What Is a Plumber?

A plumber is someone who has been trained to repair and install water pipes and fixtures in new and existing buildings. They are equipped to perform any duties related to fixing garbage disposals, toilets, shower and sink drains, and even in some cases, sewage lines.

Plumbers must be able to identify and resolve a variety of issues, as well as have the stamina to perform often challenging physical labor.

While plumbers do perform routine maintenance as a part of their work, they are often needed urgently in emergency situations like a leaking or burst pipe. For this reason, good plumbers are generally in demand and enjoy some job security. The nature of their work means they are often up at odd hours or performing duties over weekends and holidays.

How to Become a Plumber?

Education in the plumbing trade can come traditionally from trade schools or on the job apprenticeship training. Apprenticeships can last up to five years, and are completed when the new plumber passes a test that proves their knowledge on building codes, piping systems, and local regulations. In light of recent 'green' initiatives, most plumbers are also expected to be familiar water savings techniques.

How Much Does a Plumber Make?

According to Payscale 1 , plumbers make a median salary of $52,690 a year.
