"Protecting The Health Of The Nation" is the plumbers' theme. Certainly plumbers install and repair pipes, but a plumber's basic job is making sure that pure water flows in a controlled manner throughout the homes and buildings of our area. Amateur plumbing and do-it-yourself maintenance can easily upset the balance of a safe water system.
Plumbers team with water treatment plants to bring you safe water. Every time a Local 16 plumber installs a system, makes a service call or simply repairs plumbing, he takes special steps to clean and protect the water from chemicals and sewage contaminants.
The public safety concern of Local 16 saves customers and contractors thousands of dollars each year in service calls and legal actions.
At Local 16, public safety is our concern in every task we perform.
