Did you know that plumbers protect the health of our nation and conserve our natural resources? Plumbers install piping systems that carry liquids, gasses and waste for residential, commercial and industrial operations. Plumbers also install fixtures such as sinks, toilets, water heaters, drinking fountains, bathtubs and showers in homes, businesses, schools and hospitals among other places.

Like most trades, plumbers may work in the extreme heat of summer and harsh cold of winter. Ladders and lifts are used to work in elevated or confined spaces.
