In an ordinary day, when everything in your home works perfectly fine, you would rather spend your
valuable time doing anything but plumbing repair. Unless you’re a plumber, or when all hell breaks loose in your bathroom sink, plumbing would seem to be the last thing on your mind. However, it would pay you to spend a little time reading this article for you to get a good grasp of how unimaginable your life would be without the presence of plumbing fixtures in your home.
Any installed device which helps in proper draining of wastewater and delivery of potable water around your home or any building is called a plumbing fixture. Some of these fixtures can be found in your home or other modern buildings from around the world. These fixtures may include a wall hung toilet, urinals, bathroom sinks, bathtubs, walk in showers, and drinking fountains. But perhaps the most important fixture of all is the ubiquitous toilet, and to create a more subtle effect for people who don’t find the “toilet” word comfortable, society always has a way with using other words, in which “restroom” and “lavatory” are the most common alternatives. Whatever you call it, a toilet is of course built for a single purpose: the disposal of human waste, in any forms you can imagine.
Modern technology has found its way into the construction of bathroom plumbing fixtures. Today’s hotels and modern offices make use of plumbing fixtures with automatic sensors. For instance, a urinal with a built-in sensor automatically flushes once a user leaves the urinal after every use. Such sensors help conserve substantial amount of water and also help reduce the cost for installing air-fresheners since a urinal automatically flushes for each instance it is used, compare that to manually operated system where users either flush a couple of times or they simply forget to flush their liquid waste down the drain. So the next time you visit your toilet, you’ll know why “comfort” has been added to the “Comfort Room”—thanks to these plumber fixtures!
