Our house plumbing system is maybe one of the most overlooked areas. We do not usually spend hours thinking about how we can improve and make it better unless we have an issue and need to call a plumber. With advancements in technology, new models of our daily appliances have erupted. Here are the following plumbing upgrades that we all need to be excited about!
BrainPipes is an app that can easily detect any water leaks in your home. If ever there is a leak, an alarm is triggered that informs you of a leak or potential malfunction. You’ll then get a notification that tells you where the leak is actually coming from.
2. Sensory Activation
For a more practical and reliable way of doing things, sensors are now being installed in sinks that can easily turn on or off the water. This is particularly helpful if your hands are full and you can’t reach the tap. This practice is also being applied in touchless showers accompanied with automatic music players, now you can shower and listen to your favorite music at the same time. Be ready to take control of your plumbing system with just a wave of your hands.
3. Greywater Recycling
For all people looking for a green touch in their home, greywater recycling is the new trend! Greywater is all the water that has already been used at home, from showers, sinks, washing machines, and dishwashers. Unlike water from the toilet, these waters require little treatment and can be reused using a sophisticated system. All you need is a professional greywater system installer and you’re good to go.
4. Efficient Sprinklers
Sprinkler systems are becoming more efficient and can now use less water when compared to traditional systems. The sprinklers are even able to distribute water more evenly on the lawn and have a higher level of water efficiency.
5. Fancy Toilets
Nowadays, high-tech versions of toilets have sensors to know when to clean your bum, keep the seat warm, stop the need for paper, and clean itself. Some toilets even come with the option of foot-warming, dual-flush, LED lightings and more. The toilet is slowly becoming the next luxury item to have in your house.
The plumbing industry has a bright future ahead and more advancements are sure to come along. The main focus will be on how to facilitate people’s lives while being a more efficient and effective system.
