What do Plumbers do

What do plumbers do?

Anyone who has suffered a busted pipe or cracked toilet will tell you that local plumbers are heroes. Plumbers install and repair water supply lines, waste disposal systems, and linked appliances and fixtures to keep homes and businesses flowing without problems.

Being a plumber is physically demanding. Strength, stamina, and an ability to operate in a number of environments are all assets you’ll need before you decide to pick up a pipe wrench. Repairing a faucet in a plush office restroom while smooth jazz wafts over the intercom may sound like a lovely gig, but you may also spend your morning wedged in a frigid crawl space fixing a broken water drainage line. It all needs to get done, and there’s some serious compensation available for the people who are willing (and able) to get it done.

Unless it’s for scheduled maintenance or installation, people that need local plumbers usually need them straight away. The good thing is that urgency makes for great job security; the bad news is you might work more than 40 hours per week and be on call for evenings and weekends. If you want a profession with less potential for late hours, try pipelaying, pipefitting, sprinklerfitting and steamfitting, skilled trades often grouped with plumbing. These jobs will need similar skills, but typically offer more regularly scheduled hours.
