Does Plumbing Seem Like a Thing of the Past?
When then ancient civilizations invented indoor
plumbing, it was only intended to and to bring in clean water through the
piping system; However, now our society is incredibly dependent on this system
of complex pipes that makes our lives more sanitary and easy.
Unique networks of subterranean tunnels have
been discovered all over the world and some date back to a period before
Christ, which is truly incredible and might change some of the things that we
first believed about our ancestors. It
is truly amazing to see how advanced they were back then and how they knew the
importance of plumbing systems in their communities.
Civilizations like the Mayans and the Romans,
all knew about the importance of plumbing and how it could affect their
population’s health. They developed
incredible plumbing systems, which served to take clean water into their cities
and dirty water away from them. These
systems are still standing today and could even work if water ran through them
Monarchs, during The Tudors period, also knew
the importance of plumbing systems and many of their creations have helped
modern plumbers to develop systems for our homes. There are still documents, about the plumbers
who worked in the city during those days and some of them were John Date and
Nicholas Walrond, who was one of the most successful plumbers of his time. Some of the records, not only show what parts
of the city’s plumbing system each of these plumbers worked on, but also the
foods that they were given by the city officials at the time. This proves how
important plumbing systems were to our ancestors back then and how important
they are to us today.
It is always nice to remember the great minds
who gave us the future of plumbing. If it weren’t for them, who knows what our communities
would be like and what our world would of have evolved to.
