Much like the shower, the toilet is a part of our daily lives here in Salt Lake City. This often used, but just as often forgotten part of our household has changed our lives for the better. When researching the shower, we here at Your Plumber Salt Lake City got to wondering...where does the toilet come from? It is such an integral part of our lives today, yet most of us don’t know where they come from. So we looked into it and thought we’d share what we found with you. Below is an abbreviated history of the toilet, starting with our modern toilets and tracing our way back.
The versatile shower: here in Salt Lake City we use it to wash everything from pets to people. But how did our shower develop? What first inspired our plumbing marvel? Below is a short history of the shower.
Spring is usually a wonderful time, with the new life and growth exploding out of seemingly everywhere. Here in Salt Lake City, however, we may find that our homes need a bit of maintenance due to the wear of winter. This is equally true for your plumbing, especially if you have uninsulated pipes outside. Pipes underground are mostly naturally insulated by the ground itself, so they are a bit different from exposed outside piping. If you only have a small leak, it may not be immediately obvious you have a leak. Sometimes a small leak may not seem like much, but there can be some big problems from even a small leak in a seemingly harmless place (such as a constantly running toilet or a drip from a faucet). Once detected your plumber can fix the leak for you, but the longer a leak goes unfixed the bigger the damage it causes.
