From Tubs to Showers – The Change in Bathroom Plumbing in Hickory, NC

From Tubs to Showers - The Change in Bathroom PlumbingHow times have changed in bathroom plumbing! It is not that long ago that bath time meant dragging a large washtub into the kitchen to fill with hot water from the stove and the whole family bathed in that same tub one after the other. Eventually an actual room was set aside for bathroom purposes, and a bathtub that could be hooked up to indoor water lines and drain lines was developed. How wonderful this must have seemed after the old method!

Although the first idea of using a shower for bathing probably originated from the fun of standing under a waterfall, it wasn’t until the late 1800’s that bathroom plumbing advanced to the point of actually standing to shower. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all that popular at that time, and it really wasn’t until about 1975 or so before showers came back into favor in American homes.
