The History of Plumbing
Plumbing got its start in ancient civilizations whose frequent use of public baths required them to develop some sort of waste removal and management system. Advancement in plumbing was relatively slow for around 1,000 years but by the 1800s, public health experts saw the need for better plumbing systems to prevent the spread of diseases. By the mid 20th century, most houses in the United States had indoor plumbing.
What Do Plumbers Do?
Plumbers are equipped to deal with any sort of system that deals with fluids, including HVAC units and pipe systems. One of their primary jobs involves keeping clean water running and waste water flushed away from our homes and buildings. They also install, maintain, and repair pipes. In the event of a leak or busted pipe, plumbers must be able to quickly identify the source of the problem in order to fix the issue and prevent any additional damage.
When it comes to unclogging drains, taking care of leaks, or repairing busted pipes, we all have one person to thank – a plumber. National Hug a Plumber Day is celebrated every year on April 25th, as a reminder to celebrate these often overlooked heroes who help keep our homes running smoothly. Take some time out of your day to show some appreciation to your local plumber, whether it’s a hug, a card, or a simple thank you.
