World Plumbing Day
One of the most important days of the year, World Plumbing Day is officially on 11 March every year, every where. Initiated by the World Plumbing Council in 2010, World Plumbing Day is a day to celebrate the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.
The international plumbing community, as represented by the Council, has a vital role in promoting the link between good quality plumbing, health, environmental sustainability and, increasingly, economic prosperity.
In QLD we celebrate World Plumbing Day with our annual World Plumbing Day breakfast and encourage our members to show their support for World Plumbing Day and the importance of plumbing on social media and directly to their customers.
