The days of the “handyman” are almost obsolete. In small towns, there was always one guy, usually retired or working at the local hardware store, who could fix just about anything. Basic carpentry, plumbing, and electrical wiring were simpler back then.
Today’s handymen and women have to know more to work with technologically advanced equipment and appliances, so they often choose to specialize in one area of expertise. Plumbing contractors have a diverse range of plumbing services from which to choose, and all of them are important pieces of the plumbing puzzle.
Specialty Work by Specialized Plumbing Contractors
Learn.org has information for students wishing to acquire specialized training and degrees for the following types of plumbing contractors:
- Pipe fitters install and maintain pipe system used in manufacturing or industrial production. They work with low- and high-pressure water heating/cooling systems and are knowledgeable about the automated controls that regulate the systems
- Pipe layers lay the framework for the outside portion of your plumbing system and install the pipes from which to build upon. They may use machinery or dig the trenches themselves. The piping laid can be sewers, drains, or water mains.
- Plumbers work on residential, commercial and industrial projects. They install and maintain water systems, disposal, draining, and gas systems. Other jobs include installing fixtures, showerheads, sinks, bathtub units, dishwashers, and water heaters.
- Sprinkler fitters are highly specialized plumbers who install and maintain fire sprinkler systems for corporate or multi-family buildings as well as manufacturing/industrial plants.
