Plumbing and high-tech. Those probably aren't two words you would ever use together. However, that may change. There have been many advances to plumbing over the years. In today's world, you can purchase a variety of "smart" bathroom plumbing fixtures that are both fun and innovative.
So what makes these bathroom plumbing fixtures high-tech? Here are three cool features:
One interesting feature found in both bathtubs and showers is chromatherapy. While the word might sound complex, it essentially means light therapy. With chromatherapy, you can infuse your bath or shower with a variety of colored lights. These lights can help you feel calmer or more awake, depending on the color you choose. If you don't want to see a single color, you can have the system cycle through all of the available colors. Chromatherapy might not completely change the way you bathe, but it is a fun little feature that could make bathing a lot more fun.
2. Controllable Toilets
Controllable toilets are another innovation to bathroom plumbing. There are a plethora of high-tech toilets that allow for a fully customized experience. Even better, most of these toilets feature remote controls.
Some toilets have fully programmable features, such as heated seats or bidets. There's also toilets that feature motion sensors that open, close, and flush the toilet automatically. Some toilets feature self-deodorizing systems, which ensure that the bathroom never smells again. If your cold feet bother you in the morning, you can also find a toilet that will warm your feet. There are even toilets with built-in speaker systems, which allow you to play music.
While some of these features may be a bit silly, the rest are actually quite innovative. After all, these high-tech toilets can make your daily visits a lot more pleasant.
3. Smart Faucets
Finally, smart faucets are another high-tech upgrade to your plumbing. While a smart faucet might sound like a gimmick, they are actually very functional.
If you hate running (and wasting) water waiting for it heat, there is a faucet that can help you avoid that. Faucets with built-in thermometers allow you to customize the temperature of the water – just touch the screen and select your desired temperature. There are also faucets with built-in sensors that automatically turn the water on and off – so you don't have to.
While plumbing fixtures may not make you think futuristic, that may change soon. With all of these high-tech features already available, the future of plumbing may just be fun and exciting.
