Advancements in Plumbing Technology


We rarely think of plumbing as a science that’s constantly evolving and benefiting from innovations in technology. Here at Sun Plumbing, we have made it our mission to always stay a few steps ahead of trends in the plumbing world ensuring that we can address the needs of our clients. Did you know that in the last five to ten years there have been quite a few advancements in plumbing technology? As a result, homes are now cleaner, more comfortable, and more efficient.

Many of today’s plumbing products came about as a result of a desire for new technology relating to a more hygienic living area. For instance, touch-free plumbing fixtures are popping up everywhere right now. This new technology provides a hands-off approach with toilets and faucets alike, reducing the spread of germs and bacteria. Today’s innovations in plumbing will most surely diminish the build-up of germs and, therefore, lead to a cleaner home.

Recent developments pertaining to the kitchen and bathroom have centered on making people more comfortable. Current trends involve products that utilize LED lights and displays in plumbing products. For example, some companies have begun adding LED lights in toilet bowls! Yes, these lights allow the user to use the bathroom in the dark.

It seems like everyone is “going green” and the plumbing industry is no different. There is a movement toward more environmentally friendly plumbing. And considering the fact that energy efficient products save money by cutting water waste and energy consumption, this is a win-win for consumers and the environment alike. Today, going green doesn’t mean a sacrifice in style, performance, or finances, as these products become more affordable than ever.

One example of “green” plumbing advances is the motion sensor-operated plumbing fixtures. Many times, when people use sinks and toilets, they use more water than needed. To counter this problem, sensors are being installed to restrict the water flow, saving homeowners water and money.
