With a growing focus on green technologies, water conservation and energy efficiency, the demand for plumbers will increase significantly in the years ahead. Plumbers are trained to do everything from digging trenches for new pipelines, to installing hardware for faucets, showers and lavatories in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
