About Plumbing

Plumbing contractors own the businesses that employ a wide variety of industry specialists, including apprentices, journeymen, master plumbers, foremen, superintendents, estimators, project managers, and salespeople. In many areas, local plumbing contractors are required to be licensed by governing bodies. Often these licenses require the contractor to pass state or local exams that test his knowledge of plumbing codes, plumbing techniques, and ethical business practices. Each state has its own education and licensing regulations, and within each state, specific local licensing for plumbing contractors may be required. Plumbing contractors are often required to be licensed as journeymen or masters plumber prior to becoming contractors. In addition to licensing requirements, local plumbing contractors are required to obtain permits to perform plumbing work and to arrange for inspections of their work with local plumbing inspectors to ensure that the work has been performed in compliance with applicable local codes. Plumbing contractors may perform work including rough-in installation of water systems in residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional settings starting with underground piping and working through the process to the final installation of plumbing fixtures.

More on Plumbing Contractors

The most important responsibility of a plumber and the local plumbing contractor is ensuring the safety of the potable water supply for its public health benefits. Human bodily functions require potable water for consumption and cleaning, and waste products must be carried away and treated. The potable water supply may be affected by the treatment process at the water source, the water distribution, and sewage/waste system, or the sewage and waste treatment process. Plumbers are generally responsible for the middle category: the water distribution and sewage/waste system. Their role is to keep water safe, easy to use, and free of waste products. Plumbers work to ensure that cross connections, which are connections between the clean water supply and the waste products, do not occur. When cross connections occur, waste products such as e. coli and other dangerous bacteria can enter the potable water supply and endanger public health.
