The Bathroom Manufacturers Association is marking World Plumbing Day – March 11 by asking plumbers across the UK to help stamp out water waste.
World Plumbing Day, an initiative by the World Plumbing Council, highlights the important role plumbers play in protecting public health and improving access to clean water.
The Bathroom Manufacturers Association is running a campaign #GetLavvySavvy help the public spot a leaks in a loos, a trickle of water at the back of the pan which often goes unnoticed.
BMA Chief Executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “As well as helping everyone keep clean during the pandemic, plumbers play an important role in help the environment.
“Water scarcity is a crucial issue for the UK, as climate change and population growth are predicted to create a structural deficit in water resources by 2050.
“A leak in your toilet may only seem like a small trickle but it can account for many litres of water wasted, and it is often very easily fixed.
“That’s why our #GetLavvySavvy campaign is showing people what to look out for, and if they have any doubts we are encouraging them to contact a plumber and get it checked.
“We all have a role to play in reducing water waste and consumption and plumbers can help educate householders about what to look out for.”
Plumbing is a major part of our everyday routine, whether that’s having a shower, washing our hands and flushing the toilet. All of these tasks require a clean fresh water supply, but without behaviour changes, that supply may be threatened in the future.
