Born To Be A Plumber

I Was Born To Be A Plumber!

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Have you ever met someone that was born to do something? Maybe that person was a plumber, electrician, or auto mechanic? As I start to get older, I have the privilege of seeing young men and women earn their degrees, sign up for the electrical unions, or start their training to become a plumber. The ironic thing is, only 27% of college graduates work in a job that’s related to their major. 80% of college students end up changing their major at least once. It’s all about finding our way in life, and whether you choose college or trade, it’s all honorable work. I met a manager at a plant nursery the other day who ended up in the business world after college. He said, ” I was making six figures, but I wasn’t happy.” He went on to tell me, “I wanted to be outside and not behind a computer, so I started over and began a trade-in nursery management.” I told him it was all about the journey.

It’s Who I Am, My Calling, My Life, And My World

At Big B’s Plumbing, we have plumbers that started from the bottom and now have successful plumbing careers. They were just born to be a plumber. The plumbers we have far exceed the skills to repipe a house or install a trenchless sewer line. They also have strong people skills, good manners, articulate in speech, as well as all the plumbing skills. I saw a sweatshirt on Amazon the other day that pretty much summed it up. It said, “I was born to be a plumber, to fix, to maintain, to help, to build, to inform, it’s who I am, my calling, my life, and my world.”

Some Have A Passion For What They Do

Some strictly work for money, and then there are those that have a passion to do what they do. Yes, we all have to put food on the table, but it’s nice to see people that work for the love of their trade. There are no free rides to become a plumbing contractor.

Plumbing Requirements:

  • Undergo a thorough criminal background check

The exams are on the following topics:

  • Rough-in Plumbing Systems
  • Service, Repair, and Remodel Plumbing Systems

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
