A Master Plumber is a type of professional who has specialized training in the plumbing industry. They are highly qualified to deal with problems involving the heating, water supply, and electrical systems in homes, both old and new. There are many plumbers who work for plumbing companies, which tend to specialize in one type of repair or problem, and this is generally where the term “Master Plumber” is applied. As a result, there can be a high degree of variation in pay between various plumbers, so understanding what kind of services a plumber can perform for you is very important before deciding to employ them for any plumbing job.
A plumbing task that might be the responsibility of a master plumber is installing gas appliances such as furnaces and stoves. He might also be called upon to install cable wiring and various gas pipelines, in addition to handling other plumbing jobs. If you are having a house built or planning to have one constructed, it is a good idea to get a plumber to take a look at your plans to ensure that the plumbing system is up to code. In the construction industry, as much as 80% of all pipeline jobs need to be approved by a master plumber. Having a plumber inspect your pipes, especially before a major construction project takes place, can save a lot of money and time in the long run, ensuring that the project will go on smoothly and will end up as promised.
Finally, when it comes to appliances such as furnaces and stoves, a master plumber is also in a unique position to provide tips on the best way to maintain these appliances for life. For example, most people think that keeping an appliance serviced and free of rust is something that a plumber can do. Not so! Unless he or she is experienced in handling oil, gas, and other liquids, a plumber should not be allowed to start up an oil furnace or fuel line until he or she is fully licensed to do so. It is simply not safe for a non-licensed plumber to start a fuel line or oil furnace and if caught doing so could result in serious fines or even jail time.
