One of the most overlooked trades is plumbing. Most people think that plumbers only deal with clogged sinks or clogged toilets, but that’s far from the truth. If we didn’t have plumbers around, the lifestyle we live, the privilege we have of having hot and cold water – wouldn’t be possible without plumbers.
WHAT DO PLUMBERS DO?
- Plumbers have numerous jobs they do on a daily basis, and that includes more than unclogging toilets.

- Install appliances such as dishwashers, water heaters, sinks, toilets, bidets, etc.
- Locate water and gas leaks in pipes
- Replace broken pipes

PLUMBING IS IMPORTANT
Did you know that the WHO (World Health Organization) declared plumbers as the most important frontline workers? Plumbers help to ensure the world has clean and sanitary water to drink and bathe in, it’s proven that without sanitary water, sustainable health is not possible. Clean and sanitary conditions allow many people to live healthy and it extends life expectancy.
Plumbers also make sure waste ends up in the correct spot. Plumbers make sure that the waste is disposed in a safe manner by separating your clean water from harmful contaminants. If your plumbing is done bad, or not up to plumbing code, it is possible that those waste contaminants could leak into areas it shouldn’t be, and can create a danger to those nearby.
One of plumbers main priorities is the conservation of water. Water is a finite resource, which means we don’t have an endless supply, which means we need to be cautious with the way we use it, and find ways to get the most out of it. With appliances in today’s technology, they focus on appliances that are water saving. If you’d like to reuse water and conserve your water a step further, a plumber can help you harvest rainwater.
By using appliances that are water saving, it will actually help you save money in the long run. When you waste water, you still need to pay for it. This is why we suggest ideas to help save water, because water isn’t free and it adds up when it’s being wasted.
There are numerous ways you can conserve your water. The most common appliances that are normally changed to water conservation models are:
- Shower heads
- Bathroom faucet
