Thank a plumber; they help keep things going, by Norma Jeanne Pinney | Letters To The Editor

If you’ve ever taken a hot shower, enjoyed an air-conditioned home, used a washing machine, or flushed a toilet, please take a moment to thank your local plumbers.

All over the world, people will take a break on March 11th to celebrate World Installation Day and acknowledge that installation is a big part of everyday life. The World Plumbing Council launched this event in 2009 for all of us to reflect on the critical role plumbing has played in protecting public health and improving our quality of life.

In the shadow of the coronavirus, the world is focusing on the health-related importance of plumbing like never before. Proper plumbing saves lives and improves the health of the nation.

However, life without basic plumbing is often associated with a reduced standard of living and serious health consequences. Even today, our world is a place where six out of ten people on this planet earth do not have access to flush toilets or adequate sanitation related to water.

Effective plumbing is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it also plays an important role in helping our environment. With water scarcity and drought rising around the world, a sustainable and energy efficient installation is vital to helping the planet.

We can all make a difference in the sustainability of our planet. It could start with teaching our children the importance of conserving water while they brush their teeth and practice good hand washing. Repair leaks on faucets and toilets to save water. Take shortened showers and turn off the water when washing dishes. Use water-saving hoses when watering gardens. We can save our planet drop by drop!

On this World Installation Day 2021, let’s remember the pioneers, thanking the innovators, and celebrating our local licensed plumbing companies that made our lives better by providing the precious plumbing resources.
