2. Professional Knee-Pads.
The plumbing profession is heavily demanding on knees because logically, it’s the easiest way to reach under the kitchen or bathroom sink. However, this comes with a price. Most plumbers suffer from knee pain either due to the lack of kneepads or due to the use of poor-quality kneepads.
