World Plumbing Day

March 11 is World Plumbing Day, an international event to recognize the important role plumbing plays in society.

Every time you grab a glass of water, have a shower or flush a toilet, it is possible thanks to innovations plumbing.

Many people in developed countries throughout the world take plumbing for granted. We simply turn on a tap and get clean water. Flushing toilets are standard in many countries.

Little thought is given to the engineering expertise provided by plumbers ensuring these systems operate as intended. Just as equally, few people appreciate the consequences of bad plumbing.

In developing countries, on the other hand, plumbing is either nonexistent or at best very basic. People suffer serious health consequences, and millions of people die as a result of lack of access to clean water and ineffective sanitation.

Quick Facts:

  • Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease
  • 1 billion people do not have access to safe water supplies
  • 6 billion people do not have access to improved sanitation
  • 1 million children die each year from water-related diseases

Today we recolonize the people who have made our standard of living possible. Remember that without a  qualified plumber your ability to run a tap, or flush a toilet in your home or office wouldn’t be possible.

There are a few quick things you can do on March 11:

  • Short Shower
  • Fill up the dishwasher fully before running
  • Don’t let the water run while you brush your teeth
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to tidy outside
