What does a plumber do?

Working as a plumber means that you are responsible for connecting and installing water and gas lines, bathroom and central heating facilities. Your activities consist of attaching, assembling, mounting or repairing pipes or fixtures for heating, water or draining systems. Sometimes, you do small jobs, like installing a tap. But, in other cases, you are responsible for installing a complete bathroom. There is a great shortage of plumbers. Additionally, this profession is fairly future-proof.
