Plumbing Industry Trends 2018


From new systems and fixtures to advancements in technology, the plumbing industry is always evolving. Whether you’re a trade professional, supplier, home or business owner, be on the lookout for these top trends in 2018.


Brand New Pipes


In 2018, more and more individuals, families and businesses are choosing to replace their outdated plumbing systems. Many older homes and commercial buildings have pipes that are degrading and an upgrade can resolve issues such as clanking noises, low water pressure and even exposure to lead.


Tankless Hot Water Heaters


Compact in size, tankless hot water heaters heat water only when it is needed. Compared to their larger, conventional counterparts, these heaters operate on demand, eliminating the need for a storage tank and also the risk of water damage and leaks. A great investment, these models reduce water waste and can last for over 20 years.


Advanced Technology


From water-saving showers to high efficiency toilets, touch-free sinks and temperature control systems, plumbing technology is going great places in 2018. Wireless connectivity allows homeowners to save energy while enjoying on-demand hot water and easily monitoring home systems.


Beautiful Bathtubs


Previously considered outdated, the bathtub is back! This year, freestanding and other types of tubs are likely to grow in popularity when combined with modern design and technology. Many designs and materials are available.
