Plumbing is said to be the system of pipes, tanks, fittings, and other apparatus required for water supply, heating, and sanitation in a building. Plumbers install, repair, and maintain piping systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

The duties of a plumber include: installing, repairing and maintaining pipes, fixtures, and other plumbing equipment; opening walls and floors to accommodate pipes and pipe fittings; welding, connecting, and testing pipes for leaks; preparing cost estimates; interpreting blueprints and designs. Plumbers must also be aware of safety procedures and follow them at all times.
