All-women plumbing company teaches female homeowners how to make minor repairs.
An all-women plumbing company in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, Canada, is offering female homeowners courses in how to fix common plumbing issues so they don’t have to rely on professionals for help.
The company is offering six, 2-hour courses, beginning in May. The first course will cover how to replace a bathroom faucet and how to maintain a clear basin drain.
Sherri Lee, one of the owners of Small Jobs Plumbing, hopes the repair courses will help support women who feel house-poor and want to save money by doing their own repairs.
The monthly Home Plumbing Repair Courses for Women cost about $50. Each class is open to 10 students.
