Kohler on TV

As many of you know, Kohler is one of the most popular and well-known manufacturers of plumbing fixtures and supplies in the U.S. In fact, a representative of the Kohler family is even on the Plumbing Museum Board of Directors! Recently, we saw a clever advertisement for the Kohler company on TV and wanted to share it here.

Visiting the Loo at the Olympics

Week 1 of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London are underway. To prepare for the thousands of athletes, coaches and spectators visiting the UK for the Games, the Olympic committee had to think of everything; and that includes plumbing! It is said that there are as many as 10,000 temporary toilets located in and around the Olympic Village in London. There are also some innovative, "green" methods in place to help deal with the increased need for plumbing capacity. For instance, the pool water used to clean the filters in the Aquatic Center is reused to flush the facility's toilets. Check out more interesting, Olympic facts by reading this article from The Guardian.

Waste not, want not

Read about this one-of-a-kind, toilet technology here. If only we could get one of these on display at the Plumbing Museum... Article and photo are courtesy of Engadget.

Welcome Back Artists for Humanity!

In honor of Leap Day 2012, our neighbors at J.C. Cannistraro hosted a benefit for AFHBoston right here in our very own Plumbing Museum! Well-documented in Plumbing Museum lore is the fact that the talented students at Artists for Humanity were largely responsible for the graphics and displays that add so much color and life to our collection. Take a look at a few photos from this fun event, and consider turning to AFH for all your creative business needs!

Flushing Away the Giants...Hopefully

Our next door neighbors at Cannistraro utilized the Plumbing Museum space this afternoon for a Super Bowl Rally fit for a true Plumbing Contractor!

Wings and 5-foot subs were on the menu, guests watched previous Patriots' Super Bowl footage, and Giants fans wallowed in sadness as they watched their beloved logo hit the bottom of the bowl!

As proud Watertown, MA residents, The Plumbing Museum proudly endorses New England in Sunday's big game! Go Pats!
