Celebrating World Plumbing Day in Reading & the North Shore—Where Would We Be Without Plumbers?
Celebrated each year on March 11th, World Plumbing Day is a time to recognize the importance of all things plumbing related. The achievements of plumbers throughout the centuries allow for us to live the safe, healthy lives that we do today. Modern plumbing systems are essential for a country to be considered developed, and our Reading and North Shore plumbers are proud to have the opportunity to further the progress of our plumbing predecessors. Without the plumbers of our past, our present would be quite different. Where might you be if pioneering plumbers never existed?
In a world without plumbers you might be…
Shivering on a Cold Seat in an Outhouse – Without indoor plumbing pipes and flushing toilets, you’re forced to do your business in the outhouse. Unfortunately for you, it’s been pretty cold lately, and while you have nothing against the great outdoors, your frozen nostril hairs and visible breath make you want to run back to the warmth of your home.
Scrubbing Spaghetti Sauce Out of Your T-Shirt with a Washboard – Oops, you did it again—dropped a meatball on your shirt. You grab a bar of soap, your washboard, and a bucket of water and get to scrubbing before the stain sets in.
Bathing in Your Kitchen in a Tub of Dirty Water – If you weren’t outside scrubbing your t-shirt, you might have been inside when the hot water was fresh off the stove. But, alas, you’re last in line this week, and the water is looking a bit unsavory. If only someone could make filling a bathtub easier!
Fetching Water from the Well – Like Jack and Jill, you’ve got to go outside for your water. With or without a hill, it’s still a bigger pain than flipping on the faucet.
Six Feet Underground – Yes, this one is a bit morbid, but let’s face it, without modern sewers, sanitary systems, and water treatment systems, it would be difficult to avoid serious illnesses.
So, what part do North Shore and Reading plumbing companies like Waldman play in all of this? Well, we maintain plumbing systems, upgrade fixtures, improve existent plumbing technology, and look for ways to conserve water. For plumbing service, give Waldman Plumbing a call anytime! Happy World Plumbing Day!
