    what was the hardest part of learning to be a plumber?as some of you know i started working with a plumbing company just over a week ago and they put me on the crew hooking up sewer taps to the house and the water service from the meter.so far i think this is pretty easy and i know it will only get harder from here so please tell me at what point it will be that i will start to wonder why i am doing what i am doing???

    The hardest part is remembering to think about why it is your doing something a certain way. Too many guys just watch those who are training them and do not try to understand the fundamentals. Many of those who are now doing the training were trained by people who didn't know how to do it either. Once you learn to think plumbing it should come to you a little easier. If you are not in a Union program I would recommend picking up a current code book and illustrated training manual.
