If you think that being a plumber is just about fixing leaking taps and burst pipes, then you’re wrong. Plumbing is about technical expertise, it’s about working in a team, it’s about being sensitive to client needs and being passionate about client service. If we didn’t have to tell you all that, then perhaps being a plumber is your purpose in life!
One of the greatest advantages of being a plumber is that each day is likely to present a new challenge to face and a new problem to solve. While some plumbing problems are more common than others, those who work in the industry tend to find that they never stop learning, and that there is always room for skills development.
A few things remain common for all plumbers, though:
When it comes to the technical side of things, certain skills are a must. While the practical duties of plumbers involve interpreting building plans and water supply layouts, installing pipes and fixtures, choosing and using the correct plumbing tools, identifying leaks and performing routine tests, and estimating the time and cost of a job, there are a number of specific skills without which these practical responsibilities cannot be carried out. Good problem-solving and analytical skills, decisiveness, time and stress management, physical stamina, interpersonal skills, and being willing to collaborate and work in a team are all vital skills to have. While these attributes can be developed through experience, the potential must be there when you start out.
