New member!!!!
I started my career off as a pipe fitter out of high school. Go tired of traveling and did new construction for the past decade. Roughed in too many homes and septic systems to count. Got into service work the past 4 years and haven't looked back. The company I work for mainly does all commercial service work. Walmart, fam dollar, bojangles, housing authority, numerous retirement homes. Discovered the fact that just because you can rough in new home doesn't make you a great service plumber. Lol My home state of South Carolina doesn't offer jack **** as far as continuing ed or any real notable plumbing pedigrees. I love my trade and envy the Northeasts tradesman/ union gigs. It's like the wild west as far as plumbers go here. Any tom dick harry thinks they are plumbers here.

Started off as a pipe fitter and got tired of the traveling. Starting roughing in homes and new construction for the past decade. Been doing service work the past 4 years and have nt looked back. Company I work for mainly does commercial service work only. Love the trade. Options are limited in South Carolina though. Found out that just because you can rough a home in doesn't make you a great service plumber! Really wished that the south had more options as far as education goes in the plumbing field. I envy the tristate area and there programs they have for licensing. Buddy of mine said that in Mass it's a 4 year program.

Welcome! Off to a great start.

Ex employee of mine moved to SC (Charleston) and started his business there. He seems to be doing great.

I did new const. plumbing for the 1st {5} years in this trade and then went into service work; I learned the same thing. Almost, not quite, but it's almost like {2} different trades.
