What makes a true plumber? The average self-repair homeowner may believe that all it takes is duct tape, a wrench and some super glue. Got a leaky faucet? Sounds like it’s time to apply that duct tape. Got a clogged toilet? Sounds like a good time to use that wrench. Got a broken pipe? You can never use too much super glue. While all of us would love to instantly transform into a well-trained plumber when urgent plumbing problems come our way, most of us do not have the privilege of such talent. So what separates a true plumber from the rest of us?
Standards for a True Plumber
