what pipefitter jobs entail
Pipefitters assemble, fabricate, test, maintain, and repair pipelines that carry water, steam, fuel, or chemicals for heating, cooling, lubricating, or other processes. Some workers who install piping to carry water or gas to homes and businesses are called plumbers, while the pipefitter designation is applied to those with a higher level of skill who work with chemicals, acids, or gases.
You may be required to work offsite or on various job sites to complete client building projects. Pipefitters tend to work in an industrial setting if they work for a manufacturing company.
Pipefitters usually report to a foreman or supervisor. If you are part of a special project team, you will report to a team leader.
