Plumbing Podcast
Plumbing is probably the most widely-used of our technologies that gets taken for granted on a daily basis. Nobody ever thinks about how often you come to rely on accessibility to clean, safe water and the removal of waste water. Plumbing is, put simply, integral to our modern quality of life.

PCA's Plumbing Podcast was launched in 2016 to educate the industry on better practices, products and ways that you as a contractor can increase productivity. Over the course of the year, we will have guests that include industry experts, owners and manufacturers. Listen in (almost) weekly to stay up-to-date on the latest podcast.

You can access the Podcast in one of several ways. Subscribe to the Podcast and you'll receive notifications when new episodes have been posted. You can access the Plumbing Podcast directly from Soundcloud. Or, you can follow the link below to listen to episodes directly from this PCA website.

Enjoy! And if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Sean McGuire.
