History of Water Heater - Steam Culture

Most of us get squeaky clean with a steaming hot shower, but how do we get that steaming hot water....

On this edition of Steam Culture, we are learning about Edwin Ruud, a mechanical engineer. Ultimately, he obtained the patents for our hot water heaters that we use today. Even steam boilers can be set up to provide hot water to apartment buildings and the like.

How did people in the old days get clean? Saturday Showers in the scrub tub! Today, we can all be thankful that weekly showers have been replaced by today's hot water heaters. A BIG thanks to Edwin Ruud!

If you have any steamy questions that you want Brent to answer, email him at steamculture@wareinc.com. Be sure to join us next Friday for the latest on Steam Culture.
