Let’s Celebrate Decatur, Alabama! It’s World Plumbing Day!

Do you know what March 11th is? Lamco Plumbing does! It is World Plumbing Day. March 11th was designated as World Plumbing Day by the World Plumbing Council in order to raise awareness about the importance of the plumbing profession around the world. Many take plumbing for granted, but clean water and sanitation are important to the nation’s health and safety. In a world where 1.1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water, we should be thankful for the modern plumbing we use and enjoy.

Besides preventing disease and death, modern day plumbing is also helping to save the planet. Only 7% of the earth’s water is fresh water and at least 70% of that water is trapped in the polar ice caps. It is important everyday that we work to conserve water at the local and global level. Plumbers are on the front line of that effort. With new industry technologies like water and energy efficient water heaters and grey water systems that collect sink and shower drain water and then use that water for toilet flushing, the plumbing industry is becoming more creative and more effective at saving our natural resources.

And here at Lamco plumbing we encourage you to celebrate World Plumbing Day with us by committing to using water more efficiently.  You can:

1. Install low flow faucets and showerheads

2. Turn the water off while brushing your teeth

3. Wash your fruits and vegetables together and all at once in a basin instead of individually under a running faucet

4. Use a broom to clean your sidewalks and driveway instead of a hose

5. Upgrade toilets and water heaters to newer and more efficient models

These are just some of the things you can do to help save our most precious natural resource…fresh water! Lamco plumbing is proud to be part of such an important industry that helps saves the planet and helps saves lives. We appreciate our hard working and highly trained technicians and all they do for the community!
