Top Plumbing Trends This Year

There are some exciting things going on in the plumbing industry, and customers get to benefit from all the recent advancements. At Steve Beaton Plumbing, we’re often called to help customers in Redding, CA make improvements to their homes. With some changes to their plumbing, they can make more devices “smart” and can improve their home’s overall efficiency.

Fancy Toilets

Toilets have traditionally been quite basic, but in recent years, they’ve become much more impressive. There are several types of toilets that are far from standard. During the pandemic, we saw a big increase in toilets with bidets. Some have bidets built into them, but you can also have a bidet attached to an existing toilet. Toilets could also feature automatic flushing, just like we have seen in many commercial settings. Further, they could have warmed seats, dryers, night lights, self-cleaning functions, and automatic-closing lids.

Advanced Leak Detection

Dealing with leaks is never a fun thing. Not only could a leak be problematic to fix, but it could also cause serious issues in your home and exacerbate the drought conditions that we deal with in this part of California. Of course, at Steve Beaton Plumbing, we’re always ready to assist customers who are dealing with leaks. For those of you who want to be proactive about this, there are smart leak detectors that you can have installed. These devices continually monitor usage so that they can detect anything unusual. If a leak is suspected, one of these devices can automatically shut off your water system. This can prevent mold or mildew from building up before you’re aware of the situation.

Senior-Friendly Bathrooms

Many older residents in Redding want to stay in their homes as long as possible, but in order to do so, a few changes need to be made to make their bathrooms more accessible. What we can do is make little changes so that people can be safe at home for anyone with mobility issues. We can change a shower so that it has a low or zero threshold, a seating area, multiple showerheads and sprays, and/or a grab bar. We can also set up a heated floor so that things are not so slippery after a shower.

Home Spas

It can be so nice to go to the spa, but it can be an expensive prospect. That’s why many residents are remodeling their homes so that they have spa-like bathrooms. Big soaking tubs, steam showers, saunas, and high-end fixtures are some things that we’re seeing more of this year. We’d be happy to help you modify your bathroom or build a new one from scratch that looks like it could fit in at a luxury hotel or day spa.

You could have minor or major plumbing changes made to your home to make it more functional, efficient, and modern. Let our team at Steve Beaton Plumbing know if you have any questions. Call us to schedule an appointment.
