You can’t avoid it, and it’s here to stay. I’m talking about technology. It has taken over all areas of life. From the lights that shine in our neighborhood streets to ordering coffee in advance in the morning. New technologies have taken over in all kinds of forms. Most homeowners would not be inclined to research the latest plumbing technologies unless something were to happen to the plumbing system. It’s taking place right before our eyes: brain pipes, smart pipes, cloud-based, and app-controlled pipes and appliances–––the list goes on.
Smart Plumbing Technologies Are Gradually Becoming More Affordable
The fact is, we now have water heaters connected to an app (application, a software application or software program loaded on a phone/tablet). Toilets that use less than a gallon of water, as well as light up — zero gravity bathtubs. Additionally, pipe monitoring systems, that monitor your pipes right from your smartphone. Adding some of the new technologies to your home will allow consumers to save on water and energy with monitoring. Additionally, smart plumbing technologies are gradually becoming more affordable.
