A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Plumbers Collection - Our modern word "Plumber" derives from the medieval French word Plummier, which literally means lead worker. This relates to the time when the skilled worker, the plumber, installed and repaired pipes and fixtures for water, drainage, or gas systems, and literally worked with pipes made of lead. Times have changed, and plumbers now use iron, copper and various forms of plastic or PVC piping. Of course, one thing has not changed in all these intervening years. When it's the time to call the plumber, it is almost always an urgent moment. Nothing can be as intimidating as a water leak, and trying to contain the spreading liquid. While the name of plumber generally is associated with water, plumbing is involved in nearly every modern device known to man that uses the properties of a fluid. The properties of a fluid lend themselves to the control and use of a wide range of applications. Our modern home plumbing of course is universally recognized. Yet, plumbing on a grand scale can be seen in such huge projects as the Panama Canal, the Saint Lawrence Seaway, dams such as Boulder Dam, Grand Coulee Dam, and Norris Dam. Boulder Dam has since been named Hoover Dam, in honor of President Herbert Hoover. The use of water engineering in the form of steam power is legendary, and seen in applications such as Robert Fulton's steamboats and the Mississippi River steamboats that literally built the economic infrastructure of the great middle portion of the United States. Along the same lines, steam locomotives provided the tool to develop vast portions of the country because of the economies of shipping by way of the flanged iron wheel on the steel rail. An even more economical way of shipping liquids, of course, is the use of plumbing with giant pipelines. When we talk of plumbing, electrically inclined individuals think of circuits, integrated circuits, and powerful computer chips that function because of the flow of electricity. While technically not fluid, the flow of electricity is a powerful analogy. To some, the use of the flow of water in the sport of jet skis, reigns supreme. In every aspect and application, plumbing is a vital part of our life-styles. Plumbing!
