Happy World Water Day!

Happy World Water Day! This annual event, held on March 22nd, raises awareness about the importance of freshwater and the need for sustainable management of our planet’s water resources. As plumbing professionals, we are keenly aware of the vital role that water plays in our daily lives and the critical need to protect this precious resource.

Water is essential for life, but unfortunately, millions of people around the world still lack access to safe and clean drinking water. Plumbing plays a crucial role in ensuring that water is delivered to homes, businesses, and public facilities safely and efficiently. On World Water Day, we can reflect on the importance of proper plumbing and how it helps to conserve this vital resource.

Water conservation – leaks

One of the main plumbing-related issues related to water conservation is leaks. Leaks in plumbing systems can waste a significant amount of water, resulting in increased water bills, water shortages, and higher carbon emissions. Did you know a tap that drips once every second, wastes 30 litres of water per day. That’s a whopping 10,950 litres per year! This is a significant amount of wasted water that can be easily prevented by fixing leaks as soon as they are detected.

Leaks can also cause major damage to buildings, homes and infrastructure. Water damage can be costly to repair, and it can also lead to the growth of mould and mildew, which can cause health problems. If you notice an increase in your water bill or loss of water from your water tank, it is best that you contact your local plumber to investigate and ensure that any leaks are fixed, before they cause major damage to your building, home or wallet.

Water efficient fixtures

Another plumbing issue that affects water conservation is the installation of water-efficient fixtures. Many older homes and buildings still have outdated toilets, showerheads, and faucets that use significantly more water than modern, water-efficient models. Upgrading to water-efficient fixtures can reduce water consumption and save homeowners and businesses significant amounts of money on their water bills.

Plumbing professionals can also play a vital role in educating the public about water conservation. By promoting the importance of water-saving habits such as turning off the tap while brushing teeth, taking shorter showers, and fixing leaks, plumbers can help raise awareness about the importance of water conservation and the role that plumbing plays in ensuring sustainable water management.

On this World Water Day, let us reflect on the critical role that water plays in our daily lives and the importance of sustainable water management. As plumbing professionals, we can do our part by fixing leaks, promoting water-efficient fixtures, and educating the public about the importance of water conservation. By working together, we can help ensure that everyone has access to safe, clean drinking water for generations to come.

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.
