Interesting Plumbing Facts

Interesting Plumbing Facts


Here at NJR Headquarters, we thought a great way to interact with our clients and provide market updates would be to start a blog – so welcome to the NJR Blog! Being our very first Blog post we thought we would start with something fun, by going into a few interesting plumbing facts…

  1. Plumbing can be traced back to around 3,000 B.C. when the Indus River Valley civilization used earthen plumbing pipes to provide transportable water and drain wastes.
  2. Mario and Luigi (of the video game Super Mario Brothers) are plumbers.
  3. Albert Einstein said if he could do it all again, he would be a plumber.
  4. Think a leaky faucet is no big deal? Think again. A faucet that drips just once per second can waste more than 11,300 liters of water per year.
  5. Over a 10 year period, a dual flush toilet will cost you around $250, whilst a single flush comes in at $760, which would you prefer?
