Plumb means to measure the approximate or exact depth of something. A professional who specializes in this kind of work is called a plumber. To plumb may also mean to conform to the specific direction as pointed out by a plumb line. It could also indicate something that is perfectly vertical. For instance 'The tower is way out of plumb'. It may also mean exactly like for example 'She fell plumb in the middle of that puddle'.

A plumber is usually employed to either install or maintain systems that are necessary for sewage, drinking water, drainage, air conditioning, heating or venting. In addition they may also be called in to repair or install fittings, fixtures and all other kinds of plumbing equipment. A skilled plumber usually acquires expertise after many years of experience.

Plumb is also the assumed name of Christian music artist Tiffany Arbuckle Lee. She came into the limelight in 2000 when her album 'Candycoatedwaterdrops' won 'Modern Rock Album of the Year' at the Dove Awards.
