We live in a world where products seem to be good today, better tomorrow, and unbelievable next week. No matter what industry you're passionate about, it's hard to keep up. Cars, phones, game consoles, TVs, refrigerators, and even shoes have built-in tech that makes them more user-friendly, energy-efficient, and well, to put it simply, cool. With all that's going on in the tech world, it should come as no surprise that plumbing hasn't been left out. Here's just a sampling of how you can incorporate new plumbing technology into your home!
Tankless Water Heater
While not the newest of items on our list, tankless water heaters deserve mention nonetheless. With instant access to hot water, you'll be wasting less water while waiting for the shower to warm up, which means big savings on your energy. Or, since you'll never run out of hot water, you can stay in as long as you want.
Nobody likes cleaning toilets, so the introduction of self-cleaning toilets is quite exciting in the plumbing and home improvement world. In reality, these are toilets that have waste-repellent linings that are able to clean themselves as needed. Not only does this save you time, but it also saves you from having to clean the bowl!
Motion-Activated Water Fixtures
You see them in restaurants and retail shops, so why not in your house? Motion and touch-activated faucets are great for sinks, tubs, and showers, as they help reduce the spread of germs and limit the amount of water that will be used. Installing motion-activated water faucets in your home is a healthy and money-saving upgrade!
Smart Appliance Compatibility
Washing machines, dishwashers, fridges and freezers, and other water-using appliances are all utilizing smart technology to run more efficiently, keep food properly tempered, wash clothes and dishes perfectly, and more. If you're going to be installing a water-using appliance be sure to speak with a plumber who can ensure it will work perfectly within your home.
