We often take our modern-day plumbing for granted, but it wasn’t that long ago that folks had to make their way to the outhouse to answer nature’s call.
We are so blessed in this country and most of us don’t really even think about it. There are so many things we take for granted today.
Really, we are the luckiest civilization to date, with running hot and cold water, temperature controlled environments, freshest fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, and so much other food at our fingertips.
We really do have it made, but we are so used to these luxuries that we completely have no idea how great it is until something happens to take them away.
It’s funny, but when our drains clog and our plumbing goes out, we can really freak out. If we have no second commode or bathroom in the home, we think the world has come to an end and that we are suddenly poverty stricken.
This is an entirely normal reaction and nobody really blames us all for getting this way about our clogged drains. After all, as a race us humans have been working hard for thousands of years to get where we are. We do deserve all the luxury.
Hopefully, things will continue the uphill climb and we will be able to experience better, faster, and more efficient technologies in the future. Until then, we are where we are.
When our plumbing system does have problems and we find our drains clogged, it can be a huge mess. Most often, we will need to contact a plumber on an emergency call.

Advancements in plumbing have come about over the years. We’ve gone a long way from having to use an outhouse for a restroom. The advancement in plumbing technologies has helped our population become healthier and live longer.
The first major jump in improvement was of course the ability to add a septic system to homes. This helped to bring plumbing available indoors.
New technologies also brought in hot and cold running water systems. However, the lead used in piping at the time caused a lot of unrealized health problems until new developments with PVC and copper helped.
With the expansion of citywide plumbing, gas and electricity service, bathtubs began to become a staple in every home. As people had increased access to clean, warm water for bathing and washing, the demand for tubs grew.
While the health and economic changes in plumbing have grown immensely in the past century, it hasn’t been only about functionality.
Cosmetic changes have greatly improved modern plumbing, making it more convenient for everyone. These little changes include valves that control temperature changes, preventing scalding in the shower, and changes that provide a lessened impact on the environment, such as low-flow shower heads.
Luxuries abound in today’s newly built bathrooms. Master bathrooms are fit for the olden day Kings and Queens.
With tubs and showers for two, Jacuzzi’s, double sinks, vanity areas, towel warmers, entertainment technology installed in mirrors or showers, and so much more, we can now realize the best in luxury for our homes.
