Plumbing History 

Plumbing originated during the ancient civilizations such as the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, and Chinese civilizations as they developed public baths and needed to provide potable water, and drainage of wastes. Standardized earthen plumbing pipes with broad flanges making use of asphalt for preventing leakages appeared in the urban settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization by 2700 B.C.[2] The Romans used lead pipe inscriptions to prevent water theft.
Improvement in plumbing systems was very slow, with virtually no progress made from the time of the Roman system of aqueducts and lead pipes until the growth of modern cities. Until then waste disposal systems merely consisted of collecting waste and dumping it on ground or into a river. In the 19th century, public health authorities began pressing for better waste disposal systems to be installed. Eventually the development of separate, underground water and sewage systems eliminated open sewage ditches and cesspools.
Most large cities today pipe solid wastes to treatment plants in order to separate and partly purify the water before emptying into streams or other bodies of water. For potable water use, galvanized iron piping was commonplace in the United States from the late 1800s until around 1960. After that period, copper took over, first with soft copper with flared fittings, then with rigid copper tubing utilizing soldered fittings. The use of lead for potable water declined sharply after World War II because of the dangers of lead poisoning. At this time, copper piping was introduced as a better and safer alternative to lead pipes.[3]

Argyle is a city in Denton County, Texas, United States, with a population of 3,282 as of the 2010 census. The master-planned community of Lantana, Texas (estimated population 6,000 as of May 2008) shares the Argyle mailing address.

The first white settlement, consisting of a few families, occurred in the Argyle area in the 1850s. The place was then known as Pilot Knob or Waintown. The settlement gradually acquired a few amenities in the late 1800s: a school in 1875, a Baptist church in 1876 and a post office in 1878. The community was formally founded and renamed Argyle in 1881 by, after the Texas and Pacific railroad built a track through the area. Some believe a railroad surveyor named the town after a garden in France. However others believe the town to be named after Argyll Scotland. Also around this time was when Sam Bass an infamous outlaw who stole $60,000 in gold coins from the Union Pacific Railroad was rumored to have stashed the gold in a cave. Sam Bass died when he was 27 and it was rumored he never lived to retrieve the gold, so to this day it is believed to be somewhere in the hills surrounding the town.
Growth was very slow during the nineteenth century, and by 1890 Argyle only had a population of 148. The town did boast several agriculture-related industries, such as grist mills, general stores, and a cotton gin. In 1885 Argyle built a two-story brick school, and population grew until it reached 238 in 1930. A bank was also established in 1906, a little red brick building with a drugstore in the front. The bank wasn't around long before it was robbed in 1912. The robbers made away with $1700 and were never caught. No one knows for sure who did it but rumors have included Jesse James, the Dalton Brothers, the Story's or the Chadwick Gang. Electricity and telephone service became available in the mid-1930s.
The Great Depression took its toll on the Argyle area, and population declined to only ninety in 1950. Argyle incorporated as a separate city on September 19, 1960, with M.H. Wilson as the first mayor. Gradually the town grew in population as more people from the Dallas-Fort Worth area discovered its rural charm. By the 1970s a number of retail establishments were located in Argyle, and the population reached 1,575 in 1990. The most recent Census Bureau estimate is that Argyle's population has doubled from that figure to 3,282 (2010). The high rate of growth is expected to continue as part of the general development of northern areas in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex
