EcoSmart is trendsetting
Climate protection starts with showering, ecological behaviour with 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 lower energy requirements. That means: fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs. Calculate your own personal savings potential online now.
EcoSmart showers – facts and functionality
Your daily shower water need is reduced by up to 60 percent: thanks to sophisticated flow limitation, special jets and the admixture of air. The Hansgrohe Raindance EcoSmart overhead and hand 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.
EcoSmart basin mixers – facts and functionality
Around 13 litres of water per minute run through a commercial 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. 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 pressures and alters its shape. It limits the flow, thus constantly saving drinking water.
