For the Love of Faucets…………..
After visiting the Toilet Museum, I realized I have my own little showroom of interesting plumbing. Let me show you what I mean.
First of all, every room in our house that has water has its own water heater. In the U.S., typically there is one water heater for the entire house. These water heaters in each room work fine – the one in the kitchen could be a little larger but it works well enough.
Each bathroom has one of these drains by the toilet.
And also under the sinks.
And you need a degree in engineering or a teenager to figure out the showers. 😉
And finally, the kitchen sink. An advanced degree could be helpful here.
The white box to the left of the faucet(s) is the water filtration system.
Maybe some one could explain this more precisely – but each house also has a water tank – often they are on the roof. You can actually run out of water here – so far we have not – but you can. I think our house also has a tank underground.
Yesterday we were without water for 4 hours while the tank was cleaned. Nope, I did not mind that one bit – if you are trying to keep my water cleaner, I will (gladly) do without water for 4 hours. Thank you!
