A plumber, according to Dictionary.com, is a person who installs and repairs pipes. These pipes might bring water into a home, and sewage waste out of the home. A plumber might also install pipes to bring natural gas or propane into the home to power various heating devices. The word “plumber” derives from the Latin word “plumbum” which means lead. The associate probably derives from the ancient Roman practice of making water pipes out of lead, because lead does not rust. Of course, those lead pipes (along with lead seals on wine) could have been responsible for some of the very odd behavior of those who could afford running water in their homes. Fortunately for those old Romans, it is believed that calcification inside the pipes quickly lined the lead pipes, sealing the toxic substance away from those who imbibed the water. After World War II, lead pipes fell into disuse, and copper became the preferred metal for plumbing. In some areas in the United States, pioneers used hollowed logs to bring water to homes. Modern plumbing materials include PVC piping of various grades, and even an expandable pipe which resists freezing damage.
