As the market expansion continues with smart products for the home, it has changed the way people engage with everyday tasks. This had led to a need for professionals in the residential and commercial property service industry to install, maintain, and repair products that did not exist as a commonly found item even a few years ago. If you are not already, learning the basics for repairing, troubleshooting, and installing these next-level devices is worth it to keep your plumbing business at the forefront for your customers.

Hands-Free Devices are Here to Stay

It is vital to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements for appliances that are becoming more commonplace, such as automatic bathroom faucets, toilet flushers, kitchen faucets that fill up pots of water on command, and other conveniences. The plumber’s role is to understand the nuances of installation and how to troubleshoot these devices if they are not working correctly.

Smart Pipes  

Along with home environmental monitoring systems such as Nest and others, the take care of motion detection security, keeping the ambient temperatures comfortable, and even handling turning on the oven to a specific setting or other tasks. Similarly, Smart Pipes work as they monitor how the water is flowing in the home and alerts the homeowner when and where within the system, there is a leak or other issue impeding performance. This monitoring enables homeowners to find small leaks that would otherwise go unnoticed for long periods and create damages such as deteriorated walls or mold infestations. 

These devices are fast becoming a part of not only residential plumbing needs but also commercial. They work to save on wastewater, eliminate the potential for taps to get left on accidentally since they turn off when no movement is sensed, and keep the spread of germs to a minimum because no human hands are needed to operate them.

Another change happening in properties is the upgrade to tankless and solar water heaters. Tankless water heaters bring water to a hot temperature almost immediately, and while solar water heaters have a tank, they are much more economical to run. While both types hook into the plumbing systems of the property, much like traditional water heaters, they require specific hookups, and plumbers should know how they work for maintenance and repairs.

Green Energy Saving Fixtures and Appliances  

Some homes now rely on recycled water. Clean water comes out the tap for use in the kitchen or the bathroom for bathing. Once it goes down the drain, it does not go into the public sewer system. Instead, water becomes gray water that flushes the toilets in the home and is considered “green.” Some municipalities require certification to work on these types of systems, make sure you know the requirements for your area before you offer green plumbing support as part of your service package.

Advanced plumbing technology is here to stay. Homeowners will continue to upgrade their homes to walk-in showers that emit water at the perfect temperature to other convenient plumbing modifications. Plumbing professionals need to have the training and knowledge to install, repair, and perform maintenance on these items to remain a viable option for consumers now and in the future.
