EcoSmart is trendsetting
Climate protection starts with showering and an ecological approach to hand washing. As a champion of the value of water, hansgrohe assumes a pioneering role in dealing with this precious resource. hansgrohe mixers and showers, which are fitted with EcoSmart technology, require up to 60% less water than conventional products. Lower hot water consumption means a lower energy requirement. That means: fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs.
Your daily shower water requirement is reduced by up to 60%, thanks to a sophisticated flow limiter, special jets and the admixture of air. The hansgrohe Raindance EcoSmart overhead shower requires only 9 litres of water per minute, while the Crometta 85 Green overhead and hand shower requires only 6 litres of water per minute. No matter your water pressure a “precision O-ring” reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts water quantity. If the pressure is high, the ring makes the opening smaller. If it is low, it expands the opening.
Approximately 13 litres of water per minute run through a commercial basin mixer. Thanks to EcoSmart techology, water consumption in all hansgrohe mixers is reduced by up to 60%*, to around 5 litres per minute. How does that work? By adding air and by using a special flow limiter. 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 drinking water.
* without EcoSmart: 13 litres per minute at 3 bar.
