With so many advances in technology over the last few years, it’s no surprise that some amazing products have made their way into home systems including plumbing, electric, and HVAC. These great innovations in the plumbing industry can take your home to the future and beyond.
Touchless fixtures have been around for a while, but have just started making their way into home construction. Touchless faucets are cleaner and don’t need as much maintenance as traditional taps. Some appliances and faucets now come with LED screens that show you the temperature. Others have red and blue lights to indicate water temperature.
Cutting-edge cleaning technology takes the ickiness out of toilet scrubbing. One innovation disperses cleaning chemicals at every flush into the bowl without wasting cleaning products.
Better Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are just now becoming popular as well. Heated with gas or electricity, these units supply water on-demand instead of keeping a huge tank of water heated all the time.
Save money by using a solar-powered water heater. Water travels beneath panels and returns to the unit for use leaving the need for electricity or gas fuels behind.
Smarter Water Management
Brain pipes are the next thing in home automation technology. These systems monitor your home to detect leaks and monitor water use. A leak triggers a notification that takes you directly to the problem.
New, smart technology allows you to watch your lawn and know exactly how much water it needs to stay healthy. It even measures rainfall, so you can adjust watering accordingly.
Greywater is water that moves out of your home from tubs and showers, sinks, and washing machines that is reusable instead of being sent into the sewer system. Greywater recycling takes this water and applies it to your lawn.
