Andrew Jackson was the president when the White House got running water. There were wood fired boilers to heat water for baths, so there may have been only a few hot water taps.

What president installed the first bathtub in the White House?

First Bathtub in White HouseBest evidence seems to point to Andrew Jackson as installing the first bathtub with running water between 1829 and 1833. Jackson and his designer spoke with pride that, in their bathroom, you could have a warm, cold, or shower bath. However, running water was only available on the first floor. If someone in the upstairs living quarters wanted a bath, a portable tub was brought in and water carried up to fill it. In 1853 President Franklin Pierce had running water and a hot water heater installed upstairs. He surely had a bathtub but it may have been portable without a built-drain.(There is a legend that Millard Fillmore installed the first tub. .This legend is actually false. The columnist H. L. Mencken made up the story about Millard Fillmore, and later confessed that it is was made up, and that he had no idea who installed the first bathtub with running water.)

Who was the president when they installed running water in the White House?

Andrew Jackson was the first to have running water. Running water was introduced into the White House in 1833(along with central heating). Initially its purpose was to supply the house with drinking water and to fill reservoirs for protection against fire. An engineer named Robert Leckie built the system of reservoirs, pumps, and pipes that supplied the White House, and the Treasury, State, War, and Navy buildings with water. Very soon, a "bathing room" was established in the east wing to take advantage of the fine water supply. The room featured a cold bath, a shower, and a hot bath heated by coal fires under large copper boilers. Some sources will say that it was during the administration of Milliard Filmore but that is a mistake.
