What will plumbing teach you?

As a plumber, you're a skilled trade worker who installs and repairs plumbing and piping systems in residential and commercial properties. You also install fixtures such as sinks, toilets and showers, or appliances such as dishwashers and water heaters. You may manage gas, drainage and waste disposal systems. The sequence of duties you perform during a new installation includes studying building plans and inspecting building interiors; determining material requirements, pipe locations and alternative routing options to avoid obstructions; measuring, cutting and threading pipe; assembling pipe sections; and attaching valves, fixtures and appliances
