We have Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day but did you know we have a World Plumbing Day. To most March 11 is just another day on the calendar but to those in the Plumbing Industry, it is a day that is celebrated. In 2010, the World Plumbing Council established World Plumbing Day which is now recognised on the calendars of social institutions around the globe.
With many annual events happening on World Plumbing Day, it is helping to promote the link between good plumbing sanitation and human and environmental health.
Today is a day to be thankful for our modern-day plumbing, good plumbing is not just a nice thing to have to keep your bathroom looking pretty. Would you believe that many people around the world still do not have the same access to clean, running water and sanitation that we unfortunately sometimes take for granted.
Modern-day Plumbing is by far the safest and quickest way to maintain and protect your health. The bathroom plays a significant role in maintaining our health all around the world. Everybody understands the role of sanitized, plumbing solutions to cut germs in their paths.
World Plumbing Day Facts:

Make hygiene your top priority today!
Did you know that if everybody washed their hands after a toilet break, the risk of catching diseases would be almost non-existent? With the current growing concerns over Covid-19, there is a reason why we were taught as children to wash our hands after going to the bathroom. It ensures that you can wash potentially harmful bacteria away.
We are not saying that we catch diseases only in the bathroom, but most of our usual stomach bugs, flu, and other infectious viruses could be contained with proper hand washing techniques!
Why not organise a professional plumber to inspect your pipes for potential clog risks? You can also include sewer inspection to avoid bad surprises when your sewer pipes suddenly clog up!
