A plumber is much more than unclogging pipes and drains. As a plumber, you will install, repair, and maintain entire piping systems and fixtures for water distribution, drainage, and waste disposal. You connect any appliance that uses water, whether it’s for a domestic or industrial purpose.​

To make pipe connections throughout a building, you will cut openings in walls and floors; use hand and power tools to measure, cut, bend, and install pipes; and join pipes with clamps, screws, bolts, or cement. You also get to weld. ​
