Becoming a plumber is a two-pronged process that includes practical training and study. Traditionally, a hopeful plumber begins a four- or five-year apprenticeship program to receive technical education and complete the required hours of on-the-job training under a licensed professional. Plumbers who have successfully completed their apprenticeship are known as journeymen.

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.

Cast iron and ductile iron pipe was long a lower-cost alternative to copper, before the advent of durable plastic materials but special non-conductive fittings must be used where transitions are to be made to other metallic pipes, except for terminal fittings, in order to avoid corrosion owing to electrochemical reactions between dissimilar metals (see galvanic cell).[17]

Not only do plumber apprentices have to complete their training and education to receive their licenses, they also are required to pass a criminal background check and carry liability insurance. Hiring just anybody can make you vulnerable to fraud since unlicensed plumbers might not know what they're doing or could pretend to fix something and end up charging you for the incomplete work. http://www.youtube.com/v/hokTzqWiBMQ&feature=youtu.be

Another service commonly offered by plumbers is drain cleaning. Bathroom and kitchen sinks are used daily to drain away water and various debris from our everyday lives. As a result, they often become clogged and need to be repaired or cleaned in order to function properly. A good plumber will have the tools and expertise to get rid of whatever debris or grime is keeping your drain from draining properly.  

Selecting the right plumbing service isn’t easy. To receive the quality assistance you deserve, trust Best Plumbing. The highly-trained and informed plumbers at Best Plumbing are prepared to handle any and every commercial and residential need. You can count on us for all your drain cleaning, water heater, plumbing installation and sewer services needs. Why should you choose our company over others?
Some allege that putting a brick in the toilet tank can save water, but doing that can keep your toilet from flushing correctly. Another plumbing tip, avoid liquid drain cleaners. Liquid drain cleaners are also bad news—they eat away at the pipes. Try a plunger or, better yet, a $30 auger. Don’t have either? Here’s how to unclog a toilet without a plunger.
For many centuries, lead was the favoured material for water pipes, because its malleability made it practical to work into the desired shape. (Such use was so common that the word "plumbing" derives from plumbum, the Latin word for lead.) This was a source of lead-related health problems in the years before the health hazards of ingesting lead were fully understood; among these were stillbirths and high rates of infant mortality. Lead water pipes were still widely used in the early 20th century, and remain in many households. In addition, lead-tin alloy solder was commonly used to join copper pipes, but modern practice uses tin-antimony alloy solder instead, in order to eliminate lead hazards.[13]
Every time you turn on the hot water to wash your hands or take a shower, or run your dishwasher or laundry machine on a hot setting, you rely upon your water heater in order to ensure that you have the hot water necessary to complete the task at hand. If you want your water heater to function as effectively, efficiently, and reliably as possible, you need more than just a great product; you also need a great technician to complete your water heater installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance services. That’s just what you’ll get when you work with us.
I called ProDrain and scheduled an appointment. They called me a day earlier and notified me of an earlier appointment that became available. Chris Terrones came out and unclogged our drain within 30 minutes.  Chris was very friendly and professional. On top of the excellent service, we saved a couple hundred dollars by using ProDrain & Rooter Service instead of Roto Rooter. Highly recommend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hokTzqWiBMQ&feature=youtu.be

Read more to find out information on the multitude of services we offer.
Another way to avoid a service call from your plumber is to make sure the outside faucets are turned off in the winter and make sure you disconnect the outside hoses. You need to shut the water off from the inside. Then, open the valve on the outside to let the water that’s in there drain out—you switch both of them to the opposite direction so one is always closed and one is always open. We have to fix tons of these in the spring mostly because people leave their outside hoses connected and they freeze up. The repair could cost $100-$200 or more. Another tip would be if you’re going away for any length of time, like on vacation, turn off your water. If on any of those days the temperature drops below freezing, have someone check in on your house. I’ve been called to homes where the family returned from vacation, and there was water flooding out from the front door. https://www.youtube.com/e/hokTzqWiBMQ
I had a relatively simple repair on the water main next to the water meter. After receiving other quotes which were much more than I expected, I called Scout. They quoted a cost that beat the other quotes and said that if I dug and refilled, it would be almost half. Scout arrived timely and were professional and courteous. I am most pressed. Thanks again!

Homes have many combustion appliances, such as stoves, water heaters, fireplaces, furnaces, and boilers. Without proper ventilation, these appliances can create harmful gases such as carbon monoxide. Adequate ventilation is absolutely necessary in any home. For example, exhaust fans can play a pivotal role in clearing out harmful gases in bathrooms, cooking areas, and garages. They can keep the air clear of harmful moisture and fumes, while increasing your comfort by keeping humidity levels low.

