Aqua Plumbing & Air Celebrates World Plumbing Day

Local business promotes the important role plumbing plays in societal health and amenity

Sarasota, Fla. – Aqua Plumbing & Air, a local heating, air conditioning and plumbing company, invites the community to recognize World Plumbing Day, held each year on March 11. Initiated by the World Plumbing Council, World Plumbing Day was created as an opportunity to recognize the important role plumbing plays in societal health and amenity.

“World Plumbing Day is a fun but informational ‘holiday’ to encourage people all over the world to reflect on the vital role plumbing plays in preserving their health and way of life,” said Chuck Jacobson, co-owner of Aqua Plumbing & Air. “Plumbers have a huge responsibility when it comes to health. Plumbing knowledge protects your home hygiene. Without even realizing it, you could damage your pipe or plumbing system, while a plumber can identify the issue and fix it while keeping your system safe.”

According to the World Plumbing Council website (, tasks such as having a shower, getting a glass of water from a tap and flushing the toilet, “are possible thanks to trained plumbers and advances in plumbing.” The World Plumbing Day initiative was created to educate and celebrate, and spread awareness of, “the importance of plumbing and plumbers in protecting public health and improving amenity.”

Facts listed by the WPC include the following statistics: 3 in 10 people currently lack access to safe, readily available water at home, 900 million school children across the world have no handwashing facilities, a critical barrier in the spread of deadly diseases, and 6 in 10 people lack safely managed sanitation.

“World Plumbing Day recognizes the critical link between health and plumbing facilities, and the importance of maintenance, upkeep and service for plumbing systems throughout homes, businesses and schools. We know that good plumbing isn’t just a nice, convenient utility to keep your bathroom looking pretty – it’s the safest and quickest way to maintain and protect your health,” said Jacobson.

As an added measure, the company is offering $99 off the cost of an Everlast Residential Stainless Steel Water Heater installation, including a lifetime factory warranty.
