Default New Member from Ontario Canada

Hello, my name is Andrew Friesen and I am a new member. I am from Coldwater Ontario and am a third year plumbing apprentice. My interest and passion for pluming started 13 years ago in high school when I worked with a residential irrigation company in Winnipeg Manitoba. I worked for this company for three summers and gained familiarity with residential irrigation installation, maintenance, and materials.

After high school I earned a degree in business because I wasnít sure what career path I wanted to choose. During the summers I worked for a commercial irrigation company in Edmonton Alberta who also installed above ground sewage systems for temporary buildings for oil and gas camps in Northern Alberta. This was my first introduction into the world of actual plumbing, at least the DWV side of plumbing. Most of the employees were Journeymen plumbers so I was able to be around professional plumbers. It was a lot of awesome work experience as we installed commercial irrigation for golf courses, sports complexes, baseball diamonds, soccer fields etc.

After Alberta my wife and I moved to Ontario to be closer to family. It was at this point that I decided to take the plunge into a career in plumbing. I realized that I didnít actually know much about plumbing even though I had been around aspects of the trade the last 12 years. I am now a third year apprentice and am loving it. Here are the areas of expertise that we work in.

Custom Home Plumbing installation
Residential & Commercial Plumbing renovations
Well pump and service installation/maintenance
Eone grinder pump installation and maintenance
Water treatment

These past three years have been a whirlwind. The company I work for is just my boss and myself as his apprentice so I am gaining incredible experience in the plumbing trade. From day one I have studied the code for Ontario plumbing and enthusiastically try to learn about every new technique or piece of equipment we install and service. I have a lifetime of learning ahead but am happy that I get to be on the tools right from the start for rough in's and finishing. I am passionate about water and being helpful to my community with the work I do. I look forward to being part of Plumbing Zone and learning lots. Thanks
