There’s a lot more different types of materials
Being used as far as the piping:
Stainless, glass, drainage piping, plastic piping.
All the different types of fused-seal types for drainage.
Then you’ve got your basic carbon steel, copper...

They just give us a pile of pipe
And we keep cutting it until it fits.

An engineer gives you the overall picture
Of what he’d like to see
And then he asks you to make it fit.
It’s real easy to make it look good on paper,
It really is.
And then physically being able to do it on the job,
It’s sometimes two different things.
About 90% of it
Is your pride in having a job done right,
A good-looking job.
