It’s Time to be Thankful for Modern Plumbing

The alarm goes off so you can be up bright and early to begin preparation for your family’s Thanksgiving dinner. You put on your jacket and shoes and start your walk toward the outhouse.

What? That’s doesn’t right, does it? But in the 1930s and earlier that is exactly how your morning could have started. That doesn’t sound like a fun way to start the holiday at all.

And just in case you ever do have to take that long walk to an outhouse, did you know that a crescent moon, symbol for Luna a Roman goddess indicated a women’s outhouse, while a circle or star portrayed Apollo, a male sun god?

And what if you had to go to the well to get water instead of turning on a faucet? You are not going to have the luxury of choosing either a hot and cold well, so heating your water is going to be yet another chore you would get to enjoy.

Our toilets, our running water, our hot water heater, are just a few things in today’s world that we are now able to take for granted. All these were considered luxuries not that long ago, and still are in many countries across the world.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the people and things that enrich our lives and to be thankful. Modern plumbing has made all our lives not only easier, but healthier as well!

Roto Rooter has much to be thankful for. We are the #1 name in plumbing, and that is because our customers have come to rely on us. That is a responsibility that we take seriously.

We would like to wish everyone a happy & healthy Thanksgiving!
