plumbers handbooks




Licensed plumbers must demonstrate their competence as installers of plumbing systems to an official executing board prior to being issued a license. A plumbing code, which is created to ensure safety and efficiency, is worthless if not observed and enforced. The issuance of a plumbing license by a community specifies that the holder is a qualified professional and that their technical knowledge is sufficient to maintain the standards of these codes.


Additionally, licensed plumbing professionals are held to a certain standard of accountability – meaning they must perform their work correctly or risk being liable for accidents, damages, illnesses, etc. caused by improperly performed jobs – and must often hold some form of bonding or insurance that can help to protect you in the event of something happening.
