My name is Mike. At university, I studied ancient Rome. During my studies, I was fascinated by the plumbing systems which were used by people thousands of years ago to transport water and waste around the city. After university, my interest in plumbing remained, so I decided to take some evening classes to learn modern plumbing techniques. I now enjoy carrying out plumbing repairs around my home, fixing pipes and unblocking sinks and helping friends and family if they have a plumbing disaster. I decided to start this blog to share my love of plumbing and to pass on some of my knowledge.
