Pipe fitting is a skilled job which usually takes a lengthy apprenticeship in order to learn all of the commonly used techniques. The skills required by pipe fitters to bend pipes can be applied to plumbing and gas engineering as well as ducting and air-conditioning. However, many of the bending processes and technologies used are common to all of these disciplines. DIY pipe fitting is often undertaken in Australia for plumbing, but it is often better to call upon a professional when pipes need to be fitted into small recesses and where awkward turns and junctions need to be accommodated with bends.
