Get the Most Out of Your Plumbing: 5 Upgrades to Ask from Your Plumber

Posted on

As your business grows, so does the need for modernizing the utilities in your commercial premises. Plumbing is a great place to start because it directly impacts the comfort and convenience of your workers and clients. Plumbers are the backbone of maintenance in many organizations and can be instrumental when looking for ways to bring in new customers. What are some of the upgrades a plumber can do to modernize your plumbing system?

1. Smart Toilets 

Smart toilet features offer convenience and higher hygiene standards, while also saving you money on your utility bills. Smart toilets may not be cheap, but with their growing popularity, you can expect more affordable options in the future. 

These smart features include automatic flushing, water-saving features, overflow protection, and sensor-enabled commercial LED lighting. These upgrades will make your bathroom a delight for years to come.

2. Touchless Fixtures 

Reducing contact with different surfaces in the bathroom and toilet is very desirable since many clients are more sensitive to contracting infections from common spaces. If you're going completely germ-free in your home, consider installing touchless fixtures, including touchless faucets, UV light sanitizers, and automatic cistern systems.  

3. Smart Water-Leak Sensors

Nowadays, you can have smart water-leak sensors that connect directly with your phone. These devices make it easy for you to see if there's a leak in any part of your plumbing. They can shut off automatically and send alerts should they detect a leak (saving you some major headaches). They also make it easier for the plumber to identify leaks and fix them quickly.

4. Greywater Recycling System 

Greywater is wastewater generated from bathroom sinks, showers, and washing machines. It doesn't include water from toilets or kitchen sinks. Greywater recycling systems are one way to reuse greywater instead of sending it down your drain. 

These systems can be especially useful in hospitality establishments where greywater is generated in high amounts. The savings can be significant, and it also marks your brand as eco-friendly. 

5. Smart Lawn Irrigation 

The water bill for landscaping irrigation for a large property can be quite high. You can lower the bill by deploying a smart lawn irrigation system. Based on your geographic location, it will use weather data and soil moisture sensors to determine when and how much water your plants need. 

You'll save money on your monthly utility bills while ensuring that your plants stay healthy and beautiful throughout the year.

Upgrading your plumbing system can change your commercial premises by offering customer hygiene, convenience, and higher water efficiency. Contact a plumber to discuss tech upgrades that can fit your workplace.
