Go green in the bathroom! Water-saving technologies in GROHE products

06 of January '22

Ecology and water saving together with GROHE


Water is one of our planet's most precious resources. Unfortunately, climate change is causing the amount of water in the world to decrease every year. Drought is becoming a problem affecting not only remote African countries, but also increasingly European cities. Fortunately, we are becoming more environmentally conscious and trying to develop good habits. Unfortunately, in the daily rush, this doesn't always work out for us. That's why manufacturers of fixtures, such as the GROHE brand, are introducing a number of technologies in their products that allow the ecological use of water. Importantly - thanks to innovations, saving doesn't have to mean a loss of comfort.

Everyday ecology

According to various studies, each of us uses an average of about 125 liters of water per day. We wash our hands, face, teeth, take a shower, experience relaxation in the bathtub. If we have children, we still soak stained clothes and definitely run the washing machine more often. During the day, we use the sink faucet most often. We use it an average of thirty times a day. And this is where we can make the first savings. In its products, the GROHE brand combines an ecological approach with consistent user comfort through the use of various technologies. One example is GROHE EcoJoy technology, which can reduce water consumption by up to 50% in single-lever basin faucets and up to 40% in showers. This is because the basin faucets use a water flow limiter that reduces water consumption from 10 to just over 5 liters per minute. Fortunately, you don't have to worry that an inefficient and troublesome stream of water will then flow out of the faucet. Responsible for maintaining the comfort of using water is the aerator at the spout, which aerates the outflowing water, making the water stream abundant and soft. EcoJoy technology is available in a number of GROHE single-lever faucet models and showers of varying designs and prices.

Smooth operation and energy savings

One of the few positive effects of the current pandemic is that we are washing our hands more and more often. So it's worth knowing how to use your sink faucet to save water. First of all, turn off the flow of water when brushing your teeth, shaving or applying shampoo to your hair. You may think it doesn't change much, but leaving the water "open" during a three-minute brushing session will waste at least 18 liters of water in this way, and often even about 30. When you multiply this by the number of household members and the number of days in a year, the result is even more than 40,000 liters of water per year! That's why shutting off water is an absolute must for ecological and economical use of the bathroom. The most convenient way to shut off water is with a single-lever faucet, that is, equipped with a ceramic head with a practical mixer handle. This is much more convenient than a two-handle faucet. It allows you to shut off the water for brushing your teeth in one motion, and just as easily run it to rinse your toothbrush. Grohe single-lever faucets feature a head with GROHE SilkMove technology, which provides exceptionally smooth and reliable water control. The secret to easy and precise control of water flow and temperature in GROHE products is also the use of GROHE SilkMove ES technology . Compared to the standard GROHE SilkMove head, this variant ensures that when the faucet lever is set in the center position, the water flow coming out of the spout is always cold. This reduces unnecessary hot water consumption. As a result, a family of four can contribute to reducing about 279 kg of CO2 emissions and saving about 31.4 liters of water per year. SilkMove ES heads use high-quality ceramic discs, which ensure exceptionally smooth faucet operation and a long service life.

Saving even in the shower

A showerhead is associated with luxury, even with superfluity, and by no means with restrained water management. However, there are overhead shower models on the market equipped with a water flow restrictor. The flow limiter reducing consumption to 9.5 liters per minute used in GROHE brand show ers makes the pleasure of showering in this unique form doubly eco - ecological and economical at the same time. An example is the GROHE Tempesta 250 rain shower, which combines bathing comfort with water saving. It is also worth investing in a shower system equipped with a thermostatic faucet. GROHE Turbostat technology allows you to set the right water parameters in a fraction of a second, which will already be maintained until the end of the bath. The Grohtherm 1000 Performance faucet additionally features an EcoButton, which makes it easy to reduce water consumption by reducing the flow through the mixer by as much as half. It will also allow you to quickly increase it to full power, if needed.
