“We’re honored to be included in this important resource for building professionals,” said Cheryl Dixon, GROHE America‘s Head of Brand and Trade Marketing. “This award for the elegant yet highly functional GROHE Blue Chilled & Sparkling system affirms that GROHE is a leader in innovation and impeccable design.”

GROHE Blue Chilled & Sparkling combines a modern faucet with a high-performance filter, cooler and carbonator – and is as easy to use as an ordinary kitchen faucet. The right lever on the faucet is used to mix hot and cold tap water as usual, while a single turn of the left handle provides filtered and chilled, medium sparkling or full sparkling water. It is also equipped with two separate internal waterways to ensure that once the water has been filtered, it never comes into contact with anything that may alter taste.

According to a recent blind taste test , 73 percent of participants concluded GROHE Blue Chilled & Sparkling offered superior freshness over leading still mineral water. The product eliminates the need for plastic bottles and pays for itself in less than 250 days, saving you nearly $400 in the first year of use. Using a GROHE Blue filter system means taking responsibility for the environment.
