When Your Plumber Sandy was writing the history of the toilet, we came across several different names for the toilet, only some of which had to do with people who helped develop the toilet. This got us to thinking...what do the other names for the toilet come from? Where does the word ‘toilet’ come from? This article has several different synonyms for toilet, from different places around the world. We hope you enjoy this article as much as we enjoyed writing it!
Sometimes it is only when we don’t have something that we really appreciate it. For example: Toilets. Most of us in Sandy visit the bathroom at least two to three times a day to sit upon the “throne.” It is currently the most efficient and least smelly way to get rid of our bodily waste. Sometimes, though, people want to use that same system to get rid of things besides body waste. More often than not this can lead to blockages in the plumbing and plumbers who just have to shake their heads at the strange things people flush down the toilets of both homes and businesses. Today we’ve brought you some examples of strange things that have been flushed. So if you’ve got a blocked, plugged, or clogged toilet - don’t feel down! You are hardly the first, and you won’t be the last. Not only that, but no matter what you’ve gotten stuck down your toilet, at least one of the things on this list is probably stranger, sadder, or more funny.
Though most people tend to use the toilet at least twice a day, it’s something most people don’t know the history of. To be fair, though, even the experts aren’t sure exactly which civilization came up with the original toilet. For now, it is believed that many different peoples came up with similar systems for getting rid of bodily waste. Who are these people? What sort of ‘facilities’ did they come up with? Your Plumber Sandy has done the digging to bring you the dirt on toilets.
