How Is Plumbing Changing?
Better filtration systems: One of the most important elements in any plumbing system, the filtration system catches minerals like magnesium and chlorine, to make your water supply safe to drink. Many current filtration systems are made of a membrane-like filter that catches particles and minerals and keeps them from entering your water supply. But moving into the future, filtration systems will consist of activated carbon and UV light, which filter even the smallest particles while killing bacteria and viruses.
Tankless water heaters: You probably have a large water tank somewhere on your property, but tankless water heaters are becoming more popular due to their energy efficiency. These water heaters only heat water when it’s needed. Instead of heating up an entire tank, they only heat the specific amount of water you use at that point in time.
Low-flow bathroom fixtures: Low-flow toilets, showerheads, and faucets are becoming more popular as people look for new ways to conserve water. These fixtures reduce the amount of water you use but more importantly, they don’t perform any different.
What Technology Is Used in Plumbing?
Smart technology: Smart technology is now used in many systems, including HVAC and plumbing systems. It allows you to monitor various things from an app on your phone or your computer, such as water usage. You can also receive alerts if there’s a problem that needs your immediate attention.
Smart toilets: These devices include things like a seat heater, automatic flushing sensors, automatic tank cleaners and deodorizers, and some models even have a bidet feature.
Touchless plumbing: You’ve probably seen touchless features in public restrooms, like automatic faucets, automatic soap dispensers, and automatic flushing. Industry experts predict that over the coming years we’ll see more touchless features integrated into home plumbing systems, so homeowners can enjoy the same convenience and comfort.
