Know These Things Before Going Into Plumbing
If you are considering becoming a plumber in the future, the step before is usually becoming a plumber apprentice. Before you take this step, you should know what it means to be a plumber apprentice. Watch this video for a breakdown on the things you should know before going into the plumbing field.
You should understand that being a plumber is no easy job. In popular media the job of a plumber is made to look like it is meant for lazy, unhealthy people who do not like to do much work. This could not be any further from the truth. There are times when you will get uncomfortable whether it be because you have to work in a tight space or because of varying temperatures and there will also be times when a job takes longer than expected. These circumstances are draining for just about anyone so it is important to understand that being a plumber is no walk in the park.
You should also remember that you will not be an apprentice forever. Being an apprentice can feel tough sometimes because you are not going to be paid much, if anything at all, and it can feel like the work you are doing is without merit. Keeping in mind that things will get better and you will be a full fledged plumber one day is a good way to avoid feeling burnt out and unmotivated.
