Often people ask what makes an expert plumber and why should you hire one rather than trying to do plumbing on your own? Let’s first look at the term “expert”; this indicates experience and a large body of knowledge. In the case of plumbing, the types of knowledge an expert plumber should possess include the ability to read blueprints, understanding of math and physics principles, an intimate knowledge of water, drainage systems, conservation, structural engineering of pipes and waterways, and a comprehensive knowledge of building codes.
An expert plumber will understand appliances, connective materials and best plumbing practices. An expert plumber knows how to properly read blueprints, install, repair and/or maintain all kinds of pipes, and understands and can correctly plumb not only for clean water distribution but proper waste water removal. The expert plumbers at Kew Forest Plumbing can also help you choose what type of modern radiant heating system will be best.
An expert plumber has undergone a great deal of education and training to learn their trade over and above attaining their high school or college degrees. Expert plumbers will often have a state certified technical certificate. Expert plumbers have undergone a mandatory 144 hours of apprenticeship that combine on-the-job training with classroom study. They has advanced from apprentice to journeyman plumber with state-mandated years of experience in their trade, and attained the rank of a master plumber, which means additional years of experience as a journeyman. Expert plumbers have been licensed after passing a comprehensive and often grueling set of tests designed to ensure the proper skills and knowledge. Reputable expert plumbers like Kew Forest Plumbing are state-mandated to carry liability insurance, which further protects their customers.
Plumbing mishaps caused by individuals reluctant to call in an expert plumber include (but are not limited to) broken water mains, flooded rooms, and electrical shorts. We all know a friend or relative who believed a hammer could fix anything, often with unpleasant results. In the event of any specialized need, it is common sense to defer to an expert-whatever the problem, it can thus be immediately handled rather than made worse. If you need financial help you call an accountant or a banker, if you need medical help you consult a doctor, if your pipes are broken you call an expert plumber.
