Job Options

Those who complete plumbing education programs can find jobs as general plumbers, pipefitters, or sprinkler fitters. Below are descriptions of these careers and information about their similarities and differences.

Plumber

Plumbers install, repair and maintain systems for transporting water, sewage, and gas. Plumbers who work for construction companies hook up and install a building’s plumbing and water systems to the available municipal or other water supply, adhering to codes and using a variety of tools and measurements to ensure accuracy. Those who work for plumbing repair companies visit homes and businesses to repair water, sewer, and plumbing systems, fix sinks or toilets, or replace worn or broken pipes.

Pipefitter

Pipefitters work with high- and low-pressure pipe systems used in manufacturing, power generation, and heating and cooling systems. They install and maintain these specialized systems and work on the control systems that allow for their operation and monitoring. Some pipefitters specialize in one particular area, such as the movement of high-pressure liquids or gases. Unlike plumbers, their sole concern is the proper functioning of pipes and their connections.

Sprinkler fitter

Sprinkler fitters are specialized pipefitters who work only with the installation and maintenance of automatic fire sprinkler systems. They are typically employed during construction of commercial buildings or large apartment buildings that are required by law or code to feature automatic sprinkler systems. They might also be called into repair or service systems after installation.
