The Importance of Plumbers to Indianapolis Homeowners

By Dwane Zelinsky Subscribe to RSS | April 23rd 2012 | Views:

When people talk about heroes, they envision long-dead warriors who have saved their nations against evil conquerors, but truth is, there really are heroes everywhere, and Americans well know the average guy next door can be the one to save your day. There’s the guy that cleans windows of high-rise buildings, or a firefighter that runs into a burning house to save a child. Or, on a mundane level, the guy that makes things right in your home again, that Indianapolis plumber you call to fix your pipes or unclog your drains.

Without plumbers, the entire world would turn into a smelly, post-apocalyptic wasteland. Imagine not having running water in the house to wash the dishes, not being able to flush the toilet or use the shower—the entire world would come to a standstill. Plumbers, like every honest-to-goodness profession, have their place in the machinery of society, and the more we appreciate what it takes to be a plumber—and a good one at that—the sooner we extend them the respect they deserve the next time they come calling. Here are the basics of what it means to be a plumber:


There are a lot of Indianapolis vocational schools that train aspiring plumbers. A union or a plumbing association also administer apprenticeships in which an aspiring plumber works with an experienced one for four to five years, and learn on the job. A plumber’s training usually consists of classroom education with on-the-job training.

Work Environment

Plumbers are expected to work hours longer than your forty-hour workweek. They need to be available during emergencies, and they understand how they need to work in not-so-desirable environments, such as sewers and basements with no heating or air conditioning systems-- to get the job done.

Residential Plumbing

Indianapolis plumbers can work with your construction team when you’re building a house. They need to work beside those who are building the house because the plumbing is an integral part of any home. They install all the pipes, the gas lines, and a lot of other things you’d need in the house.

Commercial Plumbing

In a commercial establishment, an Indianapolis plumber does many of the same tasks that they do with residential buildings, only on a much greater scale. A typical commercial building would use hundreds of plumbing fixtures that need to be installed, compared to a dozen or so in a home. Plumbers also install sprinkler systems, drinking fountains, irrigation systems, fountains, and others.

Every plumber Indianapolis has is a modern-day hero, so next time one works on a plumbing problem in your home, appreciate what they’ve come to do for you. For more information, you can visit or
