Today is March 11th, and here in Amarillo, TX, and around the world, people are celebrating World Plumbing Day. March 11th was designated World Plumbing Day by the World Plumbing Council to help raise awareness about the importance of plumbing, and Pratt Plumbing is excited to do our part to raise awareness in Amarillo, TX.
While many in the United States take their clean running water, hot water heaters, and flushing toilets for granted, it is true that in developing nations, a plumber can be just as important to the life of a child as the doctor who treats them. The World Health Organization estimates that there are 1.1. billion people in the world who do not have access to clean drinking water. There are also 2.6 billion people who do not have access to basic sanitation like toilets. Because of this, 3.1 million people, mostly children, die from water borne illnesses.
Plumbing problems aren’t limited to developing nations. The SARS epidemic in Hong Kong is believed to be partially related to a failed P-Trap and mounting bolts in the Amoy Gardens plumbing system. The failure of these components allowed the infectious agents to spread through the building. From design and production, to installation, inspection, and maintenance, this case study proves that plumbing is important to the health and safety of everyone around the world.
