Plumbing is a very interesting and varied career. The sheer variety of work makes it impossible to list all the different careers you can go in to.
Plumbers work in all types of buildings, including houses, flats cafes, restaurants, hotels, pubs airports, aeroplanes, trains, stations, colleges, schools, factories, hospitals and ships. People need water to survive, so everywhere there is people, there will be a need for Plumbers.
Another aspect of the Plumbers work is maintenance and repair. Everyone should be aware that boilers and other fuel-burning appliances need annual servicing to keep them safe.
As well as fitting the piping systems that carry water around the building, Plumbers are involved with keeping the inside of the building dry by fitting gutters and sheet lead weathering to chimneys and roofs.
Thinking about the above, it's obvious that everyone needs Plumbers at some time, so there is never a shortage of work-there’s always a shortage of qualified plumbers, which of course means that the pay can be very good.
