What is a Plumber?

Plumbers install, replace and maintain water and sewage systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. They may also be licensed as gas fitters.

Plumbers will:

  • Read blueprints, drawings, and specifications to determine the layout of plumbing systems, water supply networks, and waste and drainage systems.
  • Install, repair, and maintain domestic, commercial, or industrial plumbing fixtures and systems.
  • Locate and mark postitions for pipe connections, passage holes, and fixtures in walls and floors.
  • Install hot water, steam, and forced air heating systems.
  • Join pipes using couplings, clamps, screws, bolts, cement or soldering, brazing, and welding equipment.
