The Story of Modern Showers

Modern showers, which were operated with a hand pump, first came about in the early 18th century when William Feetham patented the technology in England. This pump would push water into a “shower head” above the user who would then pull a lever that would release the water above the user’s head. Sounds archaic but back in 1767, it was the most modern way to get clean. The water in these original showers was, as you might expect, room temperature (or even cold) which would result in an uncomfortable showering experience.

Most Popular Shower Options

Fast forward to today, where we have three top options for shower water temperature choice. Manual mixer showers, for example, mix hot and cold water which allow you to move a valve towards the temperature of your choice. These showers are easy to use and low maintenance. Thermostatic mixer showers are a bit more advanced and give you the option to control the temperature of the shower’s water by setting the desired temperature. There are also electric showers which don’t require a hot water supply as the built-in heating unit heats up the cold water. No matter what you choose, C&L Plumbing Supply Co. Inc. can help!
