Welcome...

I learned a long time ago not to question the determination and ability of a woman getting the job done....

lol.. some people just can't leave well enough alone .. So what if a lady wants to plum .. so what if she's 38 or 21 .. I've worked with apprentices that were male and 6'2" 240lbs solid muscle, that could not dig **** .. or haul stuff around .. had to pick up there slack and help them along the way .. what makes the fact that she is a lady any different .. I say good on yea , want or need Plumbing IS a good job ... pays well and is gratifying .. as long as you can stand the rest of the negativity in the trade you'll do fine ..

Welcome to the Zone ..

By the way my wife ran our plumbing business for 20-years and has now worked with my forensic business for 12-years. She has trained more than one plumber to do locating work.

From what I've seen at least around here we are in dyer need of serious, intelligent plumbers commited to excellence. Why is that so hard to find these days. On a side note there's a HVAC/metal shop in town owened and operated by a woman. Her husband died early in his life, she kept the business running and does very well actually. Fully licensed of course.

One of the best apprentices I have had was a girl. Worked harder and with less complaining than most.

Hats off to ya for making a go of it in an industry that is not female friendly.

May not be the norm, but it is by no means unprecedented for women to be plumbers (and good ones at that). There is a plumbing company owned and operated by a very competent female service trained plumber here in OKC. Here's a few more:
