1. Ultra-thin showerheadS | California Faucets

California Faucets Ultra Thin Showerhead

Ultra-Thin Showerheads measure just 5/16 inch thick, offering a clean, minimalistic aesthetic. The round and square showerheads (six-, eight-, 10-, or 12-inch sizes) are among the thinnest on the market and deliver a robust, rain-like drenching spray. Each fitting features 80 to 120 self-cleaning rubber jets with a maximum flow rate from 1.5 to 2.5 gpm, depending on the model. The showerheads are constructed of solid brass and are available in more than 30 finishes, including 15 PVD finishes with a lifetime warranty against tarnishing. Each has a ½-inch swivel inlet and can be mounted on the wall or ceiling.

American Standard's self-cleaning toilet

The ActiClean self-cleaning toilet from American Standard combines the power of VorMax flushing technology, which the company describes as delivering the cleanest flush ever, with a fully integrated, user-activated self-cleaning system. The user just needs to push a button and the ActiClean system covers the bowl with cleaning fluid followed by a soak and a rinse. The ActiClean toilet was named a 2017 R&D 100 Award finalist in the Process and Prototyping category.


3. EZ1 drainage system | Zurn Industries

Breakdown of Zurn's EZ1 drainage system

Offered in cast iron and plastic and shipped ready to install out of the box, the EZ1 drainage system can save contractors up to 14 minutes per drain installation, according to the maker. It includes an easy post-pour adjustment and tilt accessory package. Unlike competitor products, EZ1’s strainer is built into the assembly and lifts with the rough-in cover to ease contractor labor. Optional ZShield stops odors, gases, and insects from coming up through the drain while still allowing water to flow.


4. 30x30 SHOWER | Bestbath

Bathroom with bestbath's 30X30 shower

Designed for projects where space is at a premium, the 30x30-inch multi-piece shower provides the look and functionality of the company’s full-sized shower units in a compact, retrofit-friendly package. Features on-trend subway tile finish, 90-degree corners, and wood-backed walls. Backed by an industry-best 30-year warranty.
