Taken for granted

mp1969 Member Posts: 226
All to often our profession is taken for granted not only by outsiders but by ourselves. We must periodically remind ourselves that we our involved in one of the noblest and important professions on earth. Water is truly the single most important resource that exists!
Whether working with it for consumption,waste removal or ultimate comfort makes no difference.The way we handle it,contain it,direct it,alter it and use it with respect is simply amazing.
Many of us grew up with this resource and had great mentors to guide us. Others jumped at the opportunity to work efficiently with this natural wonder. All are to be applauded.
The past decade has witnessed countless attempts to receive proper compensation for our very important work.
Many modified or supposively new ideas have surfaced to present ourselves in ways to get both more respect and monetary rewards. This I believe takes care of itself if you are competant,willing to continually learn, and truly love this industry.
The rewards come in more ways than just money, there is great personal satisfaction in putting together and maintaining plumbing and wet heating puzzles! I and I am sure many others are proud to be part of this industry!
With the fall rush in full gear and limited time to communcate with my two finger typing technique I would like to say thanks! I am extremely thankful for this site where we can exchange ideas ,our experiences and periodically debate. The creator of this site is blessed with foresight and intelligence. The participants are truly professionals and I value this(as we all should).
A very Happy Thanksgiving to those who all to often are taken for granted!

    The key ..

    I feel the key to keeping this alive ...is to show the younger people in the industry where we came from , and where we're going . More importantly , show them that they CAN love their job !(I know that's why I'm here) The monitary rewards will come if they show the drive to "do it right".

    I would also like to thank Dan for giving us this forum . It has spawned a tool for the people who know how to use it .

    Now ... ON TO WETSTOCK ! See everyone for breakfast . Chris

    water and oil

    First of all, I'd like to thank all the contributors here who help me with my rookie questions. Having built radiant into my dome home, I am happy to have a resource such as this to come to. Now, how many of you have heard of the theory of a man named Kunkel? I believe it is a rational explanation, and if it is true, it should make you all even more proud of your profession. Check the link out to see what I mean.


    Happy Holidays!
