Freshwater is an infinite supply on Earth, and the key to life is, without question, our planet’s most precious natural resource. The plumbing industry recognizes the tenuous balance humanity must maintain to guarantee its very existence and embraces efforts to ensure we are preserving every drop possible.
Many of these efforts are well-publicized, and countless others go largely unnoticed. Part of the reason for establishing 11 March as World Plumbing Day is to educate the general public about the work the plumbing industry performs every day to conserve the world’s increasingly overstretched drinking water sources and promote energy efficiency and the increased use of renewable sources of energy.
The professional plumbing industry is poised to make significant contributions to all aspects of water conservation and water reuse. This skill set already exists and can be enhanced through additional training of the young professionals. But a different paradigm must be enacted to include these valuable resources in the solution.
Alter historical approaches to water expansion with a new strategy comprised of an integration of conservation and reuse.
Plumbing systems aim to collect, transport, and distribute water and to remove liquid and human waste. However, the benefits of a safe water supply and proper sanitation come with risks that include water contamination, cross-connections, scalding, and thermal shock. Moreover, the Plumbers in Tilehurst ensure the plumbing system is safely installed while mitigating the risks.
