IPA to train plumbers on sustainability practices

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

To reduce wastage of water through pipes in buildings and municipalities, the Indian Plumbing Association (IPA) is training plumbers to ensure sustainability practices are kept in mind during construction.

"We are working with the government's skill council to train new plumbers. By taking a clue from the American Plumbing Association, we are designing courses according to our own needs. We are including sustainability practices in this," Ramaprasun Mitra of IPA said.



At an annual conference of IPA today, a Bengali version of the Guide to Good Plumbing Practices, was launched.

It is estimated that across major cities and towns in India, 25-30 per cent of water is wasted by municipalities due to water leakage during storage and distribution.

"Even in buildings, we waste around 5-10 per cent of water due to leakage. All these are major challenges before the plumbing industry," he said.

The industry is taking several initiatives like conservation of water and reuse of water using modern technology.

"New equipment are coming up, which reduces the amount of water you put in the flush," Mitra said.
