Sunday, 11th March, 2018 is World Plumbing Day. So what does that mean? What is World Plumbing Day?

World Plumbing Day was established to promote the link between good plumbing sanitation and human and environmental health.

Running since 2010, World Plumbing Day and the plumbing community has a vital role in promoting the link between good quality plumbing, health, environmental sustainability and, increasingly, economic prosperity.

This particular day is marked by celebrations, competitions, seminars, and activities around the world. This provides to opportunity for people within the industry, as well as the wider community, to come together to learn, share knowledge, build connections and find opportunities to collaborate to improve the quality of, and access to, fresh water and safe sanitation.
