We have come a long way from running to the outhouse late at night. Over the last 100 years the plumbing industry has had a boom of innovations that cultivates a user friendly lifestyle. There have been so many practical inventions in plumbing that innovators have begun to focus on ease of use and making a product more comfortable. The latest innovations in plumbing require reworking old designs, and adding technology to improve cleanliness. The products that are catapulting the industry forward are low flow technologies, touch free faucets, and water filtration systems.

Millions of people are installing low flow products that will help the planet by saving water and ultimately reducing their monthly expenses. Low flow products reduce overall water usage without compromising performance. These products include toilets, shower heads, and faucets. Environmental laws have recently been passed that require new toilets being sold to use less than 6 liters of water per flush. Before these regulations were implemented a single toilet flush could have used as much as 26 liters of water. Low flow shower heads and faucets work by aerating the water as it comes out of the shower head. Aerating is when air is mixed in with the water stream but does not interrupt the flow of water.
