WHAT IS WORLD PLUMBING DAY?

World Plumbing Day is an initiative by the World Plumbing Council and is celebrated around the world every year on March 11. The day aims to spread awareness of the importance of plumbing and plumbers in protecting public health and improving access to clean water and sanitation facilities

WHY CELEBRATE WORLD PLUMBING DAY?

Plumbing is a major part of our everyday routine such as having a shower, getting a glass of water from a tap and flushing the toilet. All of these tasks are possible thanks to trained plumbers and advances in plumbing.
