Like most people, you probably don’t think about your plumbing or plumbers until something in your home is clogged, broken, or leaking.
But imagine how much time you would spend sourcing clean water if it didn’t come out of a tap on demand. Or what a nightmare long-distance traveling would be without any public restrooms. Clearly, plumbing services and plumbing experts are essential to modern life.
Keep reading to learn from us here at Joe the Plumber how plumbers are integral to the development of public health, sustainability, and property maintenance as we know them.
We’re sure we don’t have to explain the importance of a functioning indoor toilet. What may be less obvious is how indoor plumbing has radically advanced sanitation, public health, and personal hygiene. It’s not hyperbole to say that access to functional and reliable indoor toilets, clean drinking water, and water for washing our bodies and personal belongings lengthens lifespans and keeps us safe from a host of preventable illnesses.
Obviously, indoor fixtures such as sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets are only convenient when they work correctly. When they aren’t functioning, fixing the problem shoots to the top of your to-do list. Plumbers know this – and they want to be as accommodating as possible. Many plumbers even structure their business around serving their clients on weekdays, weekends, and at any time of the day or night.
Indoor plumbing is always going to be essential to our everyday lives, and that makes plumbing a reliable and rewarding field to enter. People of any age, gender, or previous work experience can get a plumbing job with the proper certifications and enough training. It’s generally a well-compensated job with the potential to work independently or to advance through the ranks in an established plumbing business. Plumbers can then support their families and participate fully in economic life as consumers of other businesses’ products and services.
Looking to the future, environmental sustainability is the next frontier that plumbers will have a huge part in shaping. There has already been a great deal of advancement in sustainable plumbing systems that reduce water consumption, energy use, and unusable energy output. Plumbers are the best professionals to take on this challenge of creating a more energy-efficient future, one property at a time.
