Best Commercial Plumbing Trends of 2021

Whether you’re considering building a new commercial property or looking at renovating your existing one, these commercial plumbing trends are some of the more exciting and current technologies in store for 2021, and most definitely the years to come.

Sustainable fittings

Sustainable fittings aren’t new to commercial plumbing but it’s never too late to go green! Saving water is a great way to cut business costs. Methods of saving water have shifted over the years, giving way to more innovative technologies when it comes to tapware and toilets. Features like auto-turn-off taps and half flush toilets are just a couple of popular concepts you can invest in.

Touchless plumbing

Touchless plumbing features have become a priority in most commercial buildings, especially after the pandemic, so you can expect this trend to continue for some time. Hands-free sinks & soap dispensers, automatic hand dryers, and even hands-free flushing are all becoming part of the “new normal”.

Greywater systems

Greywater systems are able to treat water using biological and chemical processes, allowing them to be recycled for functions like flushing or watering a garden. Their recycling feature makes greywater systems an in-demand renovation. Would greywater features be more cost-effective for your commercial property?

Leak detectors

Usually, by the time a water leak is spotted or you notice a shift in water pressure, the damage is done. And calling the plumber at this stage, while unavoidable, can lead to some costly repairs. With a smart water leak detector installed, the monitor will be connected to your property’s water mains, and will be able to notify you of a water leak at the earliest.

Solar heating

One of the most popular trends by far is switching from gas-heated water systems to solar hot water systems. A solar panel will make use of unused space on your property’s roof and can easily produce enough electricity to power a commercial hot water system. Investing in solar heating isn’t just a more sustainable choice; it helps you reduce your property’s water heating and energy costs too.