In the United Kingdom the professional body is the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (educational charity status) and it is true that the trade still remains virtually ungoverned;[40] there are no systems in place to monitor or control the activities of unqualified plumbers or those home owners who choose to undertake installation and maintenance works themselves, despite the health and safety issues which arise from such works when they are undertaken incorrectly; see Health Aspects of Plumbing (HAP) published jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Plumbing Council (WPC).[41][42] WPC has subsequently appointed a representative to the World Health Organization to take forward various projects related to Health Aspects of Plumbing.[43]

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.
Need a quick fix? After having a plumber come out to your house, they might tell you the part needed to fix your toilet or sink issue is going to take a week. Don’t be too amenable if you can’t wait. There’s no shame in working with another plumber who can get the part and do the job when you need it. If you’re doing the job yourself, be sure you know these tips for completing a plumbing fix like a pro. https://youtube.com/v/hokTzqWiBMQ?version=3

The thicknesses of the water pipe and tube walls can vary. Pipe wall thickness is denoted by various schedules or for large bore polyethylene pipe in the UK by the Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR), defined as the ratio of the pipe diameter to its wall thickness. Pipe wall thickness increases with schedule, and is available in schedules 20, 40, 80, and higher in special cases. The schedule is largely determined by the operating pressure of the system, with higher pressures commanding greater thickness. Copper tubing is available in four wall thicknesses: type DWV (thinnest wall; only allowed as drain pipe per UPC), type 'M' (thin; typically only allowed as drain pipe by IPC code), type 'L' (thicker, standard duty for water lines and water service), and type 'K' (thickest, typically used underground between the main and the meter). Because piping and tubing are commodities, having a greater wall thickness implies higher initial cost. Thicker walled pipe generally implies greater durability and higher pressure tolerances.
Had a mainline clog, called on a Monday morning at 8am, left a message. They called me back and Jesse came out by 9:30am. Beat out four other plumbers I called! Jesse was very polite and kind and quickly diagnosed the problem. Used roof access to clean out the clog with his snake device for $185. I'm not how sure how that price compares with others, but seemed reasonable.
Plumbers may not go out of their way to let you know that a toilet or sink can be moved. But if you’ve been working with them on a renovation, and they tell you something can’t be transferred to a new space, ask them to explain to you in detail why not. Speaking of things people don’t want to tell you, here are 10 things your neighbor isn’t being up-front about.
Don’t flush floss, tampons, or even so-called “flushable” wipes. They don’t break down like toilet paper does and can come back to haunt you later. “Toilets are more water-efficient now than they were 20 years ago, so there sometimes isn’t enough volume in the flush to force debris down,” says Marcin Wroblewski, president of ExpressRooter Plumbing in Toronto. “An object will get lodged in the trap and cause blockage when waste builds up days later.” http://www.youtube.com/v/hokTzqWiBMQ&feature=youtube_gdata

"We have never used CroppMetcalfe before, but awoke in the wee hours to a plumbing emergency, so we tried calling. We were thrilled to get a noon - 5 PM service window. Levi did a great job and arrived early. (We were notified he could arrive early which was very welcome.) We bought a PSP and look forward to using CroppMetcalfe in the future, though hopefully only for scheduled calls. No more plumbing emergencies would be good. We are especially grateful for the timely "call ahead" because we've got two big, loud dogs, so it's important for us to get them out of the way, so the service personnel can work.  Thank you for your excellent service."
Our kitchen sink was stopped up this morning due to me pouring something down that I shouldn't have. I tried pouring boiling water down the drain, to no avail, vinegar/soda, again, not helpful, then called the Professionals, ProDrain & Rooter Service. Chris arrived at 4:30 pm, took the drain apart, rinsed out the gunk and the sink was running like a Champ! I would not hesitate to call ProDrain & Rooter Service for any type of plumbing problem. ProDrain & Rooter Service came to my rescue!!!!!!! Thank you again, Chris, you were courteous, friendly, careful with your tools and most of all professional in every way. I hope everyone will call ProDrain & Rooter Service !!!!!!!! They're the BEST !!!!!!!

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! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hokTzqWiBMQ&feature=youtube_gdata
High-pressure pipe jetting is also known as hydro jetting or high-pressure pipe cleaning, and it uses a high-pressure water stream to clean pipes that are partially or completely blocked. With this approach, a slim hose with a jet nozzle is inserted into the pipe, and used to blast the pipe's interior with pressurized water. High-pressure pipe jetting can clear tough blockages and buildup, and can remove sediment, sludge, and grease from the sides of your pipes.
If a plumber needs to do major repairs to your house, the work could call for a permit. You'll want this since a permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this added measure in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you ever plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will also want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.

Plumbers in Australia have licensing requirements that differ from state to state but it is generally accepted a 4-year apprenticeship with a further minimum experience of 2 years (6 years total) and a further curricular requirement as a benchmark for licensing. Licensed plumbers are also expected to maintain minimum relevant training requirements to maintain their plumbing license

“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.
"Woke up on Saturday morning to find my garage flooded and quickly isolated the culprit: my Hot Water Tank. After several inquiries I decided to hire Dr.(David) Dees Plumbing to replace my Hot Water Tank. He arrived that same day at the specified time, evaluated the situation, gave me a couple of options including my contacting the builder of my home to inquire about a possible free replacement (nice to do business with an ethical guy). Because of my time constraints I decided to have David replace the tank. I couldn't be happier with the price and service. He is honest, competent (Master Plumber), conscientious, professional, clean and friendly. He delivered a professional installation of a commercial grade (Gas) Hot Water Tank compliant with all Fort Worth building/installation codes. He answered all my questions. Shared some maintenance tips to extend the life of my tank. Disposed of the old tank and cleaned up his work space afterwards. If there was a grade higher than "Outstanding" I would give it. I would have no problem rehiring David for future plumbing jobs or recommending him to my friends and acquaintances. A+++++ for service and price. Signed Paul D in Fort Worth, TX"
