World Plumbing Day is celebrated on 11 March each year as a means of promoting the important role played by the plumbing industry throughout the world.

Today is World Plumbing Day, celebrated each year as a means of promoting the important role played by the plumbing industry throughout the world.

The safe supply of drinking water is, of course, a concern for many people across the world, but what is not often emphasized is the work the plumbing industry plays in keeping people safe and healthy each and every day.

Many businesses and organisations around the world support World Plumbing Day. John Rae, water operations general manager at Scottish Water, said: "The supply of safe and wholesome drinking water is of paramount importance to Scottish Water and we support the aims and ambitions of World Plumbing Day. It is only right to record and support the important role that the plumbing industry plays in keeping us safe and healthy.”

SNIPEF's chief executive, Robert Burgon, added: "On World Plumbing Day, please take a moment to think about the critical role played by SNIPEF, its members and others aiming to promote excellence in the plumbing industry and consider what life might be like if we did not enjoy access to the professional plumbing facilities that are widely available to us."
