Our eco showers and taps save water
Ecological behaviour starts with showering and washing hands consciously. As a champion of the value of water, Hansgrohe assumes a pioneering role in dealing with ways to conserve water in South Africa and worldwide. Hansgrohe water saving taps and showers require up to 60% less water than conventional products. Lower hot water consumption means lower energy requirements too. That means: fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs. Calculate your own personal savings potential online now.
EcoSmart showers – water saving shower heads
A sophisticated flow limiter, special jets and the mixture of air in our water saving showers reduce your water consumption by up to 60%. The Raindance EcoSmart overhead and hand showers from Hansgrohe use only 9.5 litres of water per minute, while the Crometta 85 Green overhead and hand showers use only 6 litres of water per minute. It does not matter how high your water pressure is: a “precision O-ring” reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts the water quantity. If the pressure is high, the ring makes the opening smaller. If it is low, it expands the opening.
EcoSmart basin mixers – water saving taps
Approximately 13 litres of water per minute run through a conventional basin mixer. Thanks to EcoSmart technology, water consumption in all Hansgrohe basin mixers is reduced by up to 60 percent*, to around 5 litres per minute. This works by adding air and by means of a special flow limiter inside the basin mixer. The EcoSmart aerator is integrated into the spout of the basin mixer and enriches the water with air. The result is a full, bubbling jet of water. A “precision elastomer” responds automatically to different water pressure and alters its shape. It limits the flow, thus constantly saving water.
* without EcoSmart: 13 litres per minute at 0.3 Mpa (3 bar)
Other water saving devices that quickly pay off
Anyone looking for a real water-saving miracle should use non-contact mixers with infrared-sensing electronics. These mixers ensure that water only flows when you really need it. Consumption is controlled by smart sensor technology, with an extremely short run-on time, and limits the water flow to approximately 5 litres per minute.
