The need for Plumbing Services arises for maintenance of public health and environmental requirements emanating from the water industry and the need for proper sanitation, of the many key activities carried out in the construction sector, plumbing is one of the main constituents which also has a direct linkage with other ancillary industries manufacturing plumbing related products viz. water treatment, sewage and drainage, fire safety, supply of gas, heating and cooling systems, industrial waste management, air-conditioning etc.
The size of plumbing sector is directly proportional to the size of the construction sector; it is around 10% of the size of construction industry.
