We stay on top of the latest plumbing trends and technology here at GF James Plumbing Services. It helps us provide high-quality services that earn us a reliable and long-term client base. Every year, there are new plumbing innovations to keep an eye on, and these are our top picks for 2018.

Electronic Shower Products

Despite what your mother told you about mixing electronics and water, hundreds of electric products designed specifically for shower have started to hit the plumbing sector this year. Lights, speakers, internet connections, you name it! Showers are getting a head-to-toe electric makeover thanks to the latest technology. From warming up your shower with an app to blasting your favourite tunes from beneath the stream, showers are about to get a lot more fun.

Smart Pipes

It’s often incredibly difficult to know exactly where a pipe leak is coming from. When pipes are under your home or in the walls, it can be a huge challenge to pinpoint any kind of issue. However, pipes are becoming smarter. They are now being given sensors that can let you know where leaks are and their size so you can find an appropriate solution.

Trenchless Piping

When you’re renovating a home, or embarking on a commercial building project, installing new pipes tends to include digging into the ground and putting in some long hours and heavy labour. Trenchless pipes allow installers the ability to feed the new pipe through the old one. This can be done by bursting the old pipe by pushing the new one through with a significant amount of force. Alternatively, you can apply adhesive to the inside of the old pipe which gets it working like new again and saves you money.
