Plumber's Helper

Plumber’s helpers assist plumbers, pipefitters, steamfitters or pipelayers by performing duties requiring less skill. Their duties include using, supplying or holding materials or tools and cleaning work area and equipment. Helpers measure, cut, thread and assemble new pipe, cut or drill holes in walls or floors to accommodate the passage of pipes, repair and replace fixtures and water heaters, locate, repair or remove leaking or broken pipes, and assist pipe fitters in the layout, assembly, and installation of piping for air, ammonia, gas and water systems.
