What kind of work do you do in a day?March 9, 2021 at 12:19 pm #4899AnonymousInactive00000
Each day if different, it depends upon the job. One day I might install pipe assemblies, fittings, valves, for a dishwashers or water heaters. The next day I will, fill pipes or plumbing fixtures with water or air and observe pressure gauges to detect and locate leaks. I may do pipe cutting, assembly, or installation of new plumbing systems. My day depends upon the job. Each day I check my tools and supplies, work orders and schedule my appointments depending upon the amount of time each project/work order will take.

A normal workday would begin on the job staging equipment, tools and materials. There are basically 3 stages of work to a plumbing job, underground, above ground rough-in, then finish. In HVAC there are generally 2 stages to a job, Rough-in and finish. Rough-in consists of running pipe, water lines, duct work, venting, gas piping and numerous others depending on the specific job. Finish work is setting equipment like furnaces, water heaters, air exchangers, water softeners, making final connections to gas appliances, final water connections, setting fixtures, running water and testing the systems.
