Outdated Plumbing Products

Some plumbing products from the past are more than outdated; they can be downright dangerous. What may have been the industry standard before should no longer be considered an option. With that in mind, whether you’re remodeling your home or building a new one, make sure your plumbers are using the most up-to-date products available.

Don’t use the following:

Lead Plumbing – Even though lead plumbing products are now banned by law, some lead-based products still manage to reach the market. If you’re working with a professional plumber, this shouldn’t be an issue. At Zurn Plumbing, your safety and satisfaction is our top priority.

Galvanized Piping – Although products in this category are still used, they lack durability and efficiency. They are prone to developing rust buildup, therefore restricting water flow and deteriorating the pipe. There are more modern solutions that are lighter, easier to install, and much more efficient. The easiest solution is to let Zurn take care of it. We’ll do it right!

Inefficient Toilets – Toilets have come a long way over the years. Not too long ago, the average toilet used 2-3 times the amount of water that today’s standard toilets use. That’s a lot of wasted water and outrageous utility bills. Investing in a new toilet now could save you a ton of money in the long run.

Even if you have an outdated product that isn’t technically broken, it could still be an issue that is costing you more than you realize. Also, now more than ever, working with a professional, certified plumbing company can mean the difference between getting a job done and getting it done right. A cheaper, less qualified plumber can be more costly if the job isn’t done right or outdated products are used.
