• Smart water system lets families in Germany prevent the use of up to 800 plastic water bottles every year and reduces CO2 emissions by more than 60%
• Users can choose among still, medium and sparkling and even add magnesium to their water – all perfectly chilled and delivered by a single faucet
• State-of-the-art filter system can get rid of chlorine, biocides, pesticides and bacteria in geographical regions with insufficient water quality
Düsseldorf, 15th August 2019. 106 litres. That is how much bottled water the average European citizen drinks every year. Yet with the current discussion on CO2 emissions and plastic pollution impacting the health of our planet, the need to reduce the use of bottled water, in particular that which is served in single-use plastic bottles, has never been more pressing.
A Smart Solution
The good news is that the GROHE Blue Home water system can help anyone start reducing their plastic usage right now. Compatible with even the smallest kitchen space, the system provides deliciously chilled, filtered ‘unbottled’ water. Users can even choose among still, medium and sparkling or use filters that add magnesium – all from a single faucet.
In fact, by switching to the GROHE Blue Home water system, an average family of four for example in Germany can avoid an average of around 800 plastic bottles every year without sacrificing on quality or taste. Better still, the system also delivers a reduction of up to 60% in CO2 emissions compared to bottled water.
Stylish and Safe
Along with making it easier for people to live sustainably and take control of their own well-being, the GROHE Blue Home water system’s sleek design and available colour finishes make a stylish addition to any kitchen.
Meanwhile, the state-of-the-art filter technology captures a range of impurities that can inhibit taste. While taste is the only matter in many regions of the world, there are also countries where water directly from the faucet cannot be used for every purpose due to its insufficient quality. Intended for these regions, the specific GROHE Blue Home Ultrasafe filter version removes not only biocides but also pesticides and bacteria from the water.
Thus, in those regions the Ultrasafe filter version can turn previously non-potable water into drinking water, unlocking valuable resources where poor water quality is a problem and thus also contributing to further reducing the reliance on bottled water in these regions.
Convenience and Control
For added convenience and control, users can link their GROHE Blue Home to the GROHE Ondus app. Compatible with any up-to-date smartphone or tablet device, the app automatically tells them when their system’s filter or CO2 bottle needs changing and lets them order a replacement at the touch of a button. The app can also be used to track water consumption, helping busy households stay on top of how much they’re drinking – thus keeping up with a healthy lifestyle routine.
The latest innovation of GROHE Blue Home was just honoured by consumers as “Kitchen Innovation of the Year 2019” for its product benefits, user-friendliness and design: The pull-out spout provides ultimate flexibility and maximum convenience in day-to-day usage.
A Sustainable Mission
The GROHE Blue Home water system is an integral part of the company’s mission to design and manufacture products that let people responsibly use the planet’s water and energy resources – without having to sacrifice on quality, enjoyment or taste.
