Case Study: My Experience With Plumbers
Duties of a Plumber
Plumbing is an activity that is involved in conveying the fluids to be put into various applications or uses. Moving the fluids is a process which is facilitated or enhanced through the use of valves, pipes, tanks and plumbing fixtures. Plumbing is an essential activity because it is applied in the following areas; in heating and cooling and systems, waste removal systems and movement of portable fluids. The professional person who is concerned with the installation and maintenance of the plumbing systems is referred to as a plumber. A plumber is, therefore, the central person in ensuring that the movement of fluids to the desired destination is effective. Therefore, I will discuss some of the roles that are played by a plumber in the plumbing systems.
The roles of the plumbers are countless when a plumbing system is instituted to move the fluids from one place to another. When doing installation and maintenance activities are being done, the plumber is greatly involved in assembling of pipes, tubes, and fittings. The plumbers possess the assembling skills that bring together the piping system. Depending on the fault at stake, the plumbers convene the pipes and fittings using various materials, they can use; bolts, screws, types of cement or even plastics. Once assembling is done, leakages can be detected by filling the system with the liquids or gases. Appropriate repairs are done on the found leaking pipes.
Plumbers also have the duty of installing fluid systems in buildings, and therefore they study the plans to inspect the structures to use for installation. Plumbers outline the best sequence of installing the piping systems the moment they finish analyzing the plan of the building. There are other important connections in these buildings that are installed, and therefore it is the plumber to take care when installing the piping system. Once the requirements are met, the plumbers are free to install the plumbing system that satisfies the whole building.
Plumber can accommodate a new piping system by use of various tools which help in cutting the openings from the structures of an existing system. From the major system, the plumbers can produce a separate system when they cut the structures with the help of hand or power tools or equipment. The plumbers’ work starts immediately they install the plumbing system because they are followed by repeated maintenance works. These works are replacing or mending the broken pipes, replacing the worn our washers and unblocking the clogged drainers.
Lastly, plumbers are not only concerned with physical work, but they are also involved in record keeping of assignments that help them to produce a detailed work report at the end. The plumbers can manage to do calculations that help in planning for the jobs especially when they are involved in complex jobs. The installation period of the piping system can be controlled by estimating the work durations.
