Pre-existing Skills Which Make a Great Plumber

It is great to be able to say, I’m technical, I would obviously make a great plumber. However, this is not entirely true. Yes it is a great advantage if you are manually minded, but there are other skills which are required if you wish to be successful in the world of plumbing. These skills are necessary for you to be able to work in the physical and social environment which you may find yourself. Most of the time you will be working in tight spaces so you must be able to move your body properly, secondly you will be working in people’s homes or work places so you must be able to function properly in that environment.

The first thing you need to be in order to be a plumber is to be fit. You must be physically able to do the job. This may involve crouching down under sinks or it may involve cranking a spanner hard in order to tighten a stubborn pipe. You may even find yourself having to make the fateful crawl underneath somebody’s house if you find something serious wrong with the plumbing. You may also find yourself working on the roof of a house, so not being afraid of heights would be good too. You will also discover that you may have to be creative with different parts of your body to do a job. Your body is the best tool.

Another skill which people usually don’t think a plumber would need is communication skills. You need to be able to talk to your customers about the problems in order for you to gain useful hints about what is wrong. You must then be able to tell the customer just what the problem is, just how you are going to fix it and how much it is going to cost them. You must be able to make it clear to them about the details of the job or your reputation will suffer or your customer will feel  cheated. It is not a good thing if a miscommunication occurs and someone complains about you. Reputation is what counts in your plumbing job and one complaint can spread like wildfire amongst the community.

So if you are able to move your body in creative ways to get a job done, and you are able to communicate what it is you need to do, then maybe you have what it takes to be a cracking plumber. However, you must make sure that these skills, especially the fitness is maintained because it can go at any time and it will take your job with it.
