Roto-Rooter video celebrates 2016 National Hug A Plumber Day

Last Updated on May 2, 2018

Have you hugged your plumber recently? Didn’t think so. Most of us don’t even show enough appreciation to our parents for all they do. That means we definitely don’t thank our plumbers enough. Fear not! You have a chance to make up for it today. April 25 is National Hug A Plumber Day, but I’m sure you already knew that.

Who was there for you when you dropped those earrings down the sink? Unclogged the toilet when you couldn’t? Came to your rescue when you thought that small leak was no big deal? That’s right— your plumber is willing to handle your dirtiest jobs so you don’t have to.

Roto-Rooter has been solving your plumbing and drain problems since 1935, so their plumbers deserve over 80 years worth of hugs! Last year, we filmed two videos showing a day in the life of a plumber on this beloved holiday. The 2015 video was a hit and gained an impressive response on social media with over 700,000 video views and growing. The US Digital Partners team and Roto-Rooter are excited to premiere the 2016 video. Check it out below and join us in celebrating #NationalHugAPlumberDay!
