How Plumbing Can Help Stop the Spread of Infectious Diseases.

There is no modern civilization without indoor plumbing. There would be no skyscrapers, filth would fill streets and alleyways – just read a book about the Wild West and, among other things, you’ll see it was wildly unsanitary.

But just when you thought plumbing engineers have come up with every conceivable product to reduce contact with and the spread of bacteria, germs, and viruses, new “miracle” products are set to emerge.

Here are three such examples that can help you enjoy a safer, healthier lifestyle:

Motion Sensor Faucets

You’ve seen them in public restrooms for eons. But only when COVID-19 became the topic and fear of the day did they begin springing up in peoples’ bathrooms. Sure, they’re great for people with arthritis who have difficulty with the simplest of tasks, like turning faucets on and off. Even better, motion sensor faucets feature hands-free operation, thus reducing the likelihood of germs being spread from one family member to another.

Bidet Toilet Seats

Remember the days when you, if you wanted a bidet to cleanse yourself, you could do so, but you still had to keep your toilet. Those days have passed now that bidet toilet seats have made their way onto the plumbing scene. There are multiple makes and models to choose from. These are some of the coolest features and most effective at enhancing sanitary practices:

  • Adjustable nozzle position: Can be adjusted forward or backward to accommodate your unique shape and size.
  • Warm air dryer:  Great for users who want a true hands-free experience and eliminate the use of toilet paper.
  • Deodorizer: Helps to reduce bathroom odors through an odor-neutralizing filter.
  • Nozzle oscillation: Makes the wash nozzle move back and forth for a wider cleaning area.
  • Massaging pulse: Makes the water stream pulsate for a massaging experience.
  • Child mode: Reduces the water spray pressure and positions the nozzles more forward to accommodate children.
  • LED night light: Provides a soft glowing night light for the bathroom.
  • Wide spray: Allows the user to adjust the width of the spray to their desired setting.

Best of all, you can accomplish all that and more with a remote controller.  Yes, it’s a technology that’s more than a little amazing.

Motion Sensor Toilet Flush

The primary benefit of a touchless toilet is obvious – you don’t have to touch it to flush it. Toilets are breeding grounds for bacteria and germs, so anytime you can avoid touching them is a plus. Touchless technology reduces your exposure to germs by eliminating the need to touch the toilet to flush it, which is both convenient and beneficial to everyone.
