The world we live in today is driven by innovation and technology. For homeowners, that’s defined by saying “hello” to popular names such as Siri, Alexa and Google. The new advances in home automation don’t stop there. Plumbing technology is also making major strides to create a safer and more appealing home.
While “plumbing technology” may not sound the most fascinating, homeowners certainly know how important it is to have a plumbing system that operates smoothly. Avoiding inconvenient plumbing, drain or sewer repairs is by far more appealing than asking Alexa to turn on Elton John – right?
Rest assured the newest plumbing technology features products with improved efficiency and user-friendliness. But the breakthrough with these new plumbing products is highlighted by the more modern and stylish designs.
These new items will be great upgrades in either the bathroom or kitchen. Some of them are simply a smart investment, while others are going to be the perfect solution for a homeowner who needs to relax after a long day’s work.
1. American Standard ActiClean® Self-Cleaning Toilet
Who wouldn’t love crossing “Clean the toilet” off the to-do list all together? This toilet cleans itself and is also WaterSense approved, meaning it uses 1.28 gallons per flush compared to some toilets that use 3.5 gallons!
2. Grohe Blue® Pure
This water system is unique compared to most regular kitchen faucets. Not only does the Grohe Blue Pure offer filtered still water, it also has the technology to turn ordinary tap water into chilled carbonated water. So, when it’s time for a beverage on the patio, throw some sliced lemon in a glass and add some refreshing sparkling water.
3. TOTO Aero-Jet® Shower Heads
Toto’s Aero-Jet technology is the newest way to save water and enjoy a better shower experience. By infusing air into each water droplet, these showerheads are designed to use less water without sacrificing water pressure.
4. Grohe SmartControl
Imagine having the ability to design your perfect shower right at your fingertips. Maybe you prefer to have larger, slower rain droplets to massage away a long day. Turn the volume all the way down for a finer spray shower that delivers a softer mist. Rediscover your shower experience with this personalized technology.
5. TOTO Washlet® Toilet
Toto’s new Washlet system features just about everything you could want in a toilet, including: a self-cleaning wand, electrolyzed water for disinfectant, heated seat, warm air dryer, toilet deodorizer, auto open/close lid, and it uses Dynamax Tornado Flush, which uses 20% less water while creating a quieter flush. This toilet is designed to perfectly compliment your bathroom!
6. Grohe FootControl Faucet
When it comes to the list of plumbing fixtures that make life easier, this one’s near the top! Grohe’s hands-free faucet allows the busy kitchens to be efficient, while saying goodbye to messy hands and extra germs. The design of this faucet is professional, clean and offers the convenience of foot-activation.
7. American Standard Deep Soak™ Tub Drains
This new line of bath drains allows for a higher water level in the bathtub. Soak away the stress of the day with this comfortable bathing experience. The Deep Soak drain products work with standard, whirlpools and air baths. Awwwww… so relaxing!
8. TOTO EcoPower Faucet
When it comes to finding the most reliable and eco-friendly plumbing fixture in the industry, the EcoPower faucet is the answer. Most faucets with a sensor require either a electrical connection or set of batteries. But with the EcoPower technology, the electrical current is produced as water flows through a small turbine inside the faucet. That means zero electricity usage too!
9. Grohe Sense
Move over Alexa, meet Grohe Sense. When it comes to home automation, everyone appreciates knowing their home is protected. For plumbing purposes, Grohe Sense is as safe as you can get. It operates by detecting water leaks, frost risk, and sensing temperature and humidity in case any issues arise. The minimalist design blends in to the surroundings making this a must have for homeowners and property owners.
10. Grohe F-Digital Deluxe
Transform your shower into your own personal spa. This shower system uses light, sound and steam to create your desired experience. There may not be a better representation of just how far plumbing technology has come than the F-Digital Deluxe. Indulge in this new era of bathing with the latest and greatest!
