ASSE, Plumbers Without Borders Launch ‘Plumbing Term of the Day’ Campaign

MOKENA, Ill. – ASSE International and Plumbers Without Borders have launched their “Plumbing Term of the Day” campaign. Every workday morning, a plumbing term and its definition will be published on the new ASSE International “Plumbing Term of the Day” blog and shared on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Each term and definition will be pulled from the ASSE International Plumbing Dictionary (Sixth Edition), which contains more than 4,000 plumbing words, terms and abbreviations.

“Every craft or trade has unique and peculiar terms; knowing their meaning is essential in the plumbing industry,” said Richard J. Prospal, ASSE International past president and Plumbers Without Borders advisory board member. “For those who don’t have time to read through the plumbing dictionary every day, the ‘Plumbing Term of the Day’ is a great way to have a bit of knowledge and entertainment delivered directly your phone, tablet or computer every day, for free.”

By keeping up with the “Plumbing Term of the Day” blog, experienced plumbing professionals and new students of the profession can expand their knowledge, fine tune their vocational vocabulary and become encyclopedias of plumbing trivia. The terms of this campaign and the plumbing dictionary are intended to be descriptive, not prescriptive — to describe, define and explain, not to prescribe limitations or establish fixed and restrictive meanings. Wherever possible, nontechnical language has been used for ease of readability, but specialized and technical terminology have been retained wherever necessary to help give the truest pertinent meanings.

As part of this campaign, ASSE International is offering free digital copies of the ASSE International Plumbing Dictionary (Sixth Edition) on the “Plumbing Term of the Day” blog. For more info, visit
