Plumbing & Heating

Plumbers install water, drainage and heating pipes for houses and industrial sites. The tasks can include gas and compressed air pipe installations. Pipes are welded, soft-soldered, hard-soldered, threaded and joined with different fixings. Machine crimping is also used. Pipe bending also requires several techniques. Hand tools, hydraulic tools and sand bending are used. The bending radius and angle are measured.

Fixing pipes to the wall is an essential part of pipe installation. Another important skill is installing visible fittings such as showers, basins and other plumbing installations.
