A plumber is a tradesperson who specializes in installing and maintaining systems used for potable (drinking) water, sewage, and drainage in plumbing systems. The term dates from ancient times, and is related to the Latin word for lead, "plumbum."
The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire. In Roman times lead was known as '' in Latin (hence the abbreviation of 'Pb' for lead on the periodic table of the elements).
Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes and some were also covered with lead, lead was also used for piping and for making baths.
In medieval times anyone who worked with lead was referred to as a plumber as can be seen from an extract of workmen fixing a roof in Westminster Palace and were referred to as plumbers "To Gilbert de Westminster, plumber, working about the roof of the pantry of the little hall, covering it with lead, and about various defects in the roof of the little hall". Thus a person with expertise in working with lead was first known as a Plumbarius'' which was later shortened to plumber.
