Andrew Jackson was the president when the White House got running water.
Franklin Pierce the 14th President had a bathtub installed in the white house.
James K. Polk the 11th President had gas lights installed.
Rutherford B. Hayes the 19th President had the telephone installed.

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.)
This happened when Jackson was president around 1833.
Millard Fillmore was the first President to have a bathtub with running water. He was also the first President to have a stove in the White House.This is false. The columnist H.L. Mencken, as a joke, said that Millard Fillmore installed the first bathtub in the White House. Later, Mencken admitted that it was a hoax. Beverly Smith, of the Saturday Evening Post, studied all the evidence, and in 1952 said that the evidence pointed to Andrew Jackson installing the first bathtub between 1829 and 1833. He spoke with pride that , in his bathroom, you could have a warm, cold, or a shower bath.
Running water was introduced into the White House under Andrew Jackson in 1831. It was mostly for fire prevention and came only into the lower levels. However they did have a shower and bathtub. It is not known when they put running water into the living quarters upstairs. There is a story that Millard Fillmore had it installed, but that was a hoax, perpetrated by writer H.L. Mencken. It is recorded that Abraham Lincoln had a bathtub which he did not have back home in Springfield.
Around 180 ago seems reasonable. A bathtub of some sort was put in around 1830 when running water was added, mostly for fire protection. My understanding is that they had a boiler in which water was heated, but no hot running water, so the tub would have to be filled via buckets . It was around 20 years later that hot running water was put in.
Running water of a sort was hooked it while Jackson was President around 1833. It was mostly for fire prevention but they had a way to heat it for showers. Running hot water in the living quarters was installed in 1853 under Pierce. Central heat with a furnace was put in in 1842 under Tyler. Filmore had the first cookstove installed .
