Celebrated since 2010, the day is marked with celebrations, competitions, seminars, and activities all around the world to celebrate plumbers.
According to the World Health Organization, around 829,000 people die each year as a result of unsafe drinking water. By 2025, it is expected that half the world’s population will be living in “water-stressed” areas.
“Canadian plumbing and heating manufacturers and distributors provide the products and technologies that deliver clean, safe drinking water as well as comfortable and efficient home heating,” explains the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH). “Modern plumbing and heating products allow Canadians to have fresh, safe running water and warm homes.”
Every year on March 11, social media is flooded with support for local plumbers. A dedicated hashtag is even used to promote the celebration—#WorldPlumbingDay.
To celebrate the special day, CIPH has even provided resources on their website for companies to use on their own company social media accounts or website.
Last year, there was an array of ways that people celebrated plumbers. To see some of the highlights and for more information related to the day, please visit www.worldplumbing.org.
