This was one of those myths that just won't go away. here was, in fact, a Thomas Crapper from England, and he was actually a plumber- a rather famous one ! He served as the Royal Sanitary Engineer for several members of the British Royalty, but he didn't invent the modern crapper.
Seated toilets with drainage systems date back to 2500 B.C.
The first valve-type flush toilet was introduced in 1738 by a man named J.F. Brondel. Of course, the "water closet" had been invented 150 years earlier by John Harrington, and the valve toilet would undergo many serious revisions before it came to resemble the modern bathroom fixture we use today.


Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
