Kinds of Plumbers You Can Hire Today

Posted by on December 2, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Just like any skilled laborer, plumbers are essential to the development and improvement of human lives. Ever since the creation of water systems in ancient Rome, people have started creating a need for plumbers who can deal with any piping trouble for their homes. Plumbers have remained relevant from then on.

So for this article, we’ll take a closer look at the work of plumbers, the kinds of plumbers, and which one you should hire for your needs today.

Residential Plumbers

Residential plumbers are those that can install the entire plumbing system of your home. They can even install an eco-friendly rainwater collection system in your home. They are also qualified to repair sinks, toilets, and faucets.

But in addition to all of that, they can also work with construction workers, electricians, and architects to put in the pipings for a soon-to-be constructed house, which of course will be necessary if you want a fully-usable home once done.  So if you want someone who can hook up your home water piping to water softeners to get better quality output, then you should be calling a residential plumber.

Commercial Plumbers

Commercial plumbers can basically do everything that a residential plumber can do, in a different setting. Commercial plumbers deal with piping work inside an office building, an entire floor, or practically any work setting.

The difference is, water and gas plumbing work is typically much more extensive and complicated in an office environment than in a home so commercial plumbers have to go through a bigger and more complex monster than the ones at home. Commercial plumbers are also called upon when building new skyscrapers and office complexes to get water running where it needs to be.

Service and Repair Plumbers

Service and Repair Plumbers are the ones you imagine to be calling when there’s a leaky faucet or when your toilets are clogged. They deal with day-to-day maintenance work (usually in a residential setting). However, what differentiates them from residential plumbers is that their knowledge about piping is limited to a specific area or won’t really be enough to layout the piping of an entire home.

Regardless, their expertise in plumbing is still good enough for your needs (especially if they’re just fixes that would require one solid day of work), then that would suffice.

But that’s not the only thing service and repair plumbers can do! Aside from dealing with water pipes, some plumbers are also specially licensed to handle gas pipes and other relevant repairs. If you’re someone who can’t really do this (or can’t be bothered to do this) type of work, then you already know who to call… or at least what kind of skilled laborer to call.

Unlicensed Plumbers

Technically speaking, all the kinds of plumbers mentioned above are licensed in their respective areas. A license is required by most states before skilled workers like plumbers and contractors can take on any kind of work.

But if you do need a quick fix, you do have the option to hire unlicensed plumbers. But do keep in mind that they won’t have the same guaranteed quality as licensed ones. Why? Well, the truth is, licensed plumbers have to clock in certain years of experience and training before they can obtain their license. However, if “Uncle Joe” can somehow fix the leaky faucet without any fee, then by all means he can do that for you.

On the other hand, if you’re a plumber who’s in this stage of your career, think about getting a license in plumbing in Montana if you want to become legitimate (and only if you are living in Montana, too).

The Bottomline

Choosing the right plumber is not just about knowing what kind of plumber to hire for your needs. It also takes a good amount of research and acquired negotiation skills to get the best deal out there without sacrificing quality. So don’t rush it, except if your plumbing issue is already an emergency.
