Plumbers install pipes and other equipment so that water and gas can move from one place in your home to another, and waste material can be removed.Through the application of Universal Design, plumbers can create access to sanitation within environments that promote independence and personal dignity. The features of Universal Design reflect the belief that attractive, accessible environments can be designed in a cost effective manner, and used by all people— with and without disabilities. The philosophy of Universal Design, first developed in the United States and England during the 1950’s-1960’s, is supported by decades of successful experience. The concepts of Universal Design have become increasing relevant as populations age in industrialized societies, develop disability, and choose to remain at home. The application of Universal Design in plumbing services is clearly reflected in the transformation of the bathroom. For example, water controls are now safely located outside of walk-in tubs and showers. This location allows the bather or caretaker to adjust the temperature and flow of water before it is entered. Hand held shower heads, or slide-bar shower heads, are conveniently located near tub/shower seats so that a person with disability can control them while washing. Sink faucets with scald-guard and volume control prevent injuries. Bidets enhance cleaning for people with limited mobility of the arms and hands
Plumbers work independently, or as part of a team that can include architects, carpenters, electricians and other tradesmen. A license is required for plumbers in many states, and an additional license may be necessary if a plumber works with gas. A plumber’s work is guided by government code standards and by the requirements of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).
Plumbers maintain the pipes that power furnaces, stoves, and other appliances that use gas to function. These pipes conduct heat in your home during the winter,and cool air during the summer. Without the skilled work of plumbers, your water would be cold or contain waste material. You might turn a faucet and find it dry. Plumbers connect the pipes that bring clean water to your kitchens and bathrooms, and remove sewage from your home.
Plumbers have been instrumental in the sanitation improvements that are reflected in good health and prolonged life. Adequate sanitation is one of the primary reasons that contagious disease is no longer prevalent.
