So we all have a brief idea on what plumbers do technically speaking, but how can we explain what they do holistically? They are trained in the skill of installing and repairing water lines and pipes, waste disposal systems and all the appliances in your home that must have water to run sufficiently. Plumbing is a highly demanding job both physically and time wise. Plumbers are called at any time of the day or night to attend to a variety of issues and emergencies. Plumbers are well versed in solving problem with relation to underground pipes and drains, and even hidden items and creatures that might be stuck or lodged in your facilities!
But do not pity the plumber for his lack of boundaries, plumbers are one of the highest paid professionals in the construction industry. They do work day and night but they also charge handsomely for their services. Plumbers have been known to charge their customers anywhere between R 350 to R 1000 per call out session, depending on what the job entails, and how they need to solve the issue. Emergencies and after hour calls are at an additional cost to this fee, and will also depend on what the client needs. With this estimation we can expect a plumber to make upwards of R 9000 a month excluding commission and added extras. Factoring in their hours per week, which are usually 40 hours a week, a plumber could make R 1000 a day just on hour long jobs.
