Advent of the washerless cartridge in 1947 seen as progress by most plumbers

Once upon a time, not so many years ago, it was easy for any amateur to repair leaking faucets.

The job could be done with a screwdriver and a wrench. All you needed to do was replace an inexpensive little rubber washer. The job took five minutes, You could find instructions in any decent how-to book.

My, how times have changed.
