The plumbing work in jails and prisons is simple as can be, yet the installations are of necessity as full and complete as that of a hotel or club house. Most of the plumbing work in prisons is in the tiers of cells, each one of which is provided with a lavatory and water closet for the convenience of the prisoners.

In addition to the plumbing work in the cells, a prison requires a kitchen, bakery and laundry, as fully equipped with fixtures as would be a hotel designed to accommodate an equal number of people. In the keeper's quarters toilet and bathing facilities should not be overlooked, and a bath room for the prisoners is a vital necessity, where at least once a week each inmate can have a thorough scrubbing.
