Roger The Plumber, a residential plumbing and HVAC services company, is drawing attention to the vital role of plumbers in modern society by celebrating “Thank A Plumber Day” on April 25th. 

Celebrating “Thank A Plumber Day”.

The global plumbing industry was worth $144.3 billion USD in 2021 and is projected to reach $139 billion USD by 2027. The demand for skilled plumbers is expected to grow by 7% between 2018 and 2028, with the top-paying states for plumbers in the US including Illinois, Alaska, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Plumbers today are in high demand and the position pays well for those willing to learn the trade.

Plumbing and sanitation are a crucial yet overlooked aspect of modern society. The profession is actually much older than most people realize. The first known examples of sanitation date back to the Orkney Islands of Scotland, about 5,000 years ago. Ancient Rome also had aqueducts that distributed water through lead pipes, while the Cloaca Maxima was a sewage system that ran throughout the entire city. Unfortunately, the fall of Rome led to the neglect of personal hygiene and the rise of waterborne diseases.

Today, the plumbing system and profession play a key role in protecting society from the effects of contaminated water, poor sanitation, and poor hygiene. Thanks to nearly 420,000 plumbers, Americans today are better protected from diseases like cholera, dysentery, diarrhea, and various tropical diseases than previous generations who lacked safe and efficient plumbing systems.

Roger The Plumber Manager Hunter Hamilton commented, “On ‘Thank A Plumber Day’, we encourage local residents to share their gratitude on social media and to stay committed to protecting their home’s plumbing system by keeping up with routine maintenance. Of course, we’re here to support the health and well-being of our local community by doing our part.”
