Being a plumber is more than just being handy with tools and working on leaking pipes and stubborn toilets. A good plumber thinks outside the box – always thinking about the cause of each issue, the reason it happened and the effects that it will have down the pipe, so to speak.
A blocked drain, for instance, may be caused by many things – but the problems that can arise from it can differ greatly, depending on where it is and what is affected. The weather, especially in Mississauga, has a huge impact on our plumbing. Many home-owners don’t know the simple steps that they can take to protect themselves.
A good plumber has to be an excellent listener and able to cope with a variety of situations. They must me nimble; often they have to work in tight, uncomfortable, extreme hot or cold and difficult to access areas. Working with raw sewage in a variety of forms is another difficult part of the job – some working conditions are very unsanitary and can be quite hazardous.
A good plumber understands that all customers needs are different. Plumbing has changed dramatically over the years and many of the houses that they go to in the Mississauga area are very old and have their own set of issues that only a skilled, thinking plumber would know. Experience counts for a lot in this trade, and working in all sorts of settings is a must. Skills and training is still through an apprenticeship in Ontario, but numerous hours over the years need to be completed, and all those happened on the job- be it commercial or residential.
Plumbers have to be excellent diagnosticians and problem-solvers; they also need to think quickly on their feet should an emergency arise. it is helpful to have a good bedside manner as well; many customers can be at the end of their rope when faced with a plumbing emergency as it cuts into the daily routine and, unfortunately, can be costly. Of course, it can be a bit of a dirty job; it does help when you look neat and presentable as they are always representing themselves and the company.
