March 11th is World Plumbing Day!

Good plumbing gets taken for granted in much of the western world. It happens behind the walls, underground, automatically. It’s only when something goes wrong that people stop and take notice.

That’s why The World Plumbing Council designated March 11th as World Plumbing Day — a time to stop and reflect on the importance of plumbing in protecting the health and safety of communities around the world. Given the ongoing drought in the Western U.S. and the continuing crisis in Flint, Michigan, World Plumbing Day 2016 has an added level of significance.

Here is a gallery of some ways you can get involved this Friday, March 11th 2016. For more information, visit The site has a calendar of events, and promotional materials you can download and use to help spread the word.
