18 Carat Is The Gold Standard

Atlas Plumbing, in Dallas, and in honor of World Toilet Day on November 30, 2017, has a little humor about a serious item to share with you. It's about The Throne In Your Home. A little background for you about this priceless video below before you watch it, and then we will move on to discuss your home throne.

In this video, you will see a visit to a real Golden Throne. "America" by Maurizio Cattelan, is a fully functioning, solid 18k gold toilet that is on display at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Worth over a millions dollars, and was created using a Kohler toilet, a foundry in Florence cast this one of a kind real working fixture. Here at Atlas Plumbing in Dallas, we believe this is a great piece to share with you  leading up to November 30 on World Toilet Day. Did you realize that you have a symbol of opulence right there in your own bathroom?

Did you know that many months ago the Guggenheim Museum in New York unveiled a gleaming, 18-karat gold, fully functioning toilet in the Guggenheim Museum?  Yes, it's true and what's more any visitor can stand in line to gaze at this unusual display of art, and then actually use it, finishing with a flush if you are so inclined. Maurizio Cattelan, the Italian artist who created this fantastic toilet exhibit, named it “America” - an obvious statement on American excess.

Now to the important part the reason for this article. Not everyone in the world has a toilet gold or otherwise.Perceptions about having a golden toilet here in America speak to luxury in the simplest of terms. Outside of America it wouldn't probably be done. Unfortunately the real facts state that Globally, 2.4 billion people or 15% of the people in the world do not have access to a toilet and proper sanitation. This is in and of itself something most Americans would not often think about honestly. There are people in the world who have never in their lives sat on a toilet or have even enjoyed a hot shower. That fact alone is hard to believe in this day and time in all honesty.

You may be chuckling, but we are about to get very serious. The Throne In Your Home is important indeed. To you, your family, to Dallas Water Utilities , and to the water treatment plants in and around Dallas proper and it's surrounding suburbs like Frisco, Plano, Richardson, Garland, University Park and Highland Park. 

Think about this for a moment. Other countries who don't have toilets or running water deal with a completely different set of circumstances for health and sanitation in their lives. What if the return on investment in sanitation in your community here in America means a decrease in medical costs, and an overall increase in healthy people? Clean water, addresses sanitation as part of this work because we know that the benefits of clean water can be lost when hygiene doesn’t also improve. Combining clean public restrooms and hand-washing stations, in developing countries is still gaining positive outcomes and yields big gains - these interventions can promote better health and safety standards by 57 percent, reduce chronic malnutrition by 40 percent, reduce school absenteeism among girls by 50 percent. These are really food for thought. Most of us don't realize how important a toilet is.

Now all that said, odds are you’ll never use the Guggenheim gold toilet, and most of us may never have to travel to countries who do not have these benefits. But now that you know how toilets and sanitation impact lives, safety, dignity, and human potential around the world, you can improve the odds for some of the millions of people who see any toilet as an unreachable luxury and make the appropriate selection for your home by selecting a WaterSense approved toilet for your next remodel project.

The city inspector was pleased with what he saw when he inspected my new tankless water heater. He said that Atlas Plumbing had installed everything correctly, where he often sees other plumbing companies not installing water heaters correctly.
