World Plumbing Day

by | Mar 11, 2024

March 11th is set aside each year to spread awareness of the importance of plumbing and plumbers. At Sonnhalter, we have a great appreciation for plumbers and the work that they do. Today, we will be sharing some plumbing facts to promote the practice and why it’s important.

Did you Know That Plumbing Improves the World

  • Standardized plumbing can be traced back to around 3,000 B.C
  • Over 1 billion of people gained access to piped water supplies between 2000 and 2015
  • About 0.3% of homes across the country have a minor plumbing leak
  • The global population of people who used safely managed sanitation services increased from 28% in 2000 to 39% in 2015
  • A 4-minute shower can now use as little as 24 liters of water
  • The dual system toilet flush, created in a small town in Australia in 1980, now uses as little as 4.5 liters of water

Today we salute the ones who keep everything flowing, and not overflowing. Thank you to the dedicated plumbers who answer the call and don’t recount the tales of what they’ve pulled out of pipes.
