Buried within the walls and beneath any home, apartment building, office complex, school, or other structure is a complex world of pipes and other systems that make modern life possible. This book introduces, describes, and distinguishes the three related but distinct occupations of plumber, pipefitter, and steamfitter. It provides invaluable guidance on how to follow a path to these jobs. From taking the right classes in high school early on, through trade school, to entry-level apprenticeships, this useful and informative work is a must for anyone interested in three trades that are critical to our collective health, sanitation, and comfort.
