Top Pros and Cons Of Being A Plumber: Is This The Right Trade For You?

Like with any job, trade, or industry, there are pros and cons. A lot of times, you make your decision based on if the pros outweigh the cons, or vice versa. In this blog, the experts at Hero Home Services cover the top pros and cons of being a plumber so you can ask yourself this very important question: is this the right trade for you?

PROS

1. Job Security

Plumbers are always going to be needed. In fact, they’re in high demand right now so you can rest assured that there will always be jobs available for you.  Many people worry that with all the new technology and advancements, plumbers will eventually be a thing of the past. However, this won’t happen anytime soon. Even with all the new technology on the market today, only an experienced plumber can maintain, install and repair those systems.

2. Great Pay

This is one of those jobs you don’t have to go to college for, which means no student debt. On top of this, you get paid exceptionally well once certified and trained. Most plumbers can earn upwards of $40-60 an hour depending on experience.

3. Career Advancement

A career in plumbing can lead you down many paths. You can start as an apprentice, then move up to a journeyman and eventually become a master plumber. You can even go on to build your own business one day. There’s a lot of opportunity in this field, and a lot of room to grow.

CONS

1. Physically Demanding

Being a plumber is a job that’s physically demanding. You will spend a lot of time on your feet, bending over, and carrying heavy equipment. The silver lining? At least you are staying active! However, this can take quite the toll on your body over time. At Hero Home Services, we recognize this and that’s why we offer Peak Health Lab services. We believe it’s important that you take care of your health. Peak Health Lab offers performance and recovery services, including cutting-edge therapies, such as cryotherapy and an in-house chiropractor.

2. Long Hours

Most plumbers have to work long hours. After all, plumbing issues can arise at any time no matter what time of day or night. However, not every company requires this of their staff. In fact, take Hero Home Services for example. We don’t make our employees work nights, weekends, or holidays, so you can still make it home to have dinner with your family and not stress about working long hours. You pick your schedule!

3. Occupational Risks

Of course with a job that is physically demanding like this one, there are risks. You could hurt yourself on the job by coming into contact with sparks, chemicals, heavy objects, and other hazards. That’s why many companies require plumbers to wear the proper protective gear, such as goggles, earplugs, masks, and gloves. However, companies like Hero Home Services offer excellent benefits that will help in these incidences. These benefits include free medical, dental and vision benefits, along with short-term and long-term disability benefits and free life insurance.
