Plumbing

Plumbing (from the Latin plumbum for lead as pipes were once made from lead) is the skilled trade of working with pipes, tubing and plumbing fixtures for drinking water systems and the drainage of waste. A plumber is someone who installs or repairs piping systems, plumbing fixtures and equipment such as water heaters. The plumbing industry is a basic and substantial part of every developed economy due to the need for clean water, and proper collection and transport of wastes.

Standardized earthen plumbing pipes with broad flanges making use of asphalt for preventing leakages appeared in the urban settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization by 2700 B.C.  Plumbing originated during the ancient civilizations such as the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, and Chinese civilizations as they developed public baths and needed to provide potable water, and drainage of wastes. Improvement in plumbing systems was very slow, with virtually no progress made from the time of the Roman system of aqueducts and lead pipes until the 19th century. Eventually the development of separate, underground water and sewage systems eliminated open sewage ditches. (Source: Wikipedia)

Today, plumbing is seeing rapid changes in materials and technology.  The demands of a growing society place stresses on the available resources.  Plumbing is a leading area in the Green, Sustainable movement.  Using water efficiently is key for urban growth.

AMCI’s Plumbing Department is skilled in the installation of waste, vent, storm water and potable water systems for all commercial and industrial projects.  We regularly perform projects ranging from a single fixture installation to a complete new school.
