Drain Technicians vs. Our Licensed Plumbers

When a plumbing issue like a clogged drain or septic problem strikes your home, who do you call? Whether you search online or in the phone book, you are sure to come across two options to solve your problem. Some companies may use “Drain Technicians” but Four Seasons only employs licensed and experienced plumbers. While the difference between these two positions may not be obvious at first, the difference in quality after a job is sure to show through.

Drain Tech vs. Plumber Qualifications

  • Drain Technician: A drain technician is not a plumber, and so does not need years of training and schooling in order to hold the title. Look up job listings for drain technicians and see what they require. Here are just a few commonalities we have seen.
    • Plumbing Experience preferred: Most companies hiring drain technicians do not even require their employees to have the previous plumbing experience. The drain technician coming to your home could have minimal or be complete without experience doing the job you’re paying for.
  • Licensed Plumbers: Now, let’s compare the common drain technician job requirements to that of a licensed plumber at Four Seasons.
    • Plumbing Experience Required: In order to even be considered for a position as a Four Seasons plumber, the applicant must have at minimum two years of field experience as a fully licensed plumber.
    • Current Plumbing License: Acquiring a plumbing license is no easy feat. After 4 years of experience in an apprenticeship program that involves hands-on instruction, field training, and shadowing, the applicant for a license must also pass a written licensing exam.

When it is all said and done, a licensed plumber at Four Seasons has at minimum spent six years training and working in the field before entering your home. There is simply no comparison between the skilled professionals at Four Seasons and a drain technician at any company anywhere.
