An apprenticeship is the most common pathway to becoming a plumber. Many unions and businesses mandate that an apprentice receive a minimum of 246 hours of technical education, which could include instruction in math, applied physics and chemistry, and up to 2,000 hours of paid, practical training working with an experienced plumber. Safety training is also an important component of the process, since injuries are common in this line of work. "We have many hours worth of [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] training before we go on to a job site," says Patrick Kellett, the administrative assistant to the general president for the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing, Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States, Canada and Australia. "We're very conscious of the dangers that come with working in construction." https://youtube.com/v/hokTzqWiBMQ

My father Butch (August senior) started this company with his mother and father in the late 60's, obtained his license in this mid 70's and for nearly 50 years A&A Plumbing and Rooter has been a trusted provider of plumbing services for the Inland Valley. Providing full service plumbing for all your plumbing and septic tank system needs.  I August Jr. took over the company in the early 2000's after obtaining a business degree and have been running it ever since specializing in sewer, water, gas and septic systems.
Found myself in a bind on a Friday morning due to a gas pipe leak from Gas meter. Gas had been shut off by SC Gas Co. I needed a very quick repair. I had to leave town for a wedding that afternoon, very stressful. I couldn't leave my kids with no hot water, stove, heat, ect..   Called A&A spoke to August explained the situation, He was very helpful and professional, came out promptly within 2 hours and resolved the whole problem at a good price. I made my trip on time and enjoyed my weekend with peace of mind, that was (priceless) He also checked and diagnosed a water pressure problem at no cost. I am a Fan and will use A & A In the future. http://youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hokTzqWiBMQ
Our water heater had stopped heating. I gave A&A a call and although they could not take the call that day August was nice enough to suggest what the issue could be. Given this I took it upon myself to remedy the problem. I therefore replaced the Pilot assembly but somehow this did not resolve the issue. I then informed A&A I still had an issue and scheduled a new appointment. To my chagrin, no one showed up at the appointed time. However, the next morning August called to see if I had resolved the issue, apologize for missing his appointment and offer assistance. However, prior to his call I made another appointment with another plumber but he did not show either. I called August back and he came right away. Turns out I actually had fixed the problem but was not igniting the heater properly. August did not charge me for his help. Thank you August. All's well that ends well.
Just had my toilet replaced cuz my old one died.  Anyway, I called and was greeted by August who was very nice.  I told him what I needed and then he told me he would have someone call me back asap to set up the appointment to have my toilet replaced.  In about an hour, maybe less, I received a call from one of the plumbers and he asked about details regarding the type of toilet I had and how big the restroom was, etc etc....I suck at describing details so I asked if it's ok to take a picture of the toilet and the restroom and he said that's fine.  Once he got the pictures he gave me a reasonable quote and said he will be at my place between 12-1pm.   He came within the specified time and the whole process only took an hour.  No fuss, no mess.  Very please with the service and will definitely use this company again for future plumbing needs.  Thank you!

Average Americans work well into their 60s, so workers might as well have a job that’s enjoyable and a career that's fulfilling. A job with a low stress level, good work-life balance and solid prospects to improve, get promoted and earn a higher salary would make many employees happy. Here's how Plumbers job satisfaction is rated in terms of upward mobility, stress level and flexibility.


We just moved into our new house a few weeks ago, so having Yuriy do our plumbing check has given us peace of mind. He was excellent at explaining things to us and did a fantastic job with all of the plumbing work (we had our garbage disposal removed and needed a new part for our water heater). We are always so pleased with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. The quality of the work and customer service is unmatched. 

Sewer lines can become clogged in either of two ways: obstructions that build up in the line from usage or obstructions that intrude on the line from outside. Over time, greases, fats, hair, and other items sent down the branch drains can build up on the walls of the sewer line and narrow its capacity. When that capacity is low enough, showers and tubs will not drain and toilets will not flush properly. Another way that a sewer line's capacity can be compromised is when elements outside of the line, namely tree roots, enter the line. Despite the strength of sewer pipe materials, tree roots' growth can be strong enough to penetrate the line. http://youtube.com/watch?v=hokTzqWiBMQ
Each Government at the state level has their own Authority and regulations in place for licensing plumbers. They are also responsible for the interpretation, administration and enforcement of the regulations outlined in the NCC.[38] These Authorities are usually established for the sole purpose of regulating plumbing activities in their respective states/territories. However, several state level regulation acts are quite outdated, with some still operating on local policies introduced more than a decade ago. This has led to an increase in plumbing regulatory issues not covered under current policy, and as such, many policies are currently being updated to cover these more modern issues. The updates include changed to the minimum experience and training requirements for licensing, additional work standards for new and more specific kinds of plumbing, as well as adopting the Plumbing Code of Australia into state regulations in an effort to standardise plumbing regulations across the country.[39]

Galvanized steel potable water supply and distribution pipes are commonly found with nominal pipe sizes from 3⁄8 inch (9.5 mm) to 2 inches (51 mm). It is rarely used today for new construction residential plumbing. Steel pipe has National Pipe Thread (NPT) standard tapered male threads, which connect with female tapered threads on elbows, tees, couplers, valves, and other fittings. Galvanized steel (often known simply as "galv" or "iron" in the plumbing trade) is relatively expensive, and difficult to work with due to weight and requirement of a pipe threader. It remains in common use for repair of existing "galv" systems and to satisfy building code non-combustibility requirements typically found in hotels, apartment buildings and other commercial applications. It is also extremely durable and resistant to mechanical abuse. Black lacquered steel pipe is the most widely used pipe material for fire sprinklers and natural gas.

