Plumbers are valued members of any construction crew. They're also the repair person you call in an emergency—such as no water in a plumbing fixture or too much water someplace it doesn't belong. Today's plumbers must be familiar with the most up-to-date trends in building and renovations. This includes many new high-efficiency fixtures, designed to waste less water. This book explores the training needed to become a plumber and the sort of pay a novice can expect in direct language chosen to appeal to young people. Sidebars explore career options for plumbers and full color photos showcase the equipment and tools plumbers use.
