requirements.

When he’s not problem solving, he can be found dirt bike riding in the bush conquering large logs with a single jump. He can also be found talking about plumbing (or motorbikes) anywhere, anytime, to anyone who will listen.

Catrina Muir: Office Manager, Customer Service, First Aider, HR Officer, general dogs body; Advanced Diploma in Business Administration

Cat has been managing the Sunshine Plumbing office for 25 years. When she’s not scheduling the plumbers jobs and keeping everyone in line, she can be found conquering marathons, running trails and walking Trixie, the wonder dog.

Kathy NankervisPart Time Office Administrator, Customer Service

Kathy has been ensuring the supplies arrive on time for 16 years now and when she’s not placing orders or answering your calls she can be found honing her quilting and knitting skills.

John NikoraRegistered Plumber

Johnny joined the Sunshine Plumbing family 7 years ago.  Originally hailing from across the ditch Johnny is our international plumber. Having 33 years’ industry experience Johnny is well equipped in a wide variety of domestic and industrial maintenance and new installation plumbing applications.

His favourite plumbing jobs are ones where he gets to interact with our customers, learning about their lives while he’s solving a problem for them.

When he’s not unblocking a drain or fixing a burst pipe in a Nursing Home or a residential property, Johnny can be found spending time with his family, playing guitar in the band and walking the most recent addition to his family: Snowy (the wonder dog II).

James Allen: Registered Plumber

After joining us for a couple of years in the early 90’s, James packed up his family leaving our family for the west coast of Australia circa 1995.  Fast forward 20 years he finally decided the weather really was better in Melbourne and has returned to us.

With 35 years of industry experience James is prepared to tackle any domestic or industrial maintenance plumbing issue sent his way.

When not tracking down the source of a leak James can be found on your TV (Million Dollar Minute; The Chase) and trying his luck at the local club quiz or raffle nights and most recently welcomed his second child into the world.

Mase Sullivan: Apprentice

After becoming skilled at the art of professional painting, achieving Master Painter status and running his own business, Mase has embarked upon a mature aged plumbing apprentice with us. N

ow into his second year, he keeps everyone on their toes asking all the nitty gritty questions of how and why. Mase is a fast learner and always considerate of others.

When he’s not plumbing (or doing the odd painting job), he can be found restoring furniture, planting out the garden or enjoying a camping adventure.
