  1. I used to work in H.R in the supply chain industry, which took massive hits in revenue during and after covid. Plumbing started as a fascination the first time I paid a plumber to put new water lines in a home I was flipping. Turned into my main source of income working for a great company that is eager to train. My job includes elements of mechanical engineering and electrical as well, so the sky is the limit on what you will be exposed to.

  3. Everyone should always wear gloves when dealing with toulets period. You are dealing with bacteria that can kill you and you wouldn't even know your sick. Also never wear shorts its unprofessional.

  5. Hello sir I have a big problem and can’t seem to figure it out. Toilet doesn’t flush, called a plumber he pulled and augured the toilet, he went 75 feet in the main drain. That did not work so he augured the kitchen sink, and washer drain tube because they all run on the same line “kitchen to washer to toilet to bathroom sink to shower then out to the city”. Still did not work and he basically gave up. Now the next day “yesterday” I had another plumber come out he pulled and augured the toilet and ran 150 feet down the main to the city network. “Nothing” he just kinda left said he will do some research after doing another call somewhere else. Never heard from him. I heard maybe it might be a vent problem so after youtube I went to the roof and put a garden hose down the vent and with a jet nozzle flushed it for a few minutes. Then I had about 10 perfect power flushes in the toilet. I thought I fixed it and went to sleep and woke up and it flushed about 2 more times and then it stopped flushing again. I forgot to mention yesterday after the 2nd plumber left I installed a brand new toilet myself with a perfect insulation everything went perfectly installing it. So now I am $600 down with no results. When I ran the washer and dishwasher water started backing up in the kitchen. Any thoughts you might have with be much appreciated. Thanks for your time

  6. I’m considering being a plumber but I have digestive issues, what do you guys do when you’re at a customers home and you have to go to the bathroom? I’m sure for number one if worst comes to worst then you grab a bottle or something but what happens when it’s number two? Lol

  7. The video production is on point! As a previous videographer I’m impressed with the investment you’ve put into your work documentation. Keep up the great work. I interviewed today as a plumbing helper sick of a desk job went to school for business and looking for a career change working hands on.

  8. Little trick on those sensors if you undo the nut and break off the tiny sensor wiring then slide that thermistor as far into the thermostat as you can then tighten it back up and it’ll keep working. Most of them will work that way forever. Rheem must’ve had a bad bunch bc I’ve had the same issue a lot here lately even on my new installs.

  9. I am studying HVAC right now and plumber is one of the jobs I could have. I just have some basic questions. Compared to other HVAC trades where'd you put it on a 1-10 difficulty scale, what does the pay look like, what days do we usually get off?
