Top 5 skills every Ajax plumbing guru needs to know

Gone are the days when plumbers were simply experts in pipes, clogs and drains.

Over the past decade, we’ve seen the world of plumbing come by by leaps and bounds. With the introduction of new technology across the industry, quality plumbers must have an incredibly diverse skill set – and of course a good mastery of the old plunger.

But in all seriousness, if you want to make it in the world of plumbing, you need to be good.

And if you want to make it in the plumbing world in Ajax?

Well, you must be great.

So, without further ado – the top five skills each Ajax plumbing guru must know.

1. Troubleshooting

I know this first skill can be seen as an obvious one, but that doesn’t make it any less important.

Ajax is a city that has grown at a rapid pace since the end of the Second World War. As a result, it has been filled to the brim with a variety of residences – some built as early as 1910 and others as early as 2021.

This means that as a plumber at Ajax you have to deal with a wide spectrum of homes on a daily basis.

Guess what?

A good number of these will have plumbing so old that they are no longer taught in trade school, or so new that they are not yet in trade school – which is why you should Solving a problem.

To make it in this business you need to be able to think critically and assess any situation from multiple angles. You need to come up with effective solutions to problems you didn’t know existed.

And without the ability to do this, you might as well take your business elsewhere.

2. Install a thermostatic mixing valve

It would be hard to find an older home that not need a bathroom renovation.

And Ajax is full to the brim of older homes.

With the population growth that Ajax has experienced since the early 2000s, there is an increased demand for renovated homes. As a result, the number of bathroom renovations that take place every year has gone through the roof.

And with this has come the popularity of thermostatic mixing valves.

As simple as they seem in theory (I mean all they do is put hot water and cold water together…), their installation can present some unique problems, especially in homes with old and outdated plumbing.

Therefore, this skill is something you should prioritize if you are an Ajax plumber.

3. Strength and Endurance

Whether you are plumbing a new home or renovating an old bathroom, rest assured it will be tough work. And when this happens in a growing area full of big houses and big buildings, this job becomes even more difficult.

That is why as a plumber at Ajax you have to take good care of yourself.

Actively participating in a form of physical activity that improves muscle strength and endurance is integral to getting the most out of your workday while avoiding work-related injuries – ensuring your success in the industry in the process.

So I’ll say it again: take care of yourself.

4. Dealing with frozen pipes

Ajax is really beautiful all summer. Warm, green and sunny, there are few other places in Canada you’d rather be.

Then it starts to cool down a bit…

And by winter you look in the course of freezing temperatures for three consecutive months. With this rapid drop in temperature comes a massive increase in the number of frozen pipes residents experience – many of which will be within an interior wall.

All this means you better be prepared.

So if you don’t feel comfortable crawling into walls and defrosting pipes on a regular basis, Ajax plumbing may not be for you.

But if this is in your skills, you will thrive.

5. Plumbing passion

Let’s face it – the plumbing industry in Ajax is booming right now.

There is more work than we can handle. Which means if you’re a plumber in this busy region of Ontario, you’re going to do some work. You can expect long days, demanding clientele and more often than not complex plumbing issues.

As such, it is imperative that you love plumbing if you want to make it in the industry.

This is not to say that you should put your job above everything else (which is silly) – but rather that you should have a real passion for the plumbing trade, because you will be doing a lot of it.

This is the key to job satisfaction, job satisfaction and not getting burned out at work.

Passion = result.

Especially in sanitary.
