The Future of Plumbing

A recent plumbing fair in Germany gave an insight into the future of the industry over the next five to 10 years.

Held in Frankfurt every two years, the ISH bathroom fair showcases innovations in plumbing, building, energy, heating and cooling.


The fair attracts around 200,000 visitors from around the world over four days.

This year's motto was "Comfort meets Technology" with the Fair including many European brands that use the event to launch their latest products for possible sale in other markets, including here in Australia.


The stand out products included innovative installation techniques, connectivity and the continued focus on safety and quality.
