One of the planet’s most precious resources is water. Sure, it might not seem that hard for you to get water, just turn on the tap, but have you ever stopped to think about how that clean water finds its way to your kitchen sink? From the time it is collected and brought into your home, to when you dump it down the drain, water is on a long journey. This amazing traveling water doesn’t happen automatically. There’s a whole team of people whose job it is to take care of water.
An important member of this H20 team is the plumber. They work hard every day to keep our water usage as environmentally friendly as possible. Plumbers use such new technologies as low flow showerheads and toilets to help us use less. Plumbers also install and maintain new systems that reuse water in ways that help make sure we don’t waste a single drop!
High-five a plumber
