Plumbing trivia...

Did you know that:

• Einstein was named an honorary member of the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union after saying publicly that he would become a plumber if he had to do it all over again.

• A survey of 11,000 doctors by the British Medical Journal in 2007 voted that the world’s greatest medical milestone since 1840 was sanitation.


• The word "plumber" dates back to the Roman Empire where pipes were originally made from lead, which is "plumbum" in Latin. Those who worked with lead were called Plumbarius, which was eventually shortened to plumber.


• Famous plumbers include Ozzy Osborn, Michael Cain, John Farnham and Gabriel Byrne.


Reece community water initiative

Meantime, to mark World Plumbing Day, Reece has launched a community water initiative to help create healthier communities around the world.

The Reece Grant is open to its customers who are looking to undertake clean water and sanitation projects here or overseas.

The grant, which awards up to $15,000 in funds or products, is now open, with submissions closing 30 April 2015.
