  14. pump is need for every house. Their occupation rotates around keeping up and introducing channel systems. The individual who keeps up and repairs the channel arrangement of consumable water, sewerage, seepage, and ventilation are alluded to as handymen. They additionally introduce, keep up, and repair the funnels that convey water from civil water treatment plant to the houses.
