How did you get started in the plumbing trade?

A Vietnam veteran, who owned his own plumbing company at the time, helped me get started and took me off the streets and showed me how to make an honest living.

What do you like most about your work as a plumber?

Troubleshooting and figuring  out where the problem is and how to fix it without causing too much damage to the existing house building or structure and knowing that I’m making a difference

What advice do you have for the younger generation entering the plumbing trade? 


The plumbing trade is a trade to be respected. The word plumbing is Greek for leveled uniform done, professional work is your signature. It states what type of person you are by the workmanship you do even though people can’t see the work because it’s buried in the walls underground or in the attic it doesn’t matter whether you’re work can be seen, or not it’s self satisfying, knowing you did the job, right
