Along the same theme as our last post, in February let’s spend some time being grateful for and showing love to other things in our life. At Marines Plumbing, of course we are incredibly grateful for all of our clients. A close second though would be plumbing, both indoor and outdoor. Without plumbing, we wouldn’t be where we are and we wouldn’t get the chance to help people in Northern VA with their plumbing issues!
That’s why we love plumbing, but here are three reasons you should love your plumbing.
1 - Plumbing Keeps You Clean
We forget how lucky we are to have the ability to have multiple showers in our home. There are countries that don’t have this luxury. Yes, to them a running shower is luxury. Or how about hot water and good water pressure? These are also things that are not guaranteed anywhere else. A client of ours recently returned from an overseas trip and was remarking on how inconsistent the water pressure was in their showers. It made them realize how lucky they were to have two showers with really great water pressure.
2 - Indoor Plumbing is Sanitary
Another thing we forget living in the United States is how wonderful indoor plumbing is from a sanitation perspective. Sure, there are communities that don’t take advantage of indoor plumbing, but for the most part, especially in Northern VA, we all have functioning indoor toilets. One of the best parts of indoor plumbing is how sanitary it is. We won’t get into gruesome details here, but just know that having indoor plumbing is really sanitary.
3 - Plumbing Provides Safe Drinking Water
Yes, there are a few places in the United States that have drinking water issues, but overall, the water quality in the United States is really good. There are lots of countries in the world where you cannot drink the water because of chemicals and bacteria in the water. In extreme cases, you aren’t even supposed to use the water to brush your teeth. We are lucky that in Northern VA, we can drink the tap water at a restaurant and have ice in our drinks and brush our teeth without worry.
There are many other reasons to be thankful for your plumbing, but these are our top three at Marines Plumbing. If you are having issues with any of the above items, call us today so we can make sure you are staying clean, sanitary, and hydrated!
