Transcript of the toilet

Thomas Crapper is often falsely given credit for the invention of the toilet, due to the fact that his business, "Thomas Crapper & co. LTD", produced the majority of the toilets at the time. This made him closely related to the first patent. The Toilet The first flush toilet was invented in 1596, to efficiently dispose of waste. The true inventor was Sir John Harrington who, in the 16th century, invented the very first flush toilet
in attempt to replace chamberpots, which were inconvenient and unsanitary Toilets in the 15th century were often called the crapper, after Thomas Crappers massive production company. The very first flush toilet was designed
to flush waste simply with the pull of a valve. This valve would empty the tank and wash waste out of the bowl. This process was very slow and inconvenient. automatic flush toilet music playing toilet remote control toilet automatic wash and dry toilet Innovations of the Toilet A sensor above the toilet allows it to automatically flush when you are finished Music from a chip plays as the toilet seat is opened, and ends as it closes. In other cases, music is played when flushed. This innovation allows you to open, close, flush, clean, and heat the toilet, all with the touch of a button.

Discovery of underground piping, and of porcelain- a sturdy, waterproof material used to make a large amount of toilets today, and in past centuries. This chart shows all of the different subjects needed to create something such as the flush toilet, and what each subject is used for. Each of these areas eventually come together and create an invention important to society. Queen Elizabeth I was too embarrassed to use the flush toilet built for her by her godson, Sir John Harrington, because she feared that the loud flush would inform people that she had just made a bowel movement. Did you know that 40,000 Americans are injured by toilets each year? fun fact How the toilet works Pulling a chain or pressing a handle opens a valve
this causes water to gush into the bowl.
When the tank empties, the valve is forced closed
the tank refills under pressure from the water supply.

All of this is an example production technology, which includes manufacturing and construction.
