The day was initiated by the World Plumbing Council to celebrate the importance of plumbing
(PRWEB UK) 9 March 2013
The day was initiated by the World Plumbing Council to celebrate the importance of plumbing in the health and safety of modern society. Recent events including 2010’s Haiti earthquake and the 2011 tsunami in Japan have prompted people not to take for granted the availability of safe drinking water and sanitation. The worldwide event, which highlights the work carried out by the plumbing industry, is a big occasion in countries such as Australia, India and Singapore.
A number of awareness raising events are taking place across the globe to mark the occasion including an attempt to break the record for the longest human towel chain in Australia as well as a specially commissioned song in Singapore. Talks will also be given at a number of primary schools by local World Plumbing Council representatives.
The emergency plumbers at Plumber 24 Hours have been heavily involved within the industry for a number of years. They specialise in providing UK residents with a fast response to all their plumbing issues. As such, the team were pleased to hear about World Plumbing Day and a representative has shared their thoughts on the development of plumbing technology.
“It’s good to see the work conducted by the plumbing industry being recognised. Human advancement is closely linked to plumbing technology and it is thanks to the progression of this that we can start to make conditions better.
“In this country especially, it is easy to take for granted clean water and sufficient sanitation systems, however this is a major concern elsewhere in the world, something that better plumbing can help to alleviate. Here at Plumber 24 Hours we hope that as time goes on World Plumbing gathers more pace and becomes a large part of the annual calendar."