“Don’t assume that every Mr. Fix-it advertising his services in the local Pennysaver or on Craigslist is a licensed plumber,” says one New York plumber. There is no national standard for issuing licenses. Some plumbers are licensed by the state, others by the counties they work in. Check with your local city hall or chamber of commerce. They should be able to direct you to the appropriate source for a list of licensed plumbers in your area.
There’s often an Allen wrench that comes with the garbage disposal. I keep it under the sink. When the thing jams, follow the directions in the manual, and I won’t need to come out. Another plumbing tip, don’t believe the myth about putting lemon peels in the disposal to make it smell better. That will just make it jam faster.  These are the things you should never pour down the drain.

August came out to inspect 3 septic tanks on a property I had in escrow. He is extremely knowledgeable. As a real estate broker and property manager, I've hired countless plumbing and septic companies over the years. He was on time, professional, got right to work, took his time and did a very thorough inspection. The value he provided was the best investment I made on this deal. Hiring knowledgeable contractors to inspect your properties is your best insurance against loss and he saved me tens of thousands of dollars with the information he provided.

Our technicians can arrive at your residence as soon as possible, bringing state-of-the-art equipment to address the plumbing emergency, complete the job in a timely and efficient manner, and get your household plumbing systems back to normal quickly.
In the moving-in phase of a condo over several days, the garbage disposal was found to be dysfunctional. A handyman said it needed a new disposal, which I had to buy and he would install during his tight schedule next week. With water leaking through the pipes to the dishwasher to the kitchen floor the disposal needed attention NOW. One of the 5-star plumbing companies said it would cost $400. ProDrain gave a price that included one hour for $125 and $133 for a 1/2 horsepower disposal. OK. I needed help NOW! The plumber Pro-Drain sent could have been raised by my mom. He was ethical. He just took out a hex wrench and loosened the disposal and it works fine. Total cost $105 for his time. I'll call Pro-Drain again if I need plumbing work. http://youtube.com/v/hokTzqWiBMQ?version=3

Whenever you make a large purchase, you always request a receipt, right? Well, you will want a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house. You want someone that's doing major maintenance or repair work on your house or commercial building to stand by his or her labor. Before you hire a plumber, ask him or her if they offer written warranties.
A pipe video inspection uses a waterproof video camera to provide a clear look at the interior of an underground pipe or sewer line. This technique can be used on pipes that are anywhere from 2-32 inches in diameter, and it involves inserting a flexible rod with a small video camera on its tip into the pipe. A pipe video inspection can be used to diagnose a wide range  of plumbing problems, from root intrusion to pipe corrosion. It's often recommended for pipes that frequently become clogged or are slow to drain.

Most plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters learn their trade through a 4- or 5-year apprenticeship. Apprentices typically receive 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training, as well as some classroom instruction, each year. In the classroom, apprentices learn safety, local plumbing codes and regulations, and blueprint reading. They also study mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry. Apprenticeship programs are offered by unions and businesses. Although most workers enter apprenticeships directly, some start out as helpers. The Home Builders Institute offers a pre-apprenticeship training program in plumbing and other trades.

PBT – flexible (usually gray or black) plastic pipe which is attached to barbed fittings and secured in place with a copper crimp ring. The primary manufacturer of PBT tubing and fittings was driven into bankruptcy by a class-action lawsuit over failures of this system.[citation needed] However, PB and PBT tubing has since returned to the market and codes, typically first for "exposed locations" such as risers. http://youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata&v=hokTzqWiBMQ

Commercial plumbing systems might need the following types of maintenance services: Drain care can prevent blockages, and it helps ensure that grease traps and drain lines function properly. Restroom disinfection can prevent noxious odors from developing in  drains and sink traps . Water heater and boiler maintenance ensures that these appliances are always in good working order and don’t create problems for your business. Backwater testing prevents pollution of the community's water supply. Commercial buildings usually have a backflow prevention assembly that stops the system's water from flowing back into the public water system. States typically require annual testing of backflow prevention assemblies, and if you fail this test, your company could be hit with a fine. Regular maintenance can help make sure your backflow prevention assembly is up to code. Water tempering can help prevent your employees from getting scalded by hot water by maintaining safe water temperatures. These valves need to be regularly inspected to make sure they're functioning properly.

An environmentally friendly commercial plumbing system is one that is designed to save water and reduce energy costs. These plumbing systems use pipes that are sized to minimize waste and leaks. They often take steps to minimize heat loss by using pipe insulators, or replacing existing pipes with ones made with materials that maintain heat. Environmentally friendly commercial plumbing systems also use faucets, showerheads, and toilets that are designed to minimize water consumption.

