What Does a Plumber Do?

Most of us have some idea about what plumbers do. After all, they deal with clogged toilets, sinks, and piping. We call them when we have some problem with our pipes. However, plumbers do much more than just simple plumbing repair jobs.

We also specialize in new construction residential installation needs. Customers are always first at our plumbing company. Below, we’ll take a look at the most common tasks that plumbers do.

Plumbers in essence install, repair, and diagnose and fix problems and pipes related to heating, water, and drainage systems. This includes the fittings and the fixtures as well. Now, this is a broad description. Below is a bit more detail:

  • Design and install pipes for drainage systems
  • Design and install pipes for fresh water systems
  • Diagnose, maintain, and repair fresh water systems
  • Diagnose, maintain, and repair drainage systems


Plumbers help with the installation of appliances, such as your dishwasher, and fixtures, which are your sinks and toilets. A big part of their job (and when you are most likely to see them) is when something goes wrong in the piping systems. From burst pipes to clogs and whole house replacement needs, a plumber’s job is to ensure that there are no problems in your fresh water and sewer system.

There are many specialties that plumbers can branch into as well. Some plumbers specialize in residential plumbing, which is helping homeowners with their plumbing solutions. Others specialize in commercial plumbing, which can be a bit more involved for big office buildings, restaurants, grocery stores, and more. Some plumbers help with slab leak detection and repair, sump pumps, repiping, main water line work, and gas piping installation. Truly, there is a lot to do, and every day is different in the life of a plumber.
