Royal Flush Plumbing is here to advise you on reasons to get into the rewarding trade of plumbing.
- A Great and Steady Income
In general, the trades provide the opportunity for a quality lifestyle and a well-funded retirement. But, more specifically, plumbing allows one to have a consistent income. The need for plumbers is kind of like the need for doctors – everyone everywhere will always need them. Being a plumber offers you a certain level of security: a good plumber can always find employment, and the job can’t be outsourced! Most plumbers with a good amount of experience have the potential to earn over 6 figures annually. Becoming a licensed plumber will also allow you to earn a good salary in all economic climates.
- High Demand
More recently, there will be a higher demand in plumbers everywhere. Many older plumbers are going into retirement and there is and will continue to be a demand for replacements. Developing towns and cities also create a high demand for skilled plumbers, such as the Hamilton area. The trades offer the unique opportunity to “Earn while you learn” with apprenticeship programs and on the job training. Why spend $50,000 on college when you can earn that while learning a profession?
- Personal benefits
As a plumber, you’ll always be keeping your body and mind active. All in a day’s work, you will be analyzing problems and developing solutions whilst keeping your mind sharp, and your body active and healthy! Plus, you’d never have to worry about another plumbing bill.

As a plumber, you’ll experience loads of interaction with real people, rather than being trapped inside an office all day. You have the opportunity to meet new people and see new faces everyday. If you like social interaction and enjoy a good conversation, you will be able to create good impressions on customers, that may result in people referring others to your work, and in turn, bring in more business and make good money!
