Val Cunniffe introduced our speaker George Pesnikas as her neighbour and also the plumber that has worked on the recent renovation at her home. George then provided a very interesting and entertaining presentation on the history  of plumbing practices and how plumbing is regulated today. He advised that he chose a career in plumbing because he liked hands-on work.

He referred to the general plumbing areas being water, gas, sanitary plumbing, drainage and roofing. Other branches of plumbing are heating and cooling, medical gas and fire protection. He spoke of the regulated plumbing process of apprenticeship, licencing and individual work certificates.

George provided advice and comment to many questions from the audience. He also elaborated on his engagement at the weekend to his fiancee Paris who was also able to join him at our Club meeting.
