The first toilet ever


WORLD'S FIRST TOILET
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first toilet?

The history of the toilet is long and vast and has about as many stories as it does uses.

Undoubtedly the first toilets were trees, large rocks, bushes, etc.

As far back as 6,000 B.C. in ancient Babylonia underground sewer systems were springing up and chamber pots saw their birth.

The Romans, with their aqueducts, brought the public toilet into light, and during the excavation of Pompeii water closets were were unearthed.

The invention of the modern flushing toilet is credited to Thomas Crapper in the late 1800's but that claim is just a myth.

Alexander Cumming patented the flushing device  in 1755, the forerunner of the toilet in use today.

Two hundred years prior to Alexander Cumming, Sir John Harington invented a washout closet that worked similarly to Cumming's toilet.

There is a lot of history left to cover and we'll leave that up to you, but we would like to add that the person who brought the toilet into a whole new light has to be Al Bundy.
