The Toilet Through The Ages
Now humans had relearned the basics, the first patent came about for toilets by adding a constant pool of water in the toilet. For the next 300 years, the toilet evolved by little improvements. The 1700’s gave us improvements on the flushing mechanism and flow of water. The 1800’s produced better drainage and valves which leaked less. The 1900’s moved the water tank onto the toilet itself and the modern toilet was complete.
The Modern Toilet
Now we have a wonderful device which saves us from carrying waste outside. Yet, these beautiful creations are so much a part of our lives we can’t live without them. What can we do when our porcelain pal breaks? The basics such as plunging clogs are within our abilities, but major issues are best left to experts. Why? One issue is the toilet is not an easy fix and trying to repair it often leads to more money to fix the mistakes. Also, when you are fixing toilets you have to deal with your water pipes and potential exposure to nasty biological materials.
This requires training to keep from creating a messy and unhealthy disaster. So, while we are happy to have our bathroom buddy after years of discovery and improvment, to keep it up and running it’s best to send for the pros.
