#1 Education

To become a licensed plumber, one should undergo a lot of years of training. After high school, a vocational course in plumbing must be completed followed by apprenticeship, and an exam to get a license. The student has to pay for all of this and he/she will still remain a beginner. After getting the license, to become a master plumber, a candidate must undergo a lot more training and must pass a lot more exams. As these plumbers are very high in demand these days, the plumbing companies give them fair salaries to keep a skilled plumber in their organization.

#2 Travel

Having a truck at one’s dispose all the time is certainly not cheap. Toronto plumbers usually travel in an insured and stocked truck. Any particular day, a plumber usually travels about 100 miles going from one place to another. The maintenance of these trucks is also not easy, in addition to cost for fuel. Thousands of dollars are usually spent by plumbers in servicing, maintaining and fuelling their trucks.

#3 Staff

A plumbing company is not run by just fixing and installing things. The company needs full-time employees to manage everything besides plumbing in their companies. This staffs does the accounts, attends phone calls, takes queries, solves queries, takes bookings, and advertises their services etc. The front-end which appears so organized and seamless is because of the relentless back-end employees in the offices.

#4 Dangers

Toronto plumbers, even though they make plumbing seem easy, are under a risk all the time. They have to come in contact with dangerous materials regularly. The dangers are far too wide and yet, the brave plumbers do it anyway. They can not only get sick themselves, but will also be a danger to others as they can spread any bacteria they had come across as a part of their job.

#5  Equipment

Even though you can buy tools for plumbing at your local store, those cannot do much when it comes to actual plumbing. Specifically designed tools are a must for any plumber to get a job done. Toronto plumbers have high-end equipment which requires training to use. This equipment costs thousands of dollars and can also go upto a much higher range.
