What does a sanitation engineer do?
Sanitation engineers are responsible for the comfort of cold and warm water installations.
This could be in the bathroom, kitchen or washing machine, etc. They lay all the required lines for water, wastewater and gas in the shell construction. They install fittings such as bathtubs, washbasins, shower trays, etc. once the lines have been bricked up. They work to hygienically direct used water towards sewage treatment plants. They perform their work independently with skill, energy efficiency and care for the environment and are equipped with practical and manual skills. On the construction site, they coordinate their work with other construction professionals. Their tasks also include servicing, maintenance and repair work on the various sanitation installations.
