A New Way of Plumbing – Providing Flexibility in Design


BY

September 20th, 2022


Session Synopsis

Though plumbing is an integral part of most building projects, it does tend to cause of a lot of difficulties. Whether they involve barriers to access, the need to drill into wall cavities, or the renovation of existing wet areas, these difficulties also tend to be both labour-intensive and expensive.

On top of that, conventional plumbing techniques place significant constraints on architects and designers. They limit the possible locations for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundries – and because of this – they force these professionals into choices they would otherwise avoid.

Now, with the introduction of several new technologies, there is hope that all these problems may become things of the past. Products like macerator pumps, grey water pumps, and lifting stations have the potential to introduce a new way of plumbing.

In this presentation, our speakers explain how these products work, how they can make life better for you (as an architect or designer), and how to incorporate them into your next building project.

Key Learning Outcomes

At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:

  • Outline the difficulties and challenges associated with conventional plumbing.
  • Identify the latest plumbing products on the market and explain how they work.
  • Nominate the types of applications for which macerator pumps, grey water pumps, and lifting stations are most suitable.
  • Explain how these products can help solve many of the problems associated with plumbing and be of benefit to architects and designers.
