Today is National Plumber’s Day (and National Hug a Plumber Day!), recognizing plumbing heroes that come to our rescue when pipes leak or drains are clogged. From a minor faucet leak to a major bathtub clog, a plumber will have the right tool for the job.
Did you know that plumbers have kept the water flowing since ancient Rome?
The ancient Roman plumbing system was a notable and legendary achievement in civil engineering. It brought freshwater to city dwellers from hundreds of miles away.
Plumbers need to know more than stopping clogs or leaks. They need to know how to install the right types of pipes and plumbing when building a house or new business.
Our plumbers at Gene Wagner Plumbing are water specialists, designing plumbing systems that work when we need it. Thanks to plumbers all around the world, we have hot water on demand. Plumbers help our showers work and provide the plumbing in our kitchen, an appreciated convenience.
Additional skills that plumbers need are the ability to determine the layout of systems, and the ability to read blueprints, detect, diagnose, and repair breaks in our systems.
Ways to celebrate National Plumbing Day:
1. Hug a Plumber – Nothing says thank you like a friendly hug! Let your plumber know he/she is appreciated.
2. Send a Gift – How about a colorful plunger ornament for that Christmas tree?
3. Take a picture, post, and recommend – Show gratitude by helping your plumber find new customers.
Today, Gene Wagner Plumbing not only says thank you to our staff of plumbers but also plumbers around the world!
