World Plumbing Day was created by the World Plumbing Council in 2010 to highlight the importance of plumbing. Modern plumbing and plumbers play a huge role in maintaining the overall health of humans and the environment. Sometimes, it’s easy to take the convenience of modern plumbing for granted. Major parts of everyday routines, such as getting a glass of water from the tap, flushing the toilet, and taking a hot shower would not be possible without trained plumbers and modern plumbing! Here are some reasons why you should take time today to appreciate it.

Plumbing Fact: Only 4 out of every 10 people worldwide have a toilet in their home.

Clean Drinking Water

Turning on the faucet and using what comes out is a luxury that over two billion people don’t have. Plumbing allows for treatment of water to remove harmful bacteria. Thanks to modern advancements, by the time the water reaches your home it’s safe for drinking, washing hands, and bathing.

Waste Removal

Safe removal of sewage and other wastewater is just as critical for health as a clean water supply. Did you know that only 4 out of every 10 people in the world have a toilet in their home? Expanding access to and properly maintaining sanitary piping ensures that waste can leave your home with minimal impact to your health.

Waste Treatment

Waste water must be treated before it can be discharged into the environment. Modern treatment plants help support environmental health and sustainability.

Plumbing Fact: 3 out of every 10 people worldwide lack access to safe water at home.

Hot Showers

Imagine having to take ice cold showers or baths every day. Modern water heaters installed by trained plumbers allow you to avoid this scenario and start or end your day with a hot shower or bath.

Safe Piping

For many years, piping was made of lead and other mixtures of metals containing toxic materials. Today, safer piping materials are being used that will protect you and your family from exposure to dangerous substances.


Overall, advancements in modern plumbing have made water supply and waste removal systems reliable and consistent. However, millions of people around the world still lack access to basic plumbing.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
