The History of the ShowerNov 07, 2022
When you take a warm and relaxing shower, do you ever wonder how this simple yet incredible product came to be? From humble beginnings to the modern fixtures we can’t live without, the shower has come a long way. Jacuzzi Bath Remodel is here to help break it all down and showcase why our shower products are so special.
As society began to advance, jugs were invented, and they officially became some of the first showers! The ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians are believed to be the first societies to utilize these makeshift showers. While a cold jug shower may not seem luxurious, the ancient Egyptians made them a sign of status. Wealthy members of society would make their servants bring jugs of water to special bathing rooms.
The Greeks took this simple idea and brought it up a notch, developing the first drainage systems. This was great, as dirty water was transported out of rooms via lead pipes, ensuring a cleaner society—literally. The Romans built large bathhouses on both their native lands, as well as all the lands they conquered. While the Romans were able to develop and build advanced sewage systems for disposing of wastewater, this technology would soon be put on hold once their empire collapsed.
The Modern Shower
The first modern shower wasn’t invented until 1767 when it was patented by a London stove maker named William Feetham. His invention pumped water into a basin above the user’s head, and then they’d pull a chain to release it. By 1810, the English Regency Shower was invented, allowing people to finally enjoy the soothing effects of a hot shower. Fast forward to the 1980s, and showers were finally more popular than ever. Now, there are many types of shower designs to choose from.
