National Plumber's Day is observed next on Tuesday, April 25th, 2023 (145 days from today).
National Plumber's Day is celebrated on April 25 every year. A plumber is someone who installs and helps maintain plumbing systems used for drinking water, wastewater, and sewer systems. A fault in the system will upset any place; only a plumber can rescue. Plumbing ensures a consistent flow of water through pipes throughout the house. Plumbers also do dirty jobs like cleaning clogged toilets, fixing broken water pipes, etc. They must be appreciated for the work they are doing every day to keep others' lives easy. These jobs did not receive any high appreciation until there were something wrong in the system. Plumbing keeps the system running smoothly. Therefore, hug a plumber is a way to express gratitude for their work to keep our lives healthy and clean.
History of National Plumber's Day
We used to have no indoor plumbing, meaning no bathtub, toilet, or hot water and had to use outbuildings and carry water long distances. Thanks to the jobs that plumbers do, we now take the plumbing in our homes for granted and don't think much of it. But on National Plumber's Day also commonly known as National Plumbers Day, Plumber Hug Day, and Plumber Hug Day we pause to honor and thank those keep clean water flowing to us and sewage out of us. Today, we show our appreciation to them, best suited in the form of a hug.
The word "plumber" is of Roman Empire origin, from the Latin word platinum, the word for lead. In ancient Rome, lead was used to make pipes, drains, and baths. Because of working with lead, people were called as plumbarius, however, they was eventually shortened to "plumbers".
Plumbers install, repair and maintain residential, commercial and industrial water supply and drainage systems. Many skills are required to become a plumber, including the ability to determine the layout of the system; be able to read blueprints; capable of detecting, diagnosing and repairing errors in the system; work with pipes and power tools; and more. Plumbers can specialize in different areas. Some work on the installation and repair of piping systems in commercial and industrial buildings. Some may work mainly in residential homes. People who work mainly with piping systems in industrial areas are called pipe fitters that specialize in steam heating systems, called steamfitters, while those who specialize in sprinkler system installation and repair are called sprinkler fitters.
Plumbers have to be licensed in most states and localities, in spite of no federal law requiring licensed plumbers. Both training and experience are required to gain licensure and 000 also be passed in most states before licensure is granted. Then the plumbers were called cruise workers and were able to work on their own. After a few years of experience, they can pass an exam to get a master's position.
