It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…your plumber?

May 12, 2014

A new breed of service professionals is coming to the forefront of the plumbing industry. Behold, the current generation of Superhero Plumbers, armed with the education, energy, and drive guaranteed to change the way you look at the person you called to come fix that leaky faucet.

These special plumbers are called Green Plumbers, and they truly stand apart from their competitors. What exactly is a Green Plumber, though, and what makes them “green?” A Green Plumber is a plumber who offers water-saving options as a first choice to his or her customers. With the thousands of so-called “eco-friendly” choices out there today, this may seem pretty simple, but being a Green Plumber involves so much more than handing the consumer a Water Sense labeled product.

Green Plumbers go through specialized training and ongoing education to stay informed and up-to-date on the latest, research-based and tested products and practices. It makes sense that the very person who is knowledgeable about the best ways to keep water flowing properly in your home should be the person who can show you the most effective ways to conserve water. A Green Plumber might simply demonstrate to home or business owners how to change water-wasteful habits, or could even recommend the latest technology in water savings, such as a toilet that flushes with less than one gallon of water. Since water conservation saves money as well as the resource, everybody wins with a Green Plumber on their team!

Green Plumbers truly are heroes in their community. By helping individuals and businesses conserve water, they help to build a more sustainable planet. Water conservation is a global concern, and Green Plumbers play a key role in educating consumers about products and practices that work well while saving water. Not for generations have plumbers had such a clear opportunity to be leaders in their community. If Aquaman carried a plunger, it certainly would be green!
