So you have a problem with your facilities and you’re wondering who to call. If it is a plumbing problem and you live in the Washington DC metro area, you should most certainly call Elias and Son Plumbing, LLC.

But what is plumbing, what do plumbers do, and when should I call a plumber?

What is plumbing?

Plumbing is the system of pipes, drains, fittings, valves, and fixtures installed for the distribution of potable water for drinking, heating and cooling, washing, and waterborne waste removal.

What plumbers do

Plumbers install and maintain those systems used to convey potable (drinking) water to your home or business, and move sewage and drainage off-site. Plumbing work can include new and repaired piping, drinking fountains, bathroom facilities, hydronic heating and cooling systems, etc. The word plumber comes from the Latin word for lead, plumbum. Lead was used extensively to manufacture pipes in times past.
