The Evolution of Plumbing

Without advances in science, engineering, and technology, modern plumbing would be far from what it is today. Could you imagine having to go outside to an outhouse to use the bathroom? What about having to take cold showers because all you had was cold water? Or having to boil water on a cooker to use it to take a bath?

To get water out of the ground, you had to dig a deep hole, install piping, and then use a hand pump to pump water from the well. It wasn’t until cities started installing freshwater lines that people could get fresh water without having to do so much work!

The evolution of plumbing has been occurring since around 4,000 B.C. when the first clay sewer pipes were invented in Babylonia. Since that time, other civilizations and countries have made strides on improving plumbing, piping, and developing marvelous new inventions like the flush toilet!
