The Top 5 Plumbing Podcasts for Technicians and Business Owners

Put that windshield time to use! These plumbing podcasts will help your business reach the next level.

The plumbing industry is continually evolving. With every new trend, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep up with the latest and greatest. As a plumbing technician or business owner, you have to offer your customers the top of the line service that they have come to expect. Are your services green? Do you offer “smart-home” compatible options? Do your plumbers know how to put your environmentally conscious customers at ease?

And what about all the business considerations outside of pipes and seals? For example, you can’t grow past a certain point without marketing your business. The plumbing industry will always remain ultra-competitive. You need to ensure that potential customers can find your company and its offerings.

So, where do you turn to learn this information? While some may turn to search engines, not everyone has time to read through lengthy blog posts and articles to gather the best data on running a plumbing company. Luckily, there is an alternative: podcasts! The great thing about podcasts? You can listen while doing other things. In some cases, you can even listen while driving to or performing a plumbing job.
