EcoSmart is trendsetting
Climate protection begins 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 the EcoSmart technology, require up to 60% less water than conventional products – and without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption means lower energy requirement. And that means: fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs.
Thanks to the enrichment of water with air, EcoSmart means: Showering pleasure with a soft, plump water jet. You will feel the difference on your skin. Eco? Logical.
EcoSmart showers – facts and functionality
Your daily shower water demand is reduced by up to 60%: thanks to a sophisticated flow limiter, special jets and the admixture of air. Thus the Raindance EcoSmart overhead and hand showers from Hansgrohe dispense only 9.5 litres of water per minute, and the Crometta 85 Green overhead and hand showers dispense 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 mixers – facts and functionality
Thirteen litres of water per minute run through a conventional basin mixer. In all Hansgrohe mixers, EcoSmart lowers water consumption by up to 60%*, to around 5 litres per minute. How does that work? By adding air and by means of a special flow limitation system. The EcoSmart aerator is integrated into the spout of the mixer and enriches the water with air, available in unlimited supply. The result is a full, bubbling water jet. 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 0.3 Mpa (3 bar)
Other water saving technologies that quickly pay off
Anyone looking for a real water-saving miracle should utilise 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.
