March 11, 2015 – Edmond, Oklahoma – Since 2010, the World Plumbing Council (WPC) has designated March 11 as World Plumbing Day. The aim of the Day is to raise awareness about the critical role which today’s plumbing industry plays in relation to public health and the health of our planet and the environment.
Many people in developed countries take the work of the plumber for granted. Plumbing is often seen as a nuisance purchase when things go wrong. Public perception of the plumber can be less than positive and many people see the plumber as the person who unblocks drains, fixes leaks and mends heating systems.
On World Plumbing Day 2015, plumbing organizations throughout the world are engaging in activities to celebrate the industry’s contribution and to raise awareness that the industry is important. Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect, Inc., who installs Nu Drain, an innovative green technology to rehabilitate the inner infrastructure of deteriorated or failing piping systems using cured-in-place epoxy has given a list of tips to follow this world plumbing day (and every day) to conserve water and prevent contamination:
- Automatically shut off a tap when not in use
- Use minimum water for daily needs
- Harvest rainwater
- Keep freshwater uncontaminated by inspecting drain pipes
- Ensure leaks are attended to promptly by no dig repair
In many developing countries, plumbing is either very limited or even non-existent and the lack of an effective plumbing infrastructure is a huge factor in the tragic statistics, which show that an unacceptably high proportion of the world population does not have access to safe water or to effective sanitation systems. The World Health Organisation’s estimate that over 3 million children under the age of 5 die each year due to water related diseases is shocking and simple plumbing solutions could make all the difference in saving lives.
In reality, professional plumbing, properly installed and maintained is critical in ensuring that our health is protected. Unsafe water supply systems within buildings and ineffective sanitation could, and sadly does, lead to significant health problems and even death. With an increasing global focus on climate change, the plumbing industry is again a major player whether in relation to water conservation, use and reuse issues or in the installation and maintenance of equipment using renewable sources of energy.
