History of word
The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire. The Latin for lead is plumbum. Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes and some were also covered with lead, lead was also used for piping and for making baths.5 In medieval times anyone who worked with lead was referred to as a plumber as can be seen from an extract of workmen fixing a roof in Westminster Palace and were referred to as plumbers "To Gilbert de Westminster, plumber, working about the roof of the pantry of the little hall, covering it with lead, and about various defects in the roof of the little hall".6 Thus a person with expertise in working with lead was first known as a Plumbarius which was later shortened to plumber.
The scope of work includes running small hydraulic repair and counteract the negative effects of large hydraulic failure including, for example, one part of the city. Then in his work co-operate with the fire department, which deals with pumping water from flooded premises or the flooded area of the city. In such a situation, plumbers, first assess the damage done plumbing, and then deal with their valuation and inform the owners of the premises or the city authorities of its findings. Only on this basis can take care of carrying out the necessary repairs. Normally plumbers work from Monday to Friday or Saturday, but in emergency situations may proceed to carry out their work even on Sundays.
Putting water and sewage network for use

Putting water and sewage networks to use may take place after its detailed examination by different specialists. The administrator of the building depends on the fact that the network of water and sewage in the block, for which he is responsible has been operational for many years and did not have to carry it some complicated repairs. In addition, from time to time perform reviews of water and sewage networks in the block, which is required by law. Sometimes, however, there is a large block of hydraulic failure, which must be repaired by the entire human.
