I wonder how an American pronounces…
plumber … plumbing
/ˈplʌm-ɚ/ … /ˈplʌm-ɪŋ/
We write: plumber … plumbing
We say: /ˈplʌm-ɚ/… /ˈplʌm-ɪŋ/
There is one written letter that is not pronounced: b.
A plumber fixes plumbing.
Plumbing is the collection of pipes that bring liquid in and out of a building.
A plumber’s helper is a tool that families have at home. When you have a problem, you first try the plumber’s helper… and if that doesn’t work, you have to call a plumber.
If the plumber does a good job, water will flow again from the faucet.
The pictures above are:

2. plumbing /ˈplʌm-ɪŋ/
3. a plumber’s helper /ə-ˈplʌm-ɚz-hɛl-pɚ/
4. a faucet /ə-fɔ-sɪt/
In the U.S., we have a liquid product for stopped-up drains.
Notice that the product is spelled the way we pronounce it.
