As technology changes, many new products hit the market that help with your home’s efficiency. A lot of these products have to do with your home’s plumbing system. Other plumbing products that were once reserved for businesses are also finding their way into private homes.

If you are interested in learning more about some of the newer plumbing products you can upgrade your home with, you want to read the insightful information provided here.

Bidets are Hygienic and Economical

Bidets have been common bathroom staples in other countries for many years. Some people in the US are finally starting to see the appeal of bidets. Not only is using a bidet more hygienic, but they could also save millions of trees a year if US residents were to make the switch and cut out the need for toilet paper.

Touchless Faucets are Cleaner and Easier to Use

When you wash your hands, you touch the same faucet handle to turn off the water that everyone uses to turn the water on. This transfers a lot of bacteria from faucet handles back to your hands after washing them. In fact, a bathroom faucet harbors more than 6,000 bacteria per square inch.

Replace traditional faucets with touchless ones to allow you to keep your freshly-washed hands clean. These faucets are also easier for toddlers and elderly people with weak or aching hands to activate. The touchless faucets automatically turn the water on when the sensor detects you have placed your hands under the spout.

Freestanding Bathtubs are Making a Come Back

Freestanding bathtubs used to be a regular staple in homes years ago, until they were replaced by numerous other styles including large jetted tubs. However, freestanding bathtubs are making a comeback as more people start to realize the many benefits they offer.

Freestanding bathtubs give you more decorating options, are comfortable due to their shape, are affordable, and are budget friendly. You can also change the outside look of the freestanding bathtub with a paintjob, which allows you to incorporate the tub into your d├ęcor for many years to come.

Whole House Water Softener Has Many Benefits

Water softeners are great for a variety of reasons. Having a whole house water softener system installed in your home helps your hair and skin look and feel great, plus the soft water is easier on your appliances and plumbing.

The water softener removes harsh minerals such as calcium and magnesium and this is what helps to make the water softer and healthier. The removal of the hard minerals prevents build up from the pipes, the plumbing hardware, and the parts of your appliances the water encounters.

His and Her Sinks

His and her sinks are nothing new, but they may be new to you. If you find you and your spouse are always bumping elbows while trying to share the sink in the master bathroom, then you should have his and her sinks installed to replace your single bathroom sink.

Once you have dual sinks in the bathroom, each of you can have the water on the temperature that you want, and you won’t have to worry about waiting your turn or trying to share a small area of space.
