What does a plumber actually do?
The plumber installs, assembles, maintains and repairs the water supply and sewerage networks, as well as their auxiliary parts. Specifically, when installing a water supply network, he calculates the types and quantity of materials he will use. He also drills holes in the walls or floors with special tools or drills to allow the pipes to pass through. He cuts pipes, creates threads for screwing. Bends the pipes, where needed, and seals the pipe joints.
In the sewerage installations, he undertakes the digging of the walls or floors. The special sewerage pipes will pass, he places the materials (pipes, fittings, joints, etc.), makes the necessary welds and connections and closes the water channels that had been opened.
In addition to the installation of networks, the plumber is responsible for connecting, assembly, maintenance and repair of plumbing and sanitary ware (bathrooms, water heaters, bathtubs). He can also undertake the installation, control, testing and operation of various cooling and heating systems (air conditioners, solar water heaters, radiators). The plumber can specialize in the installation of central heating (thermohydraulic) or only in the structure of water supply and sewerage networks (plumber), following all the key precautionary measures for health and safety. As you can see, the plumber undertakes everything regarding the water supply in any building, whether it has to do with its installation or repair.
