Baethke Plumbing is a family-owned and operated business that’s served the Greater Chicago area for more than 30 years. We have a lot to celebrate, and we owe it all to our many loyal customers and our amazing team.

We are excited to ring in this year’s National Plumber’s Day celebration by commemorating this holiday and inviting homeowners in our area to participate in our cost-effective plumbing maintenance program.

What is National Plumber’s Day?

National Plumber’s Day is celebrated every year on April, 25. The focus is to show appreciation for all who work within the plumbing profession. This holiday also spreads awareness about plumbing safety, how to get access to clean water, and the benefits of quality plumbing services. You can also learn a little bit about the plumbing industry. Here are some fun facts about the history of plumbing that you might be interested in:

  • The first city-wide water system in the U.S. was created in the mid-1600s.
  • The first flushing toilet was patented by Alexander Cumming in 1775.
  • Boston’s first city water system was established in 1652.
  • Herbert Hoover established the first plumbing codes in the 1930s.

At Baethke, we want to take this opportunity to thank our customers, and to also show appreciation for plumbers everywhere who make it easier for us to get access to clean water each and every day.

Benefits of Routine Plumbing Maintenance

We use water every day for cleaning, bathing, cooking, and more. Even so, your plumbing is usually one of the furthest things from your mind—at least until something goes wrong. This is why routine plumbing maintenance is so important.

Plumbing maintenance ensures that your drains are clog-free, your pipes are up-to-date and free from leaks, and that your plumbing systems are working as efficiently as possible. Not only does this ensure that you have fresh water when you need it, but it also helps to reduce your water bill and can potentially save you a lot of money on unnecessary plumbing work in the future.
