When it comes to plumbing, one of the most important things you need is a licensed plumber who understands modern plumbing needs. One of life’s constants is change, which also means our plumbing fixtures and styles are changing. Having a licensed plumber is great, but if they don’t keep themselves up to date with the latest trends in plumbing, you may find yourself with a problem that cannot be solved.
A licensed plumber is someone who can verify that they not only studied plumbing, but they also passed a plumbing exam, meets Florida plumbing standards, and has permission to legally provide plumbing services.
A good plumber not only knows about the nitty gritty of plumbing, they will also be sure to keep themselves educated about the “what’s new” in the plumbing world. Technology and design is changing everywhere, and plumbing is no different. Here are a few trends that a good plumber will be able to help you with:
ETWater is a new outdoor irrigation mechanism that can help you keep track of the amount of water your lawn needs. Just like the rest of the world, plumbing is also going green, and having this device installed takes your irrigation needs to a new green level.
A greywater recycling system will also help your home become eco-friendlier. Basically, your used water from showers, baths, rinsing water from the kitchen and dish water can be used to water your plants. Your plumber needs to be aware of such mechanisms so that you can save wherever you can.
Brain pipes are another new invention in plumbing. Adopting the idea that your pipes can have brains, these devices are sensitized to the amount of water you use and can even prevent damage in your pipes caused by leaks. A friend to the clued-in plumber, a foe to the not–so clued-in one.
Microchip technology is still going strong, and more home appliances are being installed with these chips. They can help with water usage, water level, temperature control, and water conservation. An on-trend plumber will know about these chips, how they operate, and if they are suitable for your setup.
Saving water should be on your priority list. It’s not only better for the environment, but its better on your pocket as well. Newer toilets use water more efficiently than the older versions.
More people are going for freestanding bathtubs, as opposed to the traditional corner bathtub. Converting to or installing a freestanding bathtub will come with drainage and faucet challenges that only a good and trusted plumber can help you with.
If you have a foot-activated faucet you may have already experienced the challenge to repair it. The foot-activated faucet is more sensitive than the traditional faucet, and so are its inner workings – your plumber should know how to manage both.
All this new technology in the plumbing world requires the expertise of a licensed plumber. Getting the right plumber sounds like a mammoth task, but at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric we have many experienced and on-trend plumbing contractors available to help you take your plumbing to a new level.
