Plumbing encompasses the integral system within a building that ensures the distribution of clean potable water for drinking, heating, and washing, and the removal of waste through a series of pipes, drains, valves, and fittings. The term also refers to the skilled trade required for the installation and maintenance of these systems. Originating from the Latin word ‘plumbum,’ signifying lead, the term ‘plumbing’ harks back to the era of Roman lead pipes. It plays a fundamental role in every developed society, contributing significantly to public health and cleanliness. While plumbing is often associated with a single building’s supply and waste systems, it is, in fact, a complex network that stretches beyond to serve multiple buildings and communities on a broader scale.