The movement of liquids and gases through pipes is critical to modern life. In homes, water is needed for both drinking and sanitation. In factories, chemicals are moved to aid in product manufacturing. In power plants, steam is moved to drive turbines that generate electricity. Plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters install and repair these pipe systems.

If you turn on your bathroom or kitchen sink in the morning to find brown or rust-colored water coming out of your faucet, don't panic. The discoloration is most likely due to old iron pipes or recent use of a hydrant or water main that disturbed the usual flow of water. Keep your water running for a minute or so and it should run clear after a while.

Despite the Romans' common use of lead pipes, their aqueducts rarely poisoned people. Unlike other parts of the world where lead pipes cause poisoning, the Roman water had so much calcium in it that a layer of plaque prevented the water contacting the lead itself. What often causes confusion is the large amount of evidence of widespread lead poisoning, particularly amongst those who would have had easy access to piped water.[14] This was an unfortunate result of lead being used in cookware and as an additive to processed food and drink, for example as a preservative in wine.[15] Roman lead pipe inscriptions provided information on the owner to prevent water theft. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata&v=hokTzqWiBMQ


For some mysterious reason in the days after Thanksgiving, our guest bath toilet became clogged. It was also affecting the washing machine drain and utility sink. I tried my puny homeowner drain snake and quickly realized I needed professional help. I live in Aloha and like working with local companies so I started by calling a company that purports to "bust clogs". I was greeting by an answering machine - never a good sign but I left my name and number anyway. After a couple of hours with no call back, I decided to call ProDrain. A human named Andrea answered and in a very professional manner got a technician on the way to my house in less than an hour. I realize that was partially good fortune but it also indicated to me they are well staffed and ready to react quickly. George appeared on my doorstep at the expected time and immediated sized up the situtation. I liked that he explained the possible options and listened to me as well. The drain clean out was on the other side of the house, so we elected to go in through the roof vent instead. I could tell that getting that snake to where it needed to be was a bit of a black art, as was knowing when he had hit the obstruction. Because you see, there was a solid object in the drain which didn't belong there. Was it a matchbox car? Fisher-price little people? Uncle Roy's missing cell phone? We will never know but plenty of water and reaming pretty much insured it wasn't going to be a problem any more. The charge? I hesitate to give the exact dollar amount here but let's just say it was far enough south of $200 that I can take the wife out for a nice dinner with the change. We were lucky that the vent approach worked, as removing a toilet would have been more. But it helps when you call the right people in the first place.
Had some scheduling issues recently, which is why 4 stars. Strongly suggest that they get rid of the policy (of which I was not aware) that if you are unable to answer your phone for the "courtesy call" that the plumber is on the way, your appointment gets cancelled. Along with the 4 hour window, this is not customer-friendly. But other than that, I've always been very happy with the actual work done and the overall efficiency of the company

The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire.[3] The Latin for lead is plumbum. Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes[4] and some were also covered with lead, lead was also used for piping and for making baths.[5] In medieval times anyone who worked with lead was referred to as a plumber as can be seen from an extract of workmen fixing a roof in Westminster Palace and were referred to as plumbers "To Gilbert de Westminster, plumber, working about the roof of the pantry of the little hall, covering it with lead, and about various defects in the roof of the little hall".[6] Thus a person with expertise in working with lead was first known as a Plumbarius which was later shortened to plumber. https://m.youtube.com/e/hokTzqWiBMQ
Plumbers develop blueprints to plan where pipes and fixtures should be plotted in a structure. They also install and connect the piping and fixtures, either working individually or with a team of apprentices and pipefitters. In addition to facilitating water supply from pipes and large fixtures, such as bathtubs, showers, sinks and toilets, plumbers ensure that water reaches appliances like dishwashers and water heaters. The best in the occupation are strong problem-solvers who have mastered customer service and can meet the physical and mechanical demands of the job.

Backwater testing prevents pollution of the community's water supply. Commercial buildings usually have a backflow prevention assembly that stops the system's water from flowing back into the public water system. States typically require annual testing of backflow prevention assemblies, and if you fail this test, your company could be hit with a fine. Regular maintenance can help make sure your backflow prevention assembly is up to code. Water tempering can help prevent your employees from getting scalded by hot water by maintaining safe water temperatures. These valves need to be regularly inspected to make sure they're functioning properly.

Sid called ahead and let me know what time he would show up. He arrived on time and quickly determined what needed to be fixed and explained it. He needed to make a few trips out to his truck to grab tools/supplies and put shoe covers on each time he entered the house. He quickly fixed our issue and cleaned up when he was finished. Great service from Sid! Just had another visit to fix a leaking meter horn. Andrew called 20 minutes before he arrived and quickly decided what needed repair. He didn't have the exact part needed on his truck, but he was able to get it from the warehouse quickly. He fixed our issue and cleaned up the area well. Thanks to Andrew and Ben Franklin Plumbing for fixing our plumbing problem on Christmas Eve!
