What is pipe fitter and why is it any different from a plumber. OK go ahead a throw me to the dogs for not knowing, cause I don't get it.
Pipe fitters work on piping that has nothing to do with potable water or sewage, like process piping, gas pipeline work, coolant piping for power generation stations, etc.What is pipe fitter and why is it any different from a plumber.

To some extent, depends on the project really, I ran quite a few new high rise projects, and none of them were piped to the architects specs, but rather to my drawings, the fitters doing the heating and cooling operate under the same principal.So is pipe fitting mainly engineered like paint by numbers.
Agreed, I spent a few years pipefitting on the oilsands plants in Fort McMurray. Not bad work, I prefer plumbing. A plumber can always work as a fitter. A fitter needs school to work as a plumber.Its hard to turn a pipe-fitter into a plumber, but a plumber could make the transition very easily.
