Using water with care has become imperative, and there is an unmistakable aspiration toward a more mindful lifestyle. Recognising the significance of even the smallest endeavours in water conservation, GROHE offers some innovative solutions needed to tackle this problem.

The water-saving EcoJoy technology for taps as well as hand and head showers helps to decrease water consumption. A flow limiter reduces the water flow without sacrificing performance or comfort. For example, a tap equipped with EcoJoy has a water flow of just up to five litres per minute instead of ten. And using this in combination with GROHE SilkMove ES additionally allows consumers to save energy.

Operating a conventional tap with the lever in the standard middle position always results in a mixed hot and cold-water flow—even when only briefly rinsing a toothbrush or washing hands. This unnecessary energy consumption is prevented by the SilkMove ES (Energy Saving) cartridge, which ensures that only cold water is dispensed as long as the tap lever remains in the default centre position. Warm water flows only when the lever is intentionally turned to the left.

Thermostats are an ideal addition to any shower system, as they maintain the chosen water temperature for the duration of the shower, so there is no need to spend time readjusting. Many GROHE models include the EcoButton, which only allows the full water flow when pressed. So, up to 50 per cent of water can be saved without even a conscious effort.

The GROHE Blue water system transforms the kitchen tap into a direct source of fresh drinking water—whether at home or in the office. This eliminates the need for single-use plastic bottles and provides the exact amount of water needed, tailored to individual preferences, filtered, chilled, still or sparkling. In addition, GROHE Blue not only helps combat the global plastic waste problem by preventing plastic waste from the get-go, but also indirectly saves the water and CO2 emissions that occur during the production of bottled water.
