How Plumbing Is Flushing Into the Future

Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - It's scary to imagine a life without proper plumbing. In fact, most people seem to take modern-day plumbing for granted. But the plumbing industry has grown by leaps and bounds throughout the years.

Before the introduction of modern-day plumbing luxuries such as sewage drainage and disposal systems, flushing toilets and water treatment systems, diseases ran rampant due to the lack of clean water. Diseases such as polio, cholera, and even the black plague took the lives of far too many people before modern plumbing was introduced as we know it today.

There was a time when waste was dumped onto streets, or even into rivers, instead of being properly disposed. This unfortunately contaminated drinking water, which helped spread those killer diseases. However, that's a thing of the past. In today's world, clean water is easily accessible thanks to modern-day plumbing luxuries.

Although the plumbing industry has grown by leaps and bounds throughout the years, the industry continues to look for new ways to improve. The industry is now focusing on improving efficiency, conserving water and reducing costs for homeowners. And the way to accomplish those goals may involve a greater focus on "green" technology.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing is an example of a company dedicated to improving the plumbing industry.

"Mr. Rooter Plumbing is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of customers and the nation, through sanitation and continuously seeking ways to improve through industry innovation," says Mary Kennedy Thompson, president of Mr. Rooter Plumbing. "We are working to be recognized as the world's leading company in the plumbing and drainage service industry."

The future of plumbing will look to find new ways to reduce water usage without sacrificing performance or aesthetic appeal. With a great deal of home technologies turning to solar power, the plumbing industry may follow suit. For example, traditional water heaters may eventually be replaced by solar-powered water heaters, which would use free energy from the sun to heat water for showers, dishwashers and washing machines. In addition, other plumbing fixtures such as flush valves could also incorporate solar power technology someday.

Without the benefits of modern plumbing, the world would not be able to sustain life as it is today. Thankfully, the plumbing industry is continuing to find new ways to improve, and new ways to save homeowners money by conserving water.
