GROHE water and energy saving technologies and products

GROHE has developed a line of smart water-saving products that use less water but do not reduce the enjoyment of the experience. GROHE EcoJoy faucets, for example, use a flow-limiting mousseur to reduce water consumption from 10 litres per minute to just over five litres. But because GROHE EcoJoy faucets also have an aerator, the user experiences the same voluminous flow as that given by a regular faucet.

With GROHE SilkMove ES the starting point of the lever in the mid-position only allows the inflow of cold water and prevents unnecessary hot water consumption. This ensures to save energy.

GROHE Blue provides sparkling, medium sparkling and still water that is filtered and chilled directly from the kitchen tap.
