The Bathroom Manufacturers Association is marking World Plumbing Day – 11th March – by asking plumbers across the UK to help stamp out water waste. The BMA is running a campaign #GetLavvySavvy to help the public spot a leak in a loos, a trickle of water at the back of the pan which often goes unnoticed.
Chief executive, Tom Reynolds, explains: “As well as helping everyone keep clean during the pandemic, plumbers play an important role in help the environment. Water scarcity is a crucial issue for the UK, as climate change and population growth are predicted to create a structural deficit in water resources by 2050.
“A leak in your toilet may only seem like a small trickle but it can account for many litres of water wasted, and it is often very easily fixed. That’s why our #GetLavvySavvy campaign is showing people what to look out for, and if they have any doubts we are encouraging them to contact a plumber and get it checked. We all have a role to play in reducing water waste and consumption and plumbers can help educate householders about what to look out for.”
Plumbing is a major part of our everyday routine, whether that’s having a shower, washing our hands and flushing the toilet. All of these tasks require a clean fresh water supply, but without behaviour changes, that supply may be threatened in the future.
