History Of Plumbing

Our modern plumbing systems in the UK, Europe etc are sometimes taken for granted, from a flushing toilet to a running tap of drinkable water. No one has to think about the history of the technology. It has been cited that during the centuries when Greeks and the Romans ruled the land, plumbing systems made their way into towns and cities possibly London. The Greeks and Romans used plumbing to take clean water to the cities and dirty water away from public bathing houses which was successful using a network of aqueducts. Often pipes leading to and from in the system were fashioned from lead. Plumbing in London and the UK in this day and age, uses vastly different materials such as; plastic, steel, brass and copper. The modern toilet, another staple of modern plumbing systems in the western world, is also derived from ancient times. The western toilet is largely based upon the toilets used in as long ago as 2800BC. Within one hundred years, plumbing technology and toilets have gone from the aqueducts of the Roman Empire to the modern efficiencies that most citizens in the United Kingdom take for granted these days. Today plumbing technology places pipes underground and the open sewage drains and cesspools associated with the aqueducts are mostly gone.
