When you walk into a home improvement store, you probably aren’t immediately struck by the latest, greatest sensation in the plumbing world. However, the past decade has seen such an impressive uptick in plumbing technology and new products that even the homeowner who’s not quick to jump on trends should take note. With so many green, hygienic, and aesthetically pleasing plumbing products than ever before, you may want to consider an update for your Alice, Texas, home.
Although touchless plumbing fixtures have been the industry standard in commercial construction for some time, they have transitioned to homes only recently. Using a motion sensor, this handy technology makes it simple to turn on the water without actually touching the faucet. They also require less maintenance than traditional valve and faucet systems.
Tankless Water Heaters
Another technology that’s been around for some time but just now starting to appear in the average household is the tankless water heater. These devices use pipes heated with gas or electric burners, to supply a steady, on-demand hot water supply no matter what the temperature is like outside. With the proper anti-scald devices, you’ll have that perfect temperature whenever you use the sink or shower.
Self-Cleaning Toilet Devices
No one loves to scrub the toilet, and most of the time, it’s such a disgusting chore that you’ll do anything to put it off a little while longer. If this describes you, then you’ll love several of the new cleaning devices that have come on the market recently. Tablets that you place in the toilet’s tank or hook on the bowl work fairly well. However, the Little Blue Elephant is the most innovative of the bunch. By installing it in the tank on the refill valve, you won’t have to worry about scrubbing warfare ever again.
With such amazing new technology in the plumbing industry, there’s no reason not to implement some new gadgets in your home.
